if you're looking for a walkaround, you can find a Tiger II on the FFSMC.

Thanks for all the input. I decided to add the armor, along with some other items, to my Tiger. Since it has no basis on reality, I decided to name the model "The Tiger That Never Was". If nothing else it was a fun excercise in adding scratchbuilt pieces.

Ya know, IPMS contests have classes for "theoretical" ideas like yours so hang on to it! Cheers,
