King Tiger Henschel Turret w/Zimmerit, 1./s.Pz.Abt.101, France 1944
Weighing 69.8 tons, Germany’s King Tiger tank entered production in mid-1944. It was an impressive vehicle, and being the final tank design to enter production during WWII, it could be seen as the pinnacle of German tank design. The King Tiger was armed with an 8.8cm KwK 43 L/71 gun and its frontal armor was up to 180mm thick. Such a formidable fighting machine had weaknesses though, since its heavy bulk and underpowered engine meant it wasn’t as mobile as it should have been.
Dragon Armor has launched its latest fully built-up 1/35 scale model of a King Tiger Henschel production version which is based on a tank from 1./s.Pz.Abt.101 that fought in France 1944. Dragon’s 1/35 scale tank is distinctive with a full coat of zimmerit on the hull and turret. This copy of the original antimagnetic mine paste has been carefully and realistically crafted and textured to scale. The typical camouflage scheme is well painted, along with tactical markings painted over the zimmerit in a most realistic manner.
