Great Tank

Having a blast with this tank. No problems whatsoever. Only wish the turret would turn a full 360 degrees. But that's a cheap and easy fix.

Impressed

This tank was more than I expected, so far. The sounds and smoke are great and it handles as expected. The BB’s had good distance. Looking forward to some battles.

Very good quality, and very large!

This is a very detailed tank, no damage in shipping and everything works perfectly...I love the smoke generator.

Tiger 1

Everything worked as advertised only a couple of problems which were overcame. #1 The battery which it came with had a bad cell and wouldnt take charge I just replaced it with a different battery was going to upgrade anyway no big deal. #2 Had issues with the decals staying had to glue them down seemed they wouldnt stay stuck to tank not a real big issue. Overall Im very happy with it .

Exceptional Tank for the price, with a few minor issues

Overall, this is a great operating and looking tank. For the price, it would be great just as a display model, but very cool that it has all the sounds (okay, the sounds are great!) and works as advertised. The details on it are very nice. However, just a couple of things. The vinyl decals are a joke. They simply don’t stick to the tank. You peel off the bottom clear layer, position the decals, rub them onto the tank, wait 15 minutes (as per the instructions), then peel the top layer off. Guess what, the decals peel right off with the top clear layer! There is just no adhesive on the decals themselves (again, I did peel off the bottom clear layer). I had to very carefully peel the decals off the top layer while pushing them down on to a flat surface. Once off (with a few torn decals in the process) I then used a little CA spread on with a tooth pick held by tweezers and then positioned them onto the tank. Callie Graphics may be the answer to this situation. Another minor grip is that some of the little molded-in pins to the detail items that you push into the various holes were busted off. Thus, more CA. Finally, the instructions had a lot of grammatical errors. They were not super clear and clearly not written by someone with a strong grasp of the English language. But bottom line, I’m very happy with the Tiger I tank and would certainly by it again, despite some of the cons. I added a little camouflage to my Tiger with an airbrush. Thought that really made it stand out. Also decided to get the upgrade version rather than the professional version that had the metal tracks and a couple of metal drive wheels. The motors and gear boxes are exactly the same with both (from what I can tell), but with the all that extra metal it looks like the professional version is 5 pounds heavier than the upgrade version (10 pounds versus 5). That’s 5 extra pounds the same motor, gear box, and battery has to move along. Thus, for my occasional outings with my Tiger I just didn’t see the need for the metal and extra weight. Hope my review helped!
