BB007 German Tiger I, 3rd Co 301st Heavy Panzer Battalion
First Legion is extremely pleased to present a second winter rendition of the Tiger I, set BB007 Tiger “313” from the 3rd Company, 301st Heavy Tank Battalion. The Panzerkampfwagen VI Tiger Ausf. E mounted the very high powered 8.8cm KwK 36 main armament which had a flat trajectory owing to the high muzzle velocity making it extremely accurate at very long ranges. With 100mm of frontal armor it was difficult for allied guns to penetrate. This tank remained in production until August 1944 when it was replaced by the Tiger II. Given its combat history, the “Tiger” is one of the most iconic tanks of World War II.
This variant of the Winter Tiger has been heavily kitted out with additional detail and stowage including jerry cans which are realistically secured to the hull deck, rear turret storage, various bags and equipment making it the most detailed variant of all of the Tigers First Legion has produced to this point.
The model is made from a mixed media (resin, metal, plastic, brass, photo etch, etc…) and has the following features:
– Opening & Closing Commander’s Cupola
– Opening & Closing Turret Loader’s Hatch
– Well Kitted out with Various Stowage
– Fully Rotating Turret
– Gun Raises/Lowers
– Detailed Interior Turret Hatches
