Jens Andrée Bought this Tiger I for my oldest son who sadly gave up after sanding the first half of the road wheels and gave it to me to finish it.
I expected better quality for the price I payed for it... Lots of flashing on the sprues and the fit is a bit wonky. Great selection of decals though - but don't expect them to be realistic because they are from the game World of Tanks. Quite obvious actually
Should be a nice tank when the paint and weathering is finished though.

Daniel Smith I saw that Hobbylobby is carring Italeri kits now, and they have this one for $49.99 USD. But with the 40% off coupon it's only $29.99 USD, might pick this one up the next time I'm in.

Urban Gardini There's a risk that the WoT code in the box is invalid. I saw something earlier before the summer at least that the codes had an expire date but I'm not sure as it never was of interest for me. But it might be something to check up but on the other hand it's 40% off so why complain eh...

Daniel Smith Yeah I'm not a World of Tank player, so if the codes were to be invalid no big deal. One of the videos that's on Italeri's website says those codes are only valid for new players only. My local hobbylobby also had Italeri M4 Sherman #36503, have not been able to find much information about that one. Also the decal options are limited for World of Tank units only, but I could be wrong. So might have to after market a decal sheet if that's the case.

Urban Gardini The kits in this WoT range from Italeri isn't up to modern class and as you say the decals is WoT only. Personally I wouldn't buy any of these WoT kits and then I do play the game from time to time. But that's me and the decision is up to you in the end.
Indeed, as Urban said, ultimately the choice is yours. But I feel I must warn you that the WoT kits suffer from quite a bit of problems, not in the least the molding quality. I wrote about it a while ago here: SCM Newsfeed
In the mean time I have been able to personally verify that more of those WoT kits follow the same pattern that I mentioned in the post in that link. Italeri really isn't targeting the more serious modeler with those kits.
So yeah... I really like some of those older Italeri kits, and I have bought a couple, like the #6502 M24 Chaffee and the #240 Chevrolet Gun Tractor (D-Day Edition). But the WoT kits specifically, I wouldn't touch them with a ten foot pole

herbert otto gille i just finished the W.O.T. tiger 1 overall a cheap kit with some issues .... it comes in 2 sorts early / late i preferred the late ( have some spare parts from dragon late tigers ) so i can correct some flaws , the decals are indeed from W.O.T but i have dozens of spare decals so i built her in the SCHW PZ abt 505 the kit in itself is no match to dragon or even tamiya ,but ok ill just have to do it with her the parts do fit quite good , just here and there some minor adjustments , little bit of flash but ok , ive had better tiger 1 and worse so i give her a 70 out of 100
