Clearly, you and your buddies have a keen eye for quality vehicles ;-)
The Tiger was built under the original "at least 36 inch" rule (we added 
the 1:6 scale clause later), so the hull (not counting fenders) is 
exactly 36 inches long.  The other dimensions are scaled accordingly 
from the plans.

Back then, I made my own "low quality" plans from a couple photos, but 
now you can get some excellent, highly detailed drawings from George 
Bradford (one of the masters of tank modeling) for only $2 each (truly 
the most awesome deal in the plans world).  See


for details.

Once again, your eyes know quality when you see it.  The "Tri-Pact Track 
System" (TTS) has now equal ... although many have tried to copy it ;-)

If I recall, we have a couple other people in the Rocky Mountain area. 
If so, please speak up so that John and his buddies know your whereabouts.
