The Tiger I is an iconic tank of WWII, and its legendary status extends well beyond the limited number of 1,355 that were built. Armed with an 8.8cm KwK.36 main gun and a pair of MG34 machine guns, this massive tank was fortified with armor up to 110mm thick. Dragon has already launched 1/35 scale kits of the famous and formidable Tiger I tank with molded-on Zimmerit, and these were welcomed with open arms by modelers since it saved hours of labor and offered an instant solution to the problem of accurately portraying this unique German anti-magnetic paste. Dragon has added a spectacular new kit to this big cat’s Zimmerit family, a Tiger I Mid-Production. Most obvious is the stunning new box top art lavishly produced by Mr. Ohnishi, a famous military illustrator from Japan.
The full coating of Zimmerit on the hull and turret is reproduced to an extremely high quality in terms of the pattern and scale effect. To ease assembly, the tank includes convenient DS tracks as well. This is truly a masterpiece that blends computerized technology with the touch of a skilled sculptor. Dragon can confidently say it’s the highest-quality Tiger I available on the market. And with such a beautifully painted box top by Mr. Ohnishi, a famous military illustrator in Japan, this is a must-have for Tiger connoisseurs!
