Features - Slide-molded one-piece Porsche turret with a pre-injected zimmerit coating - Upper and lower hull come with realistically scaled zimmerit - Slide-molded muzzle brake - Photo-etched parts to upgrade details - One-piece DS tracks - Cartograf Decal offers accurate markings

Dragon’s latest 1/72 scale King Tiger with Porsche turret has just been announced. It is the first ever to feature a pre-molded zimmerit coating. Zimmerit was an anti-magnetic paste applied to many armored vehicles to prevent enemy soldiers from attaching magnetic antitank mines. Zimmerit is notoriously difficult to replicate on models, especially so in 1/72 scale, so this fine model kit offers modelers the ideal solution. Using Dragon’s patented injection-molded zimmerit, the hull and turret of the mighty Tiger II tank features an accurately textured zimmerit surface. The kit also features one-piece DS tracks for added modeling convenience. There is also a generous supply of photo-etched components to enhance specific details. To finish their masterpieces, modelers are offered a wide range of high-quality Cartograf decals. All in all, this King Tiger with Porsche turret and zimmerit coating is a very attractive package!

About the King Tiger A total of 489 King Tiger tanks were produced between January 1944 and March 1945. The first 50 tanks were fitted with a turret manufactured by Porsche that was originally intended for the VK4502(P). Unfortunately, these turrets had a rounded front plate, which resulted in a deadly shot-trap. Henschel redesigned the turret and mantlet, and all remaining King Tiger tanks sported this later turret.
