SUMMARY
Highs: High quality production focusing on unique offerings of late war King Tigers including IR options of what-if variants.
Lows: Some interior options only partially visible as this kit was also made (by Takom) with full interior versions as well.
Verdict: Excellent mold and design features on a cutting edge release. Add in Mig paint schemes and after market options for the full effect.

About Jim Starkweather (staff_Jim)
FROM: CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES

"Poderoso caballero es Don Dinero" -Powerful gentleman is Mr. Money-, as says the famous poem of Don Francisco de Quevedo (Spanish poet 1580-1645). Sooner or later, almost everyone gives up accuracy or extra-work in exchange of an easier and faster profit...

Would love to see Takom release this kit with interior included.I would buy one.Always wanted a July 1945 Kingtiger.

Oh Boy another tiger !
