King Tiger

Italeri's kit (7004) by Marko Mäkinen.

This ex-ESCI kit includes engraved zimmerit (the surface was softened with glue and the pattern pressed with an electrician's screwdriver). Hatch handles, lift rings, headlight cord and spare track holders are made of metal wire. Also the gun mantlet received some detailing. I stayed with the kit's original link-and-length tracks in spite of their crudeness, but I engraved individual link seams and added track guide teeth made of plasticard. The details on the turret roof were left slightly misplaced, however.
