Recreate the German Tiger I, Early Production, with a 1/48 scale model kit made by Tamiya. 

It was the end of 1942 when a German heavy tank with extra thick armour and a powerful main gun first appeared on the North African front. The new tank, long-desired by the German soldiers who had hard-fought battles against the allies, became known as the Tiger I Ausf. E. Development of the Tiger I began at the end of May 1941. Mass production started already in August 1942 with little alteration from the prototype. The Tiger I produced from November 1942 to July 1943 featured these modifications, are referred to as the early production. About 200 units of these early production versions were produced.
