My version of the most famous German tank of WW2 era.
Panzerkampfwagen VI Tiger I
About this creation
First, a little about real Pzkpfw VI:
Tiger I was developed and used by German forced during WW2. It was very well armored tank with big, 88 mm gun. Germans used it as backbone for their armored forces.
It was not very fast but it could easily pass trough swamp areas because of its unusually wide tracks.
But, however, it was not the best tank ever. It had many mechanical problems and because of them, they often broke down in the middle of battle.
Also, the production was very expensive and compilcated, so only 1355 Tiger I tanks were built till the end of the war.
Its „little brother“ King Tiger was much more reliable and powerful so it (paritally) replaced Tiger I
Tiger I was always my favorite WW2 tank. And I wanted to build it for a long time.
And now, it has been finally been finished.
I was working on it for a very long time: from May 2011. Since then I have worked on it for almost 35 hours. I have made a lot of changes, had enormous will to put as more detail as I could, but I still wanted it to look very clean and be as much studless as possible.

Interior of the tank
Very accurate, I searched the internet for images and maquetes for hours.
Detail of the interior.
The part on which the cannon and whole turret goes on in the real tank.
wow, this is a really good tiger tank. It looks like you put a good amount of effort into it and its a great result. It dwarfs my little panzer light tank. the interior is great and detailed. nice job. and do you think you might make a T-34 or Sherman?
