King Tiger Porsche Turret w/Zimmerit, s.Pz.Abt.506, Arnhem 1944
The German tank unit s.Pz.Abt. 506 was formed in July 1943, and by September it was fighting on the Eastern Front along the Dnieper. In August 1944 it was pulled out of combat before being rested and refitted with Tiger II tanks. It was immediately thrust into combat again to counter the bold gamble of the Allies at Arnhem. Later it moved south to defend Achen and its industrial facilities, and by the end of November 1944 its 3rd Kompanie alone had accounted for 222 Allied tanks destroyed!
Dragon Armor is offering a fine new 1/35 scale model of a Kingtiger from s.Pz.Abt. 506 as it appeared during bitter fighting at Arnhem. This model features a Porsche turret, rather than the more common Henschel production turret that was fitted to later tanks. The curvaceous turret lends this Kingtiger a graceful yet purposeful air, and all details on this model are fully represented. Of special note is the delicately rendered coat of zimmerit produced using Dragon’s special patented pre-injection molding techniques. The vehicle is finished in a three-color camouflage scheme that shows to full advantage the powerful and aggressive aspect of this German tank. Dragon’s highest quality engineering and design expertise, plus expert painting and weathering, have resulted in a museum-standard model for avid military collectors.
