Yep, that is right !!

I plan to do the Henschel, Porsche and Jagdtiger .

Yes the Jagdtiger will be the proper length .

I have been wanting to do this project for years .

I have heard from RELIABLE SOURCES that Allgo will not make it.

So I will start next month !!

yay! Make a booth at SDCC next year, you'll sell DOZENS! :)

Can't wait to see this.. what do you think the price will be roughly?
My T-34 sold for $300.

The T2 is bigger with a lot more wheels and bigger tracks.

I am thinking of a price point of $350.

Maybe a tad high for the most part but it will be the only chance to get a K2 in 1/18th scale.

$350 is a car note but there will probably be $60 or so worth of resin and probably a day and a half to pour.

So all in all $350 is reasonable for the work and materials that it will take to produce this beast.

Wow, this is going to be awesome! I will have to get one! Do you do pre-orders or down payments?

Starting times have come and gone.

I am now spraying the final paint on my last 2 Hortens.

After these last 2 Hortens , the Horten will be officially retired .

That being said the Tiger II will start this week !!!

I am pulling in all of my resources to try and put the K2 on the fast track.

Hopefully this project will not be as loooooooong as the Horten.

Finally I have something to show.

I was all set up to start but my real work schedule kept on interrupting the start date.

Of course I can not take credit for the build I contracted a 3-D printer to have the majority of the parts made because I just did not have the time.

Here are the pics I have toi show.

I tapped the holes for the pioneer tools but did not have the time to finish the tools and mount them.

Scratch another one off of the dream list.

Thanks guys !!

Yet another big over head ( $$ ) project.

So far I have $750 worth of RTV in the moulds and will probably push over $1,000 when I am done.

I probably will have about $250 worth of resin to make all the orders.

Hopefully production will start after next week.

Hopefully I can finish the proto this weekend.

Thanks guys it means a lot.

The top chassy does not sit on strait and the back hull joint is a little big due to the upper hull sitting on the extra long track pins. ( they are easier to pull out when long )

But I assure you she is tight and true.:thumbsup:

The Henschel run is almost done.

Hopefully when I get the last 2 Full builds ready I will be starting the Jagdtiger phase of the Tiger II project .
