Nice one Anthony !

I have a few photos of those Tunisian Tigers around.

I'm going with a F-5 Tiger or a Panther II tank from Dragon.

Nice pick Anthony. Just saw it at the LHS today. It works out to about US$57 -- very tempting ...

Just a reminder for those who haven't enlisted already, that you may do that now. We will be kicking this off 6-1-16. That gives everybody just over a month to finish up anything you may have in process currently and find a Big Cat to build. :-)

Cheers,
Dustin

I may get an aluminum barrel and AM machine guns. I also would like to get metal track links for this because I plan to model it with no front and side mudguards. So I'd like to be able to see good detail in the tracks.

Anthony, that's a beautiful Jagdtiger! I hope mine looks half as nice! What color did you use for the brown?

Hey fellas. We still need to select a ribbon. So far I believe we have 2 votes for ribbon #2 and 1 vote for ribbon #1.

Would anybody else like to vote?

Howdy Y'all
I'm in with a Dragon 1/72 King Tiger that I started for a previous Big Cats campaign. I never finished; got frustrated after I sheared the barrel off.

Would anyone have a recommendation for gluing the barrel back on to the mantle? I don't know if I should CA glue and hold it for a few minutes until it sets.

Obviously regular model cement didn't work.
By the way, I vote for #2 for the ribbon.
Take care,
Don "Lakota"

For the barrel, I would recommend drilling out each side and using a short length of wire to strengthen the joint. Just be carefully to center the holes or you will have a lop-sided barrel! I would use plastic cement if you have a clean join, but CA should work too if you have the wire.

Hey guys, I've been planning on building a king tiger/e-75 mashup for quite a while now and figured this campaign would be a good initiative.

The kits I plan to use are:

Dragon Kingtiger Last Production (6209)
Trumpeter E-50 (01536)
A bunch of other aftermarket stuff

Just wanted to run it by to see if crazy what-ifs are alright.
