1:72 Scale Plastic Model – Panzerjager - Elefant Elephant - Hunting Tiger Tank Destroyer - Length: 4.5" (from back to tip of the gun) Width: 1.75”
This model is entirely made of plastic, this allows for more accurate shapes and details. The model is fully assembled and painted. There is nothing to do other than take it out from the box for display. The tracks are made of rubber and are fitted, however they do not move. The coloring and markings are accurate and realistic.
A small plastic plate is included which displays the model's scale and information.
The maker of the model, Easy Model, really did a good job with the model, the panel lines and details are very clear and crisp. These models have different details engraved such as doors, hatches, panels, lights, ports, antennas, machine guns, ropes, shovels, etc; all of these done with high accuracy and proportion. Moreover the paint scheme is done in a "weathered" style where one can see different shades of darker color along particular panel lines and edges to represent oil stains and/or normal wear
These models come in a very attractive window box and are kept in place by a transparent plastic shell. The model is screwed onto the shell by two screws that need to be removed when taken out of the package for display.
These models are not really toys, they are very fragile and will not break if played with. They are made mainly for display purposes.
The box measures 8 inches long by 3 inches wide by 4 inches high.
The Elefant (German for "elephant") was a heavy tank destroyer used by German Wehrmacht Panzerjäger during World War II. Ninety-one units were built in 1943 under the name Ferdinand, after its designer Ferdinand Porsche, using VK 45.01 (P) tank hulls produced for the Tiger I tank design abandoned in favour of a Henschel design.
In January to April 1944, Ferdinands received modifications and upgrades. They were renamed Elefant in May 1944. The official German designation was Panzerjäger Tiger and the ordnance inventory designation was Sd.Kfz. 184.
