The Tamiya R/C King Tiger Full Option in 1/16 scale is a radio control model tank kit. The fourth full-option radio control kit to make its appearance is the German Heavy Tank King Tiger.

Not only can the remote control model move forward and backward and turn with a great sense of power, but the turret can be rotated and the 88mm gun raised and lowered. To imitate the firing of the main gun and of front machinegun, light flashes while sound is heard.
The sound of the King Tiger engine has been recorded, with the assistance of the French museum of Saumur, from a real Maybach HL230-P30 engine of the only King Tiger kept in working condition in the world.

    Great service from Wonderland Models. The Tank itself is a thing of beauty with great detail but my main thanks goes to Alex at Wonderland Models who built and painted the tank for me and did a great job . Thank you

    Another excellent model of this late-war German tank. Marvellous sound effects including 2 start-up sequences, gun recoils, fully functioning torsion bar suspension, and a well detailed commander figure. Decals and well detailed painting schemes for 4 different units. Optional self-adhesive "zimmerit" sheets are provided - work Ok up to a point but not on the hull machine gun mount, and a lot of the detail disappears after a couple of coats of paint are applied.

    Tamiya 1/16 R/C King Tiger Tank

    For 20 years I have dreamed of building a 1/16 R/C Full Option Tank kit. The Tiger tank has always fascinated me, and as a young boy, the 1/35 scale Tigers were sufficient. Now, as a 61 year old Disabled USN Veteran, The opportunity to purchase a larger kit has arrived. I wasn't sure about ordering this kit from overseas, but decided to chance it with Wonderland Models. I ordered this kit, the correspondence with Wonderland was perfect. The kit arrived within 5 days, (2 days were weekend), and it was in perfect condition. I built it within 7 days. The only problem I had was the kit was missing 17 grub screws from a parts bag. I plan on ordering some replacement screws so I may finish this awesome tank. I will order from Wonderland Models again, (Tamiya shorted me the grub screws, not Wonderland). My most sincere thanks to Wonderland Models for the smooth transaction. Peace
