1000 piece 350mm PzKpfw VI Ausf.B "Konigstiger" by COBI.
The awesome Tiger II brick model is entirely designed with over 1,000 COBI building blocks. It has many moving elements such as: openable hatches, movable gun barrel, rotating wheels and tracks. Exclusive to this model is the MAYBACH HL230 P30 engine, which can be placed next to the tank on a special stand featuring the name of the drive unit. The engine can also be placed inside the model under service flaps that can be opened! Having 1000 pieces in the set allowed us to create a realistic model faithfully reflecting the characteristic body of the original. The tank has also been covered with high-quality prints that do not scratch or smudge even during heavy use.
Includes 2 figures.
A very accurate model, well made, excellent logical instructions with clear pictures, well packaged and fits together beautifully.
Easily a match for any other European manufacturers of interlocking plastic bricks.
Great addition to many recent obsession with these newer Cobi tank sets. Shipping was about 2 week to Canada (Summer months).
Looks great, very detailed, tanks move without effort. Thoroughly enjoyed building this set.
Only 2 reasons I am giving it a 4/5 (4.5/5 if I could) is
-there is a few pieces could be attached more sturdily, like the turret mounted track links or the back 'mud guards'. but that's minor when it will be more of a display piece.
-The scale compared to the Tiger I Ausf. E . I feels like the Tiger I is bigger. Possibly due to the I's boxy shape and bricks tracks being less wide making the tank look wider. The II's dimension actually wider and longer. The tracks are also wider, but more inward making the hull seem less wide... Also the armor angling of the Tiger II as well. But this still looks great. You won't be disappointed.
Being from the states I've never even heard of Cobi before, but from my experience with this kit I can say its of high quality. The instructions were detailed and consisted of simple no nonsense pictures that made assembling this tank a breeze.
And let's not forget its the mighty, nearly impervious, big gunned, terror inspiring boondoggle that is the Tiger II, my favorite German panzer.
My son thoroughly enjoyed building this set and loved the smooth movement of the treads. Great instructions as always
Had a good time leisurely building. Excellent instructions.
