German Tiger I tank
The Tiger I was one of the most powerful tanks in World War II. It had the scary 88 mm gun and was devastating to Allied forces. It relied on brute strength armor (that had almost no weak spots) to protect it. Along with these advantages, it put fear into it's opponents. The Sherman was no match for the Tiger I. It was not until the vast numbers of Sherman tanks overwhelmed the small amount of Tiger tanks that the Sherman tanks could take victory. Despite it's low numbers, the Tiger was still one of the greatest tanks of World War II.
About this creation

So let's start with the front. There is a machine gun port and a driver's view port. On the very front plate of armor are spare tracks.


I'm not sure how other's put their tracks on so I came up with my own little design. I used gas pumps to hold the track pieces.


Both the driver and machine gunner hatches open and mini-figs can sit in.


Here is the Tiger's famous 88mm gun.


The turret can seat a commander and a gunner/loader.


If the roof is removed the stocked ammunition rack can be seen.


The turret ring.


I have seen designs for Tiger tanks where the overlapping wheels were all pulley wheels. I decided to change the inner wheels to gears of the same size. The gears grip the tracks better and fit snug in the groove.


The rear exhaust pipes.


Overhead view.


Demonstrating the Power of the Tiger I against allied forces.

Making this amazing tank is something I've wanted to do since I first learned about it about a year ago. Of course, this being one of my first accurate tanks, it is not completely perfect, but it's a good start for future versions. Please, if you have a moment comment and tell me what you think.

Pretty good, I like the design for the turret, mine had me stumped. The front panel looks incomplete though. Can you check out my Tiger I?

This is one slick tank, I wish I had it for DA, mine is rather pitiful by comparison. I admire you skill with the brick! Cheers.

Very accurate, love the spare tracks! Really, any stick will fit in those holes, not just gas pumps (as seen on my MBT). Very nice!

Quoting Builder Allan Very cool! The shape and size is very close and those details are great. Lots of nice functions too, a brilliant first attempt compared to both of my own attempts at tracked vehicles :-)
Thank you :)
