1:72 Scale Plastic Model – Tiger II - King Tiger - Bengal Tiger - Length: 5.5" (from back to tip of the gun) Width: 2”
This Tiger 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 Tiger II is a German heavy tank of the Second World War. The final official German designation was Panzerkampfwagen Tiger Ausf. B, often shortened to Tiger B. The ordnance inventory designation was Sd.Kfz. 182. (Sd.Kfz. 267 and 268 for command vehicles). It was also known informally as the Königstiger (German for Bengal tiger and also, literally, "King Tiger"). Contemporaneous Allied soldiers usually called it the King Tiger or Royal Tiger.
