NOR069 German Tiger I, 1st Co 101st Heavy Panzer Battalion
  
FIRST LEGION EXCLUSIVE, ONLY AVAILABLE DIRECT FROM FIRST LEGION

First Legion is extremely pleased to present another variant of our Tiger Tank for the battle of Normandy, set NOR069 Tiger I "123", again from the 101st Heavy Panzer Battalion, but this time from the 1st Company.   The Panzerkampfwagen VI Tiger Ausf. E mounted the very high powered 8.8cm KwK 36 main armament which had a flat trajectory owing to the high muzzle velocity making it extremely accurate at very long ranges.   With 100mm of frontal armor it was difficult for allied guns to penetrate.   This tank remained in production until August 1944 when it was replaced by the Tiger II.   Given its combat history, the "Tiger" is one of the most iconic tanks of the second world war.    The second variant of the Tiger is meant to complement the first in multi-tank displays.   As such, it shares the same basic coloring and camo pattern, however the painting on it is totally unique in that the application of the pattern is completely new and different than the previous NOR068 Tiger.  So it is not simply a new Turret Number, but is an entirely new painted vehicle that used a 2nd painted master as the basis for it.   Further, this model is only available directly from First Legion and this allows us to offer it at a wonderful price!   
 





The model is made from a mixed media (resin, metal, plastic, brass,  photo etch, etc...) and has the following features:
- Opening & Closing Commander's Cupola
- Opening & Closing Turret Loader's Hatch
- Custom Chain2 and 2 x Removeable Bucket Stowage
- Fully Rotating Turret
- Gun Raises/Lowers
- Antenna
- Extremely realistic weathering and superb sculpting and painting (different than NOR068!)
- Realistic Stowage 
- Damaged Fenders
