Product description

Recreate a piece of history with this Airfix Tiger 1 Early Version Model Kit.

Production of the Tiger I began in August 1942 at the factory of Henschel und Sohn in Kassel, initially at a rate of 25 per month and peaking in April 1944 at 104 per month. Deployed Tiger Is peaked at 671 on 1 July 1944. It took about twice as long to build a Tiger I as another German tank of the period. When the improved Tiger II began production in January 1944, the Tiger I was soon phased out. Eager to make use of the powerful new weapon, Hitler ordered the vehicle be pressed into service months earlier than had planned.

A platoon of four Tigers went into action on 23rd September 1942 near Leningrad. Operating in swampy, forested terrain, their movement was largely confined to roads and tracks, making defence against them far easier.

This will be perfect for any model-maker's collection, especially those with a keen interest in World War II era tanks, vehicles and aircrafts.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Full internal detail, too! This new Airfix kit is a recast, repackaged Academy item, which is no bad thing. The detail is good inside and out, and the trickiest thing is deciding how to display it; I opted for not fixing the top of the hull to the superstructure, allowing it to be lifted off. This can make painting and weathering the model more difficult but there is advice available online for this.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very good value for the money This new release from Airfix of the early model Tiger tank is, in fact, a reboxed Academy kit, which comes with a fully detailed interior, engine bay, etc. As such, it is a very nice kit, which on first exam appears to be quite accurate, so you can build a Tiger simiilar to the one residing at The Tank Museum, Bovington (which starred in the Brad Pitt film Fury), and if you're brave and skilled enough you can have a fully detailed interior, not that you'll see too much of it. A very nice kit out of the box, and if the interior is too daunting, don't fit it!
