Recreate the German King Tiger "Porsche Turret" with a Tamiya 1/35 scale model kit.
During design of the King Tiger, two 88mm gun-toting turret types were developed: the Porsche-produced variant was recognizable by its curved lines; this model accurately captures the form of a Porsche turreted King Tiger, hitting the nail on the head with differences from the competing Henschel ("Production") turret King Tigers, such as the tapered gun barrel and large grille covers.
The model offers a choice of open or closed turret and hull hatches, and succinctly recreates the complex interweaved wheel setup. Belt-type tracks and a commander figure are packaged in the model.
The usual high quality kit that is standard for Tamiya but with the additional challenge of applying your own Zimmerit coating. YouTube has come in handy for tutorials on how to apply home made Zimmerit. As for the rest of the build the instructions are clear and easy to follow. The Tank Museum is just the place to see actual camouflage patterns and an idea of colour.
