Recently, the demand on big cats increased in FOW mainly due to new books. I know that FiB released their own Tiger II (Henschel). I published short review with dimensions for the BF one.

Miroslaw, that is beautiful painting you've done.

However, the gun looks really, really odd on that model, like it's far too thick or long, I'm not sure what. It's more apparent in pictures like this:

BF models usually have a little bit more "bulky" guns. It is visible in nearly all comparisons (e.g., with PSC).

After you pointed it out I started to look at the photos like I had never seen the model before. And you're right especially at the last photo. Maybe it is a matter of perspective at photos. I have a feeling that In reality the barrel doesn't look so odd.

It looks like a really cool model to me. Would be happy to have that one in my collection.

Well done!

Thanks for posting the dimensions. I wondered how the BF model compares to my Old Glory Tiger IIs.
