Greetings All,
I picked up Dragon's Kubelwagen W/Cold weather starter kit this weekend.
The instructions show this being used with either a Panther or a Jagdtiger.What I am wondering is could this be used on a Tiger as well? I only ask because I already have the Tiger kit.
Thanks for the help.

I see no reason why not. Most, if not all, German tanks were fitted with a hand cranked inertia starter to conserve battery power for combat situations. On the Tiger, I belive, the crank fitted behind the circular plate at the bottom of the rear plate, between the exhausts. This would be where the cold weather starter was connected.

Thanks Geoff, That's what I figured too. Just hoped for some confirmation.
