King Tiger Porsche Turret w/Zimmerit, 3./s.Pz.Abt.503, Mailly le Camp, August 1944
The German Army’s s.Pz.Abt. 503 was the first operational unit to receive the impressive new Tiger II in late May 1944. It arrived in Normandy the following month with 12 of these powerful Kingtiger tanks to counter the Allied landings. They first saw action on 11 July 1944. The unit was decimated in the ensuing tough fighting against the Allies, and by the time it was withdrawn from the frontline, s.Pz.Abt. 503 had just two operational tanks remaining. The latest item in the Dragon Armor 1/35 scale series is a Kingtiger from 3./s.Pz.Abt. 503. The miniature represents a Tiger II fighting at Mailly le Camp in France in August 1944.
The most novel aspect of this reproduction is its Porsche turret, the first such Dragon Armor model in this scale to receive one. The distinctively streamlined turret shape lends this model an air of uniqueness. A zimmerit coating has been expertly applied to the hull and turret, and this is most realistic and lifelike in its appearance. The mighty Kingtiger is resplendent in a three-tone camouflage scheme with appropriate tactical markings. Meanwhile, craftsmen have finished it to perfection with a careful layer of weathering and dry-brushing. This model from Dragon Armor is an exciting extension of the 1/35 scale collection, and the sheer size and impact of this heavy tank have been authoritatively captured!
