Hobby Boss 1/16 German Pz.Kpfw. VI Ausf.E Tiger I Model Kit
Brand: Hobby Boss
Model Number: 82601
The Hobby Boss German Pz.Kpfw. VI Ausf.E Tiger I Model Kit in 1/16 scale from the plastic tank model range accurately recreates the real life German heavy tank from World War II.
This Hobby Boss tank model requires paint and glue to complete. This is just one of many great kits from the Hobby Boss plastic models range.
For this model we recommend using paints from the following ranges.
We also highly recommend the following ranges for tools and accessories.
Panzerkampfwagen VI Tiger Ausf.E, often shortened to Tiger. It was an answer to the unexpectedly formidable Soviet armour encountered in the initial months of the Axis invasion of the Soviet Union, particularly the T-34 and the KV-1.
The Tiger I is the first tank mounting the 88 mm gun, in its initial armoured fighting vehicle-dedicated version, which in its Flak version had previously demonstrated its effectiveness against both air and ground targets. During the course of the war, the Tiger I saw combat on all German battlefronts.
It was usually deployed in independent tank battalions, which proved to be quite formidable. While the Tiger I was feared by many of its opponents, it was over-engineered, used expensive and labour intensive materials and production methods, and was time-consuming to produce. Only 1,347 were built between August 1942 and August 1944.

I recently completed the above kit . It is a pity it is plain that this kit was meant for radio control which is a pity because a lot more could be done with it but it still looks the part. Would I buy it again no I would not but it would of been great with a full internals .
