PzKpfw VI Ausf. H 'Tiger I' SdKfz 181

Post by PhiMa on Sat Dec 18, 2010 10:35 pm

THE german heavy tank armed with an 8.8cm KwK and up to 120mm armour produced and used during WWII. It was dreaded by almost any allied tanker, seeing as it's primary armament could shoot further than pretty much anything and allied shells just bounced off of the armour. It was the answer to unexpected Soviet armour but due to expensive and labour intensive production as well as material and time consuming, only 1,347 were built.


My model Smile Some credit to Pigletciamek and Justsuper9. It features a rotatable turret, suspension (other picture), moveable gun and opening hatches at the front. The 'roof' is also removable and I may think about adding an interior.

Working Suspension!


The back end (It reached explore frontpage on flickr. Razz )



...And some allied firepower to take on such a beast Smile (That is, once the second one's finished Razz )


Enjoy! I personally find this is some of my best work to date.

I'll explain it quickly. That's basically it's official name, and the Tiger is just the nickname

PzKpfw VI= Panzerkampfwagen (Armoured fighting vehicle) Six (After 5 other models, Panzer I-IV and the Panther)
Ausf. H = Ausführung H (Model H/ Mark VIII in British spelling)
Tiger 'I' because there was also a Tiger II
and SdKfz = Sonderkraftfahrzeug (Special vehicle, all military vehicles in germany had a SdKfz number, to keep things organized Smile)

Hope this helps. Thanks!

Wow! This is really nice... It has a very confusing name, but it makes sense to have all those letters and such...

Great Job. This is my favorite and I think one of your bests. I think you specialize more on the Germans, I just like them better. Your others are still great. Looks like you put a lot of effort into it and would love to see an interior.

Very high quality! Liking the attention to detail all around, really nice bullet stickers on the turret! Smooth so as to be realistic! Great work!
