Dragon Models 1:35 Armor 61019
Henschel Sd.Kfz.181 Tiger Display Model
German Army 1./sPzAbt 505, #334, Nowe Koszary, 1944

1:35 Scale   Length   Width
Henschel Sd.Kfz.181 Tiger   7.25"   4"

Dragon Armor is proud to announce a magnificent 1/35 scale rendition of a Tiger I from 1./s.Pz.Abt. 505 fighting in Nowe Koszary in 1944. It is a Late Production variant, with such associated features as steel road wheels, updated commander's cupola, and single headlight centrally located in the center of the hull front. The heavy tank unit s.Pz.Abt. 505 was formed in January 1943. It was involved in the titanic tank battle at Kursk and returned to the Eastern Front after being refitted in July 1944. It saw combat in East Prussia in a vain attempt to stem the implacable tide of the Red Army.

This model tank is the result of painstaking craftsmanship, with even minute details carefully recreated. This is the advantage of the larger 1/35 scale, where even the tiniest of items can be shown in glorious detail. The model is topped off with a stunning two-tone paint scheme of green stripes over a yellow base coat. This Tiger I bears the famous "charging knight on horseback" insignia of s.Pz.Abt 505, this insignia being delicately rendered using the pad-painting process. A touch of color is also provided by a band of yellow on the base of the gun tube and the vehicle tactical number "334". The model is expertly finished off with a tasteful level of dry-brushing and weathering, even down to its individual track links. For collectors seeking that something extra, this Tiger I from Dragon Armor will fit the bill!

Henschel Sd.Kfz.181 Tiger

Production of the Tiger began in August 1942, and by August 1944 1,355 of these tanks had been built. The 88mm main gun was the most powerful anti-tank gun in use by any army. The superior mobility of Allied tanks allowed them to attack from behind or from the side in the hope of taking a Tiger down. The influence of Tiger tanks on allied morale grew to almost mythical proportions, and was known as "Tigerphobia." Tigers destroyed tremendous amounts of enemy equipment and often just the sight of a Tiger would induce the Russian tankers to withdraw.

Dragon's 1:35 scale Tiger I tanks are constructed almost entirely of diecast plastic, which allows for the greatest possible level of detail. Each release spotlights an early, mid or late production version with subtle changes such as replacement of the commander's cupola and replacement of the rubber rimmed road wheels with steel wheels. Intricately detailed air intake filters are included for tropical/desert theater releases. This mold features a rotating turret with an elevating spring-loaded recoiling cannon and a moveable forward machine gun. Opening hatches and detailed hull accessories add the finishing touches to a stunningly accurate model.
