My version of the most famous German tank of WW2 era. Panzerkampfwagen VI Tiger I

Tiger I was always my favorite WW2 tank. And I wanted to build it for a long time.
And now, it has been finally been finished.
I was working on it for a very long time: from May 2011. Since then I have worked on it for almost 35 hours. I have made a lot of changes, had enormous will to put as more detail as I could, but I still wanted it to look very clean and be as much studless as possible.
See it on:

Great interior for such a small space to try to squeeze stuff/detial into.

Thank you!
Well, i really was not easy.
I have been redoing the interior for 3 times  :hmpf_bad:
But it was definitely worth it  :classic: !

Nice work  :thumbup:

Too bad Lego is against everything war themed, I'd buy this in a heartbeat, but they have no problems with Pirate Ships, swords, guns and cannons, seems like a double standard to me.

Love the Angry Bird and the use of Imperial logo as the exhaust. Room for minifigs?

Yes, that is not fair from LEGO  :sceptic:

And yes, it can fit 2 minifigs in front, on the tan seats  :classic:

This is an absolutely fantastic rendition of a Tiger. I do love the fact you managed an interior too. Perhaps maybe a decal or two now? :D

I don't really agree personally. Star Wars and Pirates are very fantastical lines. Even though pirates are based on something sinister in history, the pirates Lego choose to make are very stylised and represent what pirates are in popular culture. A bit of a joke right now it seems. This kind of model represents something that is still very recent in peoples minds in terms of history, and what some would consider a great evil.
'If' they ever did this sort of thing I'd never expect it to be minifig scale, something like the WW1 aircraft they once did would keep more to their morals. I'm even surprised they made those. Although saying that, Indiana Jones proves me wrong, but I like to discount that because again, its fantastical.

I say, leave it to the MoCers and the plastic kit manufacturers, and I'm sure all this has been covered before so I apologise if I am repeating   :tongue:  

Anywho! Thumbs up again McDuck!  :thumbup:

Great Tank! Love the detail work and SNOT. Question: why the rubber on two of the road wheels?
"When some wild-eyed, eight-foot-tall maniac grabs your neck, taps the back of your favorite head up against the barroom wall, and he looks you crooked in the eye and he asks you if ya paid your dues, you just stare that big sucker right back in the eye, and you remember what ol' Jack Burton always says at a time like that: "Have ya paid your dues, Jack?" "Yessir, the check is in the mail."

Well, I won't put any decals because this model is going to Croatian Kockice LUG exhibition in a week, and they dn not allow any custom parts or decals.

Actually, there is rubber on 3 road wheels and the reason is that the tracks would look bad without that extra milimeters in wheel diameter.

Also, that wheels will be replaced by 3x3 dishes, when I get them in the amount needed.

One of the best I have ever seen, the angry bird isn't bad either :P as a rough estimate how many parts did it take to make?

There is very much small plates in the base of the tank- the part where i atached the wheels and I used a lot of small tiles in interior.
That is the main reason of large piece approximation.
