Customer Review

I want to tell about the wonderful Dragon kit of Porsche Tigers by the company today. More specifically, it is the German heavy Tiger II Ausf. B (Sd. Kfz 182) with Porsche turret. This turret was used only in the first 50 vehicles.
Back to Kit. Even the packaging is all the rage, on the back of all the advantages are illustrated with photographs. The building instructions are printed on high quality paper with color illustrations and easy to understand. The number of items is enormous (about 700), but not all are needed. The unneeded are distinguished in this manual. Unfortunately, the manual has a small mistake, but one can easily fix. The kit includes extensive photo-etched, 3 strands, 4 metal shackle (but without metal studs) with an aluminum gun barrel and the headlight cable as bent wire. This time there is even a (rather primitive) wire antenna, which is not typical for Dragon. The AA-MG missing as usual. All photo-etched to a plastic (less detalliert) shown alternatively. All tools (hammer, wire cutters, spades etc.) separately (which facilitates the painting) or alternatively complete with bracket. Also in the kit are in clear parts, which is not often the case with tank models.
The highlight is the existing filigree Zimmeritdarstellung of turret and hull. For a realistic representation and zeitgenössige the Zimmerit is a must for these vehicles, there was virtually no Porsche-Tiger without the anti-mines-coating.
All parts have a first-class detailing and fit. The chains are available in the form of Magic Tracks as individual members. They should combine already in sections before painting or airbrushing but that makes better.
For the painting, there are a total of 20 color graphics, with four out of six variants unfortunately missing the view from above.
Can be built or painted the following variants:

332 3.Kompanie / sPzAbt 503, Mailly le Camp, the summer of 1944
13 sPzKp (FKL) 316, Panzer Lehr Division, France, June 1944
sPzAbt 506, Arnhem, September 1944
332 Unknown unit, Eastern Front 1944
113 1.Kompanie / sPzAbt 503, Normandy, July 1944
314 (Anneliese) 3.Kompanie / sPzAbt 503 / FHH, Hungary, January 1945

Conclusion: The kit 6302 King Tiger Porsche Turret w / Zimmerit Dragon in my opinion is suitable for the highest craft standards. The degree of difficulty is very high. All parts are very well detailed, worked erstklassisch and are characterized by accurate fit. As most striking advantages I see primarily the individual chain links and the large number of additional parts (photo-etched parts, aluminum gun barrel, steel ropes etc.). Further, the shape of the multi-lingual building instructions is exemplary, though not perfect. Disadvantages are hardly available and negligible that few ambiguities in the assembly instructions are not too large concerns.
