At the turn of the year, Dragon released a scintillating 1/35 scale kit of the famous German panzer ace Michael Wittmann’s “Last Tiger” (Item No. 6800). It was a hot seller, and now it’s being joined by another signature kit depicting a panzer ace. This time a Tiger I Mid-Production kit represents the tank (numbered ‘217’) of Oberleutnant Otto Carius that participated in a short but sharp tank battle in the village of Malinava in Latvia on 22 July 1944. During WWII, Carius accounted for more than 150 enemy tanks.
This Tiger I Mid-Production kit allows modelers to precisely create tank ‘217’ of s.Pz.Abt.502 straight from the box. Components are molded utilizing the very highest level of engineering from Dragon’s experienced team. The plastic kit also includes molded-on Zimmerit to save the modeler time. There’s a generous selection of photo-etched metal parts to enhance details, and Cartograph has prepared high-quality decals for the appropriate set of markings for this battle-tested Tiger I. As the icing on the cake, the box-top artwork is produced by the famed Ron Volstad, ensuring that this kit will be a collectors’ item for many years to come. Set to become another sought-after collectible, this Tiger I Mid-Production kit is unsurpassed in its accuracy and comprehensiveness.
