PzKpfw VI Tiger Ausf, H1 ””Vorpanzer”” Backdate

This item contains the major components necessary to backdate either Dragon Tiger I kit, 6252 or 6600, to the prototype Tiger I with the vorpanzer armor.

Kit Features:

  • Vorpanzer armor and hinge arms
  • New upper glacius plate
  • Original final drive arrangement without additional armor
  • Drive sprockets with aligned bolt detail
  • Separate drive sprocket hubs
  • Hull hatches without periscopes
  • Hull-mounted horn
  • TC’s hatch and cupola with original hatch stop and without lift assist mechanism
  • New rear hull plate with corrected antenna mount
  • Tiger I Upper Hull (Initial) 35-5040

NOTICE: This item is designed as a static display model only. It is not functional. The vorpanzer armor can be built in any position: up, down or any point in between. However, the arms will not function without additional work by the customer.


Instead, I strongly suggest you refer to the excellent build blog on Track-Link by David Coyne. He covers everything better than I could. It even covers a discussion on painting this vehicle.
