Default Once a Tiger, Always a Tiger!

I think it is in Poland. Look what some TLC can do. As I understand it will once again be a Tiger.

After a very long time of "Tiger" parts purchasing, acquiring from each sides, collecting even the smallest elements - we've made the decision about rebuilding the vehicle of our dreams - Pz VI Tiger 1. "It will be rebuilt to running standard, but most likely that with modern v12" Panzer-Farm, April 2017.

Hi Bob,
It is a group of armor entusiasts in Poland who work on the Tiger. They also work on a SD. Kfz. 250. Visit them here: https://www.facebook.com/PanzerFarm/

Collecting the whole Tiger and not the Maybach engine?
I don't understand this.

Hi,

to put a Tiger in running condition is just too much work and money.

See You

Vince
