Dragon DRA60405 German Initial Production Sd. Kfz. 181 PzKpfw VI Tiger I Ausf. H1 Heavy Tank - #100, schwere Panzer Abteilung 502, Mishkino, Russia, 1942 (1:72 Scale) "The gun and armor of the Tiger were superb, making it in many ways the most formidable tank in service. Even so, it was poor in maneuver, it was slow, and its turret was a slow traverser in action. It was a tank which was, at its best, immobile in ambush, when its killing power was very frightening."
- Douglas Orgill, "German Armor"

The German Waffenamt issued an order to design the VK4501(H) (as the PzKpfw VI Ausf. E was then known) in May 1941, just one month prior to the commencement of Operation Barbarossa. Interestingly, Henschel und Sohn of Kassel was charged with building the heavily armored chassis while Krupp, by far the largest munitionwerks in Germany, was given the task of developing the turret. The PzKpfw VI Ausfuhrung E (type E) was one of the first German tanks to feature a torsion bar with eight interleaved wheels, which was designed to support the weight of the mammoth 57-ton tank. The Ausf. E mounted a huge 8.8cm KwK36 L/56 cannon and featured two MG34 machine guns for close support against enemy infantry. By war's end, 1,354 vehicles had been produced, some rolling off the Wegmann assembly line.

This particular 1:72 scale replica of an initial production Tiger Ausf. H1 heavy tank served with schwere Panzer Abteilung 502 on the eastern front during 1942. Sold Out!

Reviewer: Donald Odom from Jonesboro, GA United States  
Another fine Dragon Armor model from The Motor Pool.  The Motor Pool is a great source for fine die-cast models from the top manufacturers.  Great service, too.

Reviewer: Stewart Schulze from Silver Spring, MD United States  
I used to think Hobby master made the best 1/72 AFVs, but Dragon just keeps getting better and better. This model has exquisite detailing, tight, high quality assembly, and professional looking weathering and markings. Dragon rules!
