I made this July 1945 production King Tiger using CMD's excellent resin and metal conversion for the Tamiya King Tiger. Its sort of a paper-Panzer. The Germans had a number of production improvements scheduled to be introduced to King Tiger assembly lines in July, 1945. Some of the sub components had already been built or introduced already when the War ended.
I don't have great pics of the model, but this shows what you get...
CMD provides an all new, complete resin turret with metal gun barrel, new upper hull, and a set of metal Friul final type King Tiger tracks and drive sprocket wheels.
The final King Tiger version was to have a revised engine deck with a larger, three-piece engine hatch versus the smaller one piece hatch. The fan housings were revised. I added the proposed shrapnel shields already tested on the Panther and King Tiger (largely since I did not have any photo-etch screens that would fit the revised engine deck). The shrapnel shields were made from plastic sheet with styrene rod "bolt" heads.
The final turret had stereoscopic range finders, similar to those used in the 1950s on the US M-47 and M-48 Patton tanks. The ring for the turret AA machine gun was deleted, in favor of a simple post mount. This was already in use on the Panther in 1945. Loops for fixing foliage and camo netting were also added to the turret, as on the Panther.
The model was painted with the excellent Gunze Aqueous Hobby Color panzer colors, and the pattern was mased with Tamiya Tape. I used some assorted photo-etch for the tool clips, tow rope brackets, etc. The model was weathered with Mig pigments and the crew is a (nice!) Verlinden set.
