Does ANYONE make a Zimmerit set (either PE, resin, or pressed paper) for Revell's (or anyone's) Tiger ll with Porsche design turret, and is currently available? I've searched Google, and Scalemates (and other usual suspects), and can't find anything available. 1/72, of course!

No matter which way you look at their site, Monro Perdu do not make it... 1/72 for Henschel turret - yes, 1/48 for Porsche turret - yes. Seems like it must be only a matter of time that they do produce it, as they've already done nearly all the work!

Suggestions... a Henschel Zimmerit set, then scratch your own just on the turret; or perhaps the Trumpeter kit 07292 could be hacked if you want to spend the additional money?

Hmmm...Looks like I should have gotten the Trumpeter in the first place. Maybe get the Trumpeter and kit-bash with the Revell, if necessary.
