How much would you pay for a DML late Tiger?

iow How much longer will it take for DML to re-issue the Tiger kits? I've been offered a late and an initial for 50,- each, but i think it's a rip-off....
any thoughts?

Comes down to supply and demand. If you can wait then don't pay, if you "have" to have it now then it's not expensive. Personally I would wait.

I'd say wait! But then again, I dont know the RRP it was sold at. And considering it doesn't need any AM bits, €50 is not a big rip-off I think.

Just my 2 cents (and your fifty euros LOL :mrgreen: )

The LHS I go to has an Initial Tiger with some sprue bags opened but complete and they were selling it for about $25. I am not sure if it is still available. I will have a look tomorrow and let you know.

Thanks for the insight guys
Lawrence, thanks for the offer, but i'm primarily interested in the Late version
I've made him an offer for the late, as i already have an initial on the shelf, and if he doesn't want to sell i'll wait for the reissue (whenever that may be)

50 Euro. It's only around 13 euro more than you'll (in Europe at least) have to pay for almost any new DML. But you need to finish your RSO first anyway

regards

Erik

I'm afraid I can say the same as James and Fletcher.....

I would suggest either buying a AFV club Tiger or a Tamiya one. The Tamiya Tiger I Mid was very fun to build, and FAST also. It has that well-known Tamiya fit, even the kit barrel went together nicely. All that is needed are some engine grilles. (The tracks just need some work in terms of filling the pin holes.)

50 Euros for a DML one, it is a bit too much I think.....it is a super kit, but nothing magical....
