From Tamiya's "1:16 Big Tank Series", based on the outstanding #56010, Tiger I Ausf. E, Full-Option RC Kit, the German Tiger I Early Production Display Model is among the best kits in large-scale armor modelling.

Even as is, out of the box, Tamiya's detailing is excellent: moveable loader's hatch, choice of early or late production gun mantlets, choice of early or late production air cleaners & exhaust covers. There are three sets of high-quality decals & camouflage pattern/color guidelines for tactical markings in these combat units:

○ Tank No. 131 or No 142, 1 Company, Schwere Panzer Abteilung 504, Tunisia in Spring, 1943
○ Tank No. S33, 8 Company, 2 Panzer Regiment, Russia in Summer, 1942
○ Tank No. II, Schwere Panzer Abteilung 503 HQ, Russia in January, 1943

The copula hatch can be set open or closed, & the kit also includes 2 tank commanders, one each representing soldiers in N. Africa & Russia. Although each figure is the upper torso only, figure models from the 1:16 Scale World Figure Series can make for unique, large-scale dioramas.

The suspension system duplicates the original, incorporating an aluminum inner chassis, die-cast arms, stainless steel torsion plates, AND rubber road wheels to provide balanced weight distribution & effective shock absorption. Intricate tank tracks come pre-assembled for smooth traction & the gearbox unit is easy to install, powered by two R14/C/UM2 batteries (which are not included). The on-off switch is located under chassis rear.

Includes a beautiful carrying bag in black canvas & silver straps, embroidered with the Tamiya 2-star logo & silk-screened with the "crouching tiger" of the schwere Panzer Abteilung 501.
