Pz.kpfw VI Tiger sPzAbt 508 Anzio-Nettuno 1944

This article is part of a series:
  1. Pz.kpfw VI Tiger sPzAbt 508 Anzio-Nettuno 1944
  2. KingTiger sPz.Abt.505, Poland 1944, Trumpeter 1/16

Recently I finished my adventure with 1/24 scale planes and started playing with scale tanks. I present my first model on this scale, which I worked on for 3 months. This is Tiger I from Boss Hobby. The model is very impressive, it is 52 cm long and 22 wide. It has a working suspension and tracks. Its biggest drawback is the complete lack of interior, but the details of the suspension and the MG 34 in the turret look really good. I made it in the colors of sPzAbt 508 during the fights at the bridgehead near Anzio in the spring of 1944.

I hope you like it.
