So I picked up the latest 1/35 Tiger I MID Command Version kit by Cyber Hobby yesterday, kit #6660. There was only one and at $40 Cdn I wasn't going to pass it up and risk it being gone on Boxing Day. I also saw a Tamiya Tiger I there which included Aber photo etch and metal barrel. It was double the price of my C.H. kit. I understand that the Dragon kits are more accurate and better detailed, but I could get this Tamiya kit at a good discount on Boxing Day for probably $60Cdn. Are the Tamiya Tigers worth it?


P.S. When I got home and opened the box there was no instructions! I contacted Dragon Customer Service, put in a Ticket and had a PDF file emailed to me within 30 minutes, which I then printed out.
