180mm thick armor and powerful 88mm gun of the King Tiger struck fear in the hearts of all

Allied troops that had the misfortune of facing this beast. This kit realistically replicates the

production type tank with angular Henschel turret. The1/48 scale King Tiger is the perfect

centerpiece for a diorama depicting late WWII battles, such as the Ardennes front.

In order to counter the increasing threat of Russian tanks during the latter part of WWII, Germany

began developing a new heavy tank, the King Tiger. The first 50 models featured a Porsche

designed turret, however in mass production runs a Henschel design turret was adopted.

Designed for defense and attack, the King Tiger featured thick 150mm armor on the front and

80mm armor on the sides, and a 88mm L71 high velocity main gun capable of penetrating

170mm thick armor at a distance of 1,000m. Auxiliary armament included two 7.92mm machine

guns mounted on the front hull section and on the turret. The extremely thick armor on the turret

front measured 185mm and 88mm on the side panels.This massive tank was driven by a 700hp

Maybach HL230 P-30 12 cylinder liquid cooled engine.

Detailed 1/48 assembly model kit of the King Tiger (Production Turret).

Separately molded crew hatches can open and close.

Die-cast lower hull adds weight and realism.

Assembly type tracks come with straight parts made of single pieces.

Includes 3 sets of markings.
