Base Kit: Revell 1/72 King Tiger
The Tiger II Ausf.B, Konigstiger, King Tiger or Royal Tiger, as it was called depending where you were from, was the most powerful tank produced by the Germans. It became operational in July 1944, during the Invasion of Normandy. This formidable tank fought on the Western and Eastern Fronts until the end of World War II.
Hauler is located in the Czech Republic, and produces high quality photo-etched sets for AFVs, aircraft, cars, railway vehicles and resin accessories for dioramas and resin kits.
This set fits the 1/72 scale Revell Tiger II kit, and comes nicely packaged with the two photo etch frets inside individual clear plastic bag. The instructions are folded and everything is stapled to the folded over cardboard backing.
Detailed and fairly clear instructions are shown pictorially on the front and back of a small sheet. Semi circles and arrows are shown that indicate how to fold parts. These are little confusing initially, but after further study, they made sense.
The first photo etch fret contains all the mesh grates over the engine inlets, and should be straight forward to attach.
