Recreate the German Heavy Tank Tiger I Late Version with a Tamiya 1/35 scale model kit.
At the time of its introduction in 1942, the German Tiger I was the most powerful and sophisticated tank available anywhere in the world, and is still considered a weaponry masterpiece of that era. Most of the Tiger I's were produced by Henschel, a heavy industry manufacturer in Germany.
The later versions of the Tiger I went into production in January 1944, almost two and a half years after its debut. The roadwheels were improved, replacing the rubber rimmed roadwheels with new wheels that ran on steel rims which were insulated from the hub by two rubber rings clamped between disc-shaped pressings. Changes made to the turret were: a commander's cupola with seven vision ports; an anti-aircraft machine gun ring, and a side pivoting hatch; a loader's hatch with periscope; the smoke exhaust outlet relocated to the center of the turret; and internally mounted "S" mine dischargers.
- Shell loading area in the turret as well as hatch undersides have detailed finish.
- Two types of gun barrels and gun mantlets to enable to build the last production variant model.
- One commander figure also included.
