At last, the Tiger 131 Cobi model gets a spectacular upgrade! With 846 Cobi pieces this is a superior revised version of their best selling kit. We have a limited edition Tank Museum version with our own David Fletcher figure and Tiger 131 sign.
Tiger 131 was captured in Tunisia, April 1943, and was the first in-tact Tiger I to fall into Allied hands. Now a major exhibit at The Tank Museum, it is the world's only running Tiger I.
Compatible with other brands of building blocks, this is a stunning gift for all lovers of tanks, military history and Tiger 131 fanatics. Every purchase of this amazing model helps The Tank Museum to preserve Tiger 131 and ensure that this important piece of military history remains a working attraction for generations.
1/28 scale, 846 building blocks.
Not suitable for 0-3 year olds. Cobi is a standard building system from the Cobi Group and should not be confused with other building block properties including mini figures.

Enjoyed building this, easy to follow instructions, fantastic quality finished model. Can't wait until Sept for the new 131!
The kit turned out great, accurate except they didn't bother to figure a way to equip it with the proper three layers of interleaved road wheels (kit has two layers).
Also, Cobi could learn a thing or two from Lego regards clarity of instructions. Building instructions of the Lego Saturn 5 was well laid out, numbered parts bags corresponding to the pictographic steps.
In contrast Cobi had three big bags for steps 1-3 with each containing 8-10 unmarked sub bags and the parts for a step might see you opening 3-4 parts bags each containing a seemingly random selection of parts.
So many parts I haven't quite finished it yet, looking good so far, just follow instructions very carefully, or it might just be my old eyes.
A great looking kit once assembled with easy-to-follow instructions for the most part. I'm glad I got it.
Great details as you build, requires particular attention as pieces can be deceptive following the pictograms instructions.
Model of David included what’s not to like.
