... is it to build a Tamiya RC 1/16 full option Tiger I? I know a few of you guys here have them so I thought this was a good place to ask. I'd hate to spend alot of $ on something that will never be built/finished just because it's to hard.

When I bought mine, I hadn't built a model in almost 30 years. When I opened the box, I was dumb struck. I figured there was no way I could build this monster. There are a zillion pieces... At least it looked that way. Big Grin

But if you read over the instructions carefully a few times and follow them to the letter, you'll be fine. Wink

I think I recorded my time and it took me about 200 hours. But it was so much fun that I just ordered a King Tiger. Cool

Thanks for the info Bernie. I'll order one first thing after x-mas. Sounds like a handfull but looking at the picture of yours I'd say it has got to be worth it a gazillion peices or not. Wink Just looks awesome, and that diorama you placed it on looks really great too. I haven't buildt a model in +15 years but if you could do it hopefully so can I.

Good luck with that King Tiger. I'm looking forward to seeing some "in-production" photos here on the forum when you get started on it. Wink

If youíve had some experience with basic plastic model building and have some basics with small hand tools youíll be O.K. Paint is sometimes a problem for folks but with the Tamiya kit you can do a basic all gray or all dark yellow paint job and if your even a novice with a spray can itíll turn out good. Only problem with the hobby spray bombs is most are very small quantities so it takes a bunch of cans to cover a 1/16th tank.

And if you become hung up just come on here and ask for help. Smile
