German Heavy Tank Sd.Kfz.182 "King Tiger" (Henschel Turret) Model Kit 1/35Meng
The King Tiger, or Tiger II as it was officially named, was the successor to the equally renowned Tiger I, and combined elements of that tank, but added a sloped hull design reminiscent of the Panther medium tank. It was a real beast of a tank, weighing in at 80 tons, and armed with the infamous 88mm gun. Developed and manufactured by Henschel, the tank entered front line service in 1944, and first saw limited use in the aftermath of the D-Day landings.
