Pzkpfw VI Tiger
The Pzkpfw VI Tiger. One of the most famous heavy tanks of WW2. Seemingly invincible.
About this creation
This is a model of the famous German Tiger 1 tank which dominated the battlefields of Europe during World War 2.

The Tiger I was armed with powerful 88mm gun (originally developed from 88mm Flak 36 L/56 gun) that made it a very dangerous opponent for any Allied tank, and its thick (but not shot deflecting) armor made it virtually indestructible. Both Sherman with 76mm gun and T-34/85 stood a chance against Tiger only at close range. It is reported that in July of 1944, commander of 3rd company of schwere Panzer Abteilung 506, Captain Wakker, destroyed a Soviet T-34 at the range of 3900 meters. The rule applied by the British concerning the engagement of Tigers was that five Shermans were needed to destroy a single Tiger, but only one Sherman was to return from the engagement. Tiger's only weak spot was its rear armor plate and its engine, which required continuous maintenance. During their combat service, Tigers destroyed large numbers of enemy tanks and other equipment, creating the myth of their invincibility and fearsome power - "Tiger-phobia". Tigers also had tremendous effect on morale of both German and Allied soldiers, German felt secure, while Allies thought that every German tank, especially the late model PzKpfw IV, was a Tiger.

   This model was alot of fun to work on. Though it has been a constant work in progress, I feel the current version best emulates the character and look of the actual tank.

   The turret can traverse the full 360 degrees, and the gun can elevate 30 degrees and depress 5

This has been my favorite tank of WW2 ever since I wraped my inexperienced hands around my first tank book. You have acomplished an excellent build that I am still trying to tinker with. You got these details down pat. Amazing work, very deserving of MOC of the day.
