All:

Looking around, I've found the following aftermarket uprades for Tamiya's R/C 1:16 Tiger I:

Armour Concepts Transmission/Motor Upgrade Kit
Kenny Kong's Metal Tracks
Aber's 1:16 Photo Etch Set
Applied Effects Speed Reduction Kit

Does anyone know of other manufacturers/kits/upgrades?

Thanks in advance for your assistance

Does anyone know of any other upgrades?

I believe tamiya has a turned barrel and grill set for their big Tiger but maybe you already knew that.

Again, like a broken record, I saw them both on e-bay and I could not tell you what the prices were. But they seem to be there alot so this must mean they are around being supplied by someone.

Thanks for the info guys. I "put together" the Tiger this weekend. I say it with quotes because, with the exception of the road wheels, I didn't use any glue. I did a dry fitting of parts, and used masking tape to hold together those items which weren't augmented by hardware.

I'll take a couple of quick snaps later tonight before I add the receiver, batteries, etc.
