Their stuff is nice. Wish they did it in Wargames scales. Few people have space for 1/35.

Or the money.

thumbs up

Also smaller versions of that are made in 1/72, 1/87, 6mm, etc., AFAIK. E.g. GHQ ghqmodels.com/store/g32.html

Hobbyboss is a scale model manufacturer that does not cater to the wargames market. I have quite a few of their 1/48 models that I use for heroic 28mm scale gaming (I am a "heretic" who do not use 1/56 models as I deem them too small). They are fiddly with high part counts so must be handled with due care for gaming use.

The King Tiger (both Henschel and Porsche) has been done to death in every scale. You should have no problem finding one in the scale of your choice from a myriad of manufacturers.

Most of us know all this. You're missing the point.

Au contraire. I could say the ones who are really "missing the point" are those who think that a scale model manufacturer like Hobby Boss, which had never shown the slightest interest in catering to the wargames market, would release a King Tiger or any other subject in one or more of the wargame scales when we're already spoiled for choice in King Tigers at just about any scale.
