I recommend a change to the title of the post...put King Tiger first in the title. I gets cut off and few will know that a SdKfz 182 is a King Tiger.

Many will miss this great thread.


Having said that, I wish they had used a more accurate camouflage pattern on it.

Good Hunting.

I'm surprised it didn't suffer a mechanical breakdown during that clip. ;)  The restorers must have ironed out all the bugs.

Biggest factor was the underpowered engine, causing breakdowns.
With nowadays tankengines that shouldnt be a problem though :)
