Hi Chuck, Hi Steve... A while ago David Byrden filled in a Tiger 'wish list' for me over on Missing-Lynx. One of the Tigers was an Early of the 4th/s.SS.Pz-Rgt. LSSAH. The mount of Helmut Wendorf, that managed to crash through the Ice of the Msha River SW of Kharkov in early spring of 1943. If I remember correctly Steve Ballantyne helped out with the location and some history etc; Anyway here are the threads, http://www.network54.com/Forum/47207/message/1216801147/%27Wendorf%27s%27+Tiger+on+ice
I believe that the DML CH 'Wittmann' was the prime kit for consideration in respect to depicting these early SS Tigers, though the 'Fehrmann' kit with a set of rubber roadwheels and a few donations from the initial Tiger #6252 is an option also. To build one from an DML intial would need a few tweaks and alterations to the stowage and additions to some later production features hi-lighted in David's list. Hope this helps.
