Panzerkampfwagen VI Tiger Ausf.E . Here is my LDD Tiger 1 model. It is built to minifig scale. You can find my updated version here: http://www.mocpages.com/moc.php/383147. You can find html building instructions of the revised version for sale (at a modest price) on my Etsy site: www.etsy.com/ca/shop/KurtsMOCs. . The Tiger I was a heavy Wehrmacht tank, built in response to the Soviet's T-34 and KV-1. It weighed in at 57 tons and was introduced in 1942. Over 1,300 were built before the end of the war. The Tiger I was the first tank to carry the impressive KwK 36 L/56 88mm gun. This devastating gun was extremely accurate due in part to its high muzzle velocity, very flat trajectory, and Leitz Turmzielfernrohr TZF 9b gun sight. The Tiger I was notoriously over-engineered, making it expensive to produce and maintain. Although it was a significant design and technical achievement, its practicality in the field was less than ideal. The tank used a Maybach HL230 P45 V12 gasoline engine that was good for 690 hp and a top speed of 38 kph. The engine drove the front sprockets. The massive engine was a real fuel hog. Its size and track width made it difficult to transport. Roads, bridges, and trains had difficulty dealing with this massive machine. The Tiger had frontal hull armour of 100m and frontal turret armour of 120mm. The armour plates were mostly flat but interlocked, which made it very resilient. Only very large calibre guns were able to breach its armour. The Tiger I was designed as an offensive tank but the need for defensive strategies later in the war took the tank out of its natural element. When used in its natural offensive capacity, Tiger units racked up impressive kill ratios, sometimes exceeding 10:1. The Tiger I has always been a sentimental favourite of mine. I was glad to finally make a model of it.
