King Tiger Tank (v2)

Post by PhiMa on Mon Feb 22, 2010 3:26 pm

The second edition of the bad-*** tank known as The Tiger II tank, the King Tiger, the Bengal Tiger, Royal tiger, Tiger B and my personal favourite, Königstiger, throughout the world. Armed with an 8.8cm Kampfwagenkanone and protected by 100-180mm thick armour, this 68 metric ton tank packed quite a punch. This is the model with the Henschel/Krupp turret.

Onto the build: I built v1 actually quite a while ago, but after having my friends over and putting it in the corner I noticed how much better I could do with it, so I gave it ground clearence, a lower hull, working hatches that fit full figuers and the reworked turret, which I think turned out great. Inspiration came from Brickmania's latest Panther Tank.

Enjoy! (MG42 by brickarms. NOT for trade.)

Overview:


Closer view of the Henschel/Krupp Turret:


Profile view. Notice the glently sloped side skirts and large use of SNOT on the turret:


Comparison with a VW Kübelwagen Type 82 and Wehrmacht Footsoldier.


With crap-tastic V1 for comparison:

Wow Phima good job, the turret Looks better than the V1 and I love the snot. You are so lucky to have a brickarms MG42. Overall it deserves this completely. :wuzzupbob:

Pure awesomeness... seems I am using often too often now a days. i love this tank! It is a lot better then the first one but I bet if you took another stab at it you would make it even better then the second one!Razz

I didn't see anything wrong with the first one but my untrained eyes wouldn't be a good judge though I do know we are our own most critical judge!Razz

The sides near the treads are a bit studdy, and the overall tank is just maybe a plate or two short. Otherwise a vast improvement from the first.

No. The turret slopes too far, it's too small on both ends.

If I had a physical stamp of approval, I'd give you a stamp of approval. But you'll need to make do with this.

I have to say: One of the best (LEGO) tanks that I've ever seen.

Where did you get the treads from? They are very well used.
