SUMMARY
Highs: High quality production focusing on unique offerings of late war King Tigers including IR options of what-if variants.
Lows: Some interior options only partially visible as this kit was also made (by Takom) with full interior versions as well.
Verdict: Excellent mold and design features on a cutting edge release. Add in Mig paint schemes and after market options for the full effect.

About Jim Starkweather (staff_Jim)
FROM: NEW HAMPSHIRE, UNITED STATES

I started building models in 1971 when I was 6. My first model was a 1/32 P-40 Warhawk. Revell I believe. From there I moved onto the standard cars, Apollo spacecraft, and other kid orientated kits. I don't know what got me started on Armor. I must have seen a Monogram tank kit one day and said "Mom...

So it's a TAKOM kit right?

Why pay extra for Mig Jimenez' "branding"?
JUN 19, 2017 - 09:58 PM
Good question, but I'm pretty sure that there are enough people out there that will do this... just because of the brand. If I have to find a reason, I'll say that the "what-if 1945 features" might be interesting -accuracy aside-

Would love to see Takom release this kit with interior included.I would buy one.Always wanted a July 1945 Kingtiger.

Oh Boy another tiger !

If you want the July 45 version with the revised engine deck this is about the only game in town.Since it has Takom origins I hope Takom releases their own version with interior. Up till now Trumpeter E75 was the closest to the July 45 version in kit form.

Nice in box review and some great close-up photos of the parts. I'm really looking forward to doing the build review of this kit

CMD turret can't be accurate, the new rangefinder would collide with loaders periscope in it. And by simple trigonometry, you cannot win the claimed necessary 4,5 cm at that spot by moving the middle plate edge that little forward. Actually there is space enough above the recoil cylinders even at full depression in the normal turret for the stereoscopic rangefinder, just build any interior available and look or look at the pictures from Patton museum example with the cutouts. It is all wild guessing and any variant that is technically possible can be built safely, as we speak about a hypothetical vehicle. If an unaltered turret suits, it would be the safest option, so AMMO can be more right thatn wrong.
