The Kingtiger was a formidable German tank weighing 69.8 tons. Entering production in mid-1944, it was armed with an 8.8cm KwK 43 L/71 gun and its frontal armor was up to 180mm thick.
What sets this anniversary kit apart is the pre-injected zimmerit coating on the upper hull and turret of the Henschel Production model. Indeed, this is the first ever 1/35 scale model kit to feature this patented coating, which has been carefully and realistically crafted and textured to scale. Zimmerit is a unique characteristic on many German tanks, and instead of having to mess and fiddle around with putty, many modelers have stated a preference for having it pre-molded on their kits. Now Dragon meets their needs with this anniversary kit, allowing modelers to concentrate on assembling the exquisite detail found on this German tank. This kit is the product of advanced technology from earlier high-quality Kingtiger releases, and it also includes multi-media items such as an aluminum gun barrel and metal tow cables.
