Dragon 1/35 King Tiger with full extras and kubelwagen


Ok my GB Entry which I finally get to start tomorrow.  :thumb2:

This tiger will have a tri-tone Camo pattern, highly faded and weathered, although these late tigers would not have seen as much action as earlier tiger 1's it's still getting beat up :thumb1:

This is the Ultimate build of this tank for me (hence why ive spent over £220 on it now) and although its a late king tiger and wouldn't have had zimmerit mine has, late tigers also had a hard edged Camo pattern, mine will be soft edged and most tigers had the turret mg/cupola ring removed for ease of access, mine is present here. I'm not a rivet counter so don't care it's not 100% accurate date wise, I'm basically using artistic licence to build my favourite tank. A late king tiger with zimmeritt and soft edged Camo work.

So the kit and extras all that I'm waiting for is the photo etch, ammo boxes and mg34 belt ammo
