1:72 Scale Plastic Model – Tiger I Middle Type - Length: 4.75" (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 I was a German heavy tank of World War II that operated beginning in 1942 in Africa and in the Soviet Union, usually in independent heavy tank battalions. It gave the German Army its first armoured fighting vehicle that mounted the 8.8 cm KwK 36 gun (derived from the 8.8 cm Flak 36). 1,347 were built between August 1942 and August 1944. After August 1944, production of the Tiger I was phased out in favour of the Tiger II.
