Holy King Tigers Batman!

Dragon USA just dropped us a line. Their update included news of a revised King Tiger from Dragon and three from Takom. It looks like the Takom kits will have full interiors and zimmerit too! The last item will definitely entice German rare armor fans- the Hetzer with the 15cm sIG33.

DRA6840, Sd.Kfz.182 Kingtiger Henschel Production w/Zimmerit s.Pz.Abt.505 Russia 1944

Available September 2016. Click on the pic for more info.

What sets this 1/35 scale kit apart is the pre-injected Zimmerit coating on the upper hull and turret. Of course, the kit perfectly mimics the original Kingtigers of s.Pz.Abt.505 in that there are rectangles on the turret where there is no Zimmerit to allow the unit insignia to be painted on. No one does Zimmerit better than Dragon, with the texture carefully and realistically crafted 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. Of course, the famous insignia is included as high-quality decals. As a special bonus, Dragon also placed in the box a second turret with a completely normal Zimmerit coating, thus giving modelers even more choices to build a regular Kingtiger. This kit will have modelers charging down to their model shops to see and buy it for themselves!

This new 1/35 scale kit is phenomenally detailed. It is far more than just a hybrid of Dragon’s Hetzer chassis and s.IG.33/2 howitzer, for this kit required numerous new parts to pull off a realistic depiction of this vehicle. The kit has a brand new upper hull, superstructure, fighting compartment, idler wheel, storage bin and associated interior detail such as ammunition racks. Furthermore, two options are available to fit out the aft of the fighting compartment. At the rear is a new exhaust and muffler, which comes with a photo-etched guard. This self-propelled howitzer has hitherto never been available in plastic, so Dragon’s creation makes yet another Hetzer variant readily obtainable by all. As well as the regular Hetzer tank destroyer already offered by Dragon, modelers can now add this support vehicle with heavy 15cm gun to their collections.
