James Vorster Does anybody know who the crew was in the "Tiki" tank? I'm building a crew and want to get the details right such as decorations and ranks. Thanks!

DByrden This is NOT an authentic representation of the featured tank, "Tiki" of "Das Reich".
The front wall of the turret is the wrong shape (on the left side).
The large bin on the back of the turret is the wrong type.
Both of the above can be corrected with aftermarket parts.
There are several other errors in the kit, that can be corrected while building it. e.g. the real "Tiki" had no tracks stored on the turret, so you can omit them.
The other decal option, Tiger 231, is a much better match to the kit (but it belonged to the 502 battalion, not the 505 as the instructions state).
