Recreate the German King Tiger from the Ardennes Front with a Tamiya 1/35 scale model kit.
Tamiya presents a 1/35 scale model of the King Tiger as it appeared during the final German offensive on the Ardennes Front. Also included in the kit is the DKW NZ350 military motorcycle. The thick armor and powerful 88mm gun of the King Tiger's Henschel turret struck fear into the hearts of Allied troops that had the displeasure of facing this beast of a tank. In true Tamiya style, the King Tiger's fearsome image is captured in this model.
Overflowing with detail, the kit features two different types of gun mantle (stepped and sloped), as well as parts for the accurate replication of the DKW NZ350's engine. Small headlight and other features seen on the motorcycle during the final stages of World War II are reproduced. Tank commander, tank crewman and orderly figures (3 figures in all) have also been included in this kit.
Great service and fantastic model! I have not made a plastic kit in about 20 years, but have been into miniature wargames and model railways. Therefore, I wanted to go back to models and tanks after my friend got me into Team Yankee! The model is great from Tamiya and easy to follow instructions. Some fiddly parts, but that is with any kit to be fair.
Impressive model when made and the inclusion of courier with motorbike will make for an interesting diorama, which is my intention with this kit.
Would love to buy a Sherman next or maybe a Cromwell. That or a Chieftain!
good fast postage again,model in good condition,would definitely use again.
