Micro-scale (approx. 1:70) version of german WWII PzKpfw VI "Tiger"
About this creation
No collection of tanks is complete without this one.
No doubt the most famous German panzer of WWII. Virtually indestructible compared to enemy armor, but alas slow and troublesome compared to the nimble and well-functioning Panzers III and IVīs.
For each Tiger produced in german factories, 4 Panzer IVīs could have been produced.
Even Guderian preferred large swarms of Panzer IVīs than the fewer technically and logistically complicated tigers.
It was rightly referred to as a "mobile pillbox".
But even in spite its many drawbacks it eventually became the very symbol of German panzer; loved by its crews and feared by its enemies.
Quoting Joshua Knox
Hello there. Could you please provide instructions? I will pay for them if necessary. Please advise, as this is by far the most amazing Tiger i have seen!
Hope to hear from you soon!
Thanks! I would love to make money from my Lego-playing, but alas do no have instructions for this one. Seeing as you are already an experienced Lego-builder, you might figure out how it was done, by looking at these additional photos;
Sweet! The turret looks just the tiniest bit akward, and the chasis looks to skinny, but other than that its great! The hatches all apear to be in the right place, altough Im not sure it had an antenna, but all of the extra details on the side and front/back seem to be in place. Over all, I like it! =)
