Description

This is an injection-plastic military vehicle model kit.

This model depicts a "hybrid" Sd.Kfz 181 Tiger I of Gruppe Fehrmann. This hybrid Tiger features characteristics of both early and late production Tigers, such as the early-production cupola, driving light locations, and large idler wheels, and the late-production steel road wheels, as well as a lack of zimmerit, also a feature on early production vehicles. Having said all that, it appears to be simply an early production Tiger that has had its rubber-rimmed road wheels replaced with the later steel wheels--and there's your hybrid Tiger!

Dragon's hybrid Tiger kit features excellent molding and detail, with a fret of photo-etched metal detail parts (including pre-formed metal exhaust covers!), braided wire for the tow cables, one-piece flexible "Dragon Styrene" tracks, and markings for one vehicle. The plastic 88mm gun barrel features an open muzzle brake. Also includes a newly tooled spare track arrangement specific to Gruppe Fehrmann.
