Dragon has already launched several 1/35 scale kits with molded-on Zimmerit (e.g. Kingtiger, Panther) and these were welcomed with open arms by modelers of all persuasions. The ready-made Zimmerit saved hours of labor for modelers, plus it offered an instant solution to the problem of accurately portraying this unique German anti-magnetic paste. Dragon has added a spectacular new kit to the Zimmerit family, one that has been long awaited and eagerly anticipated...a Tiger I Mid-Production! Furthermore, adding to its appeal, the inspirational box-top artwork comes from the skilled hand of Ron Volstad.
Interestingly, this is also the very first 1/35 scale Tiger I Mid-Production type to appear in a Dragon box. The Tiger I is an iconic tank of WWII, and its legendary status extends well beyond the limited number of 1,355 that were built. Building upon Dragon's masterly 1/35 Tiger kits previously released, this newest big cat comes with a full coating of Zimmerit produced to an extremely high quality in terms of the pattern and scale effect. The unique Zimmerit texture is different to that found on Late Tiger. The kit receives many new parts such as the turret, upper hull, rear plate and road wheels so it can accurately depict a Mid-Production variant. To ease assembly, the tank includes convenient DS tracks. This is truly a masterpiece that blends computerized technology with the touch of a skilled sculptor. This big cat is ready to prowl a diorama scene or to grace a display shelf!
