These are the two latest incarnations of Dragon's King Tiger Kits.

DRA6848, 1/35 Sd.Kfz.182 Kingtiger Porsche Turret w/Zimmerit (2 in 1)

DRA6848, 1/35 Sd.Kfz.182 Kingtiger Porsche Turret w/Zimmerit (2 in 1)

DRA6840, 1/35 Sd.Kfz.182 Kingtiger Henschel Production w/Zimmerit s.Pz.Abt.505 Russia 1944 (2 in 1)

DRA6840, 1/35 Sd.Kfz.182 Kingtiger Henschel Production w/Zimmerit s.Pz.Abt.505 Russia 1944 (2 in 1)

The two kits share a lot of parts commonality, so here are some shots of the parts contained in both kits:

Both kits have some nice detail items such as clear parts, a PE fret with grilles and tool clasps and separate metal tow cables.

The Porsche King Tiger (kit 6848) has some nice bits and pieces that are highlighted on the side and back of the kit box.  The kit includes a Pilzen crane as a bonus.

Here's some snapshots of detail parts that caught our attention:

The Henschel Turret kit (6840) also includes some new parts that are highlighted on the box, including two different turret parts:

The right hand turret has a blank spot in the Zimmerit to accommodate the charging knight logo of  Schwere Panzer Abteilung 505 (s.Pz.Abt.505)
