The kit's background
Airfix have announced this kit but have not yet released full information about its contents. The artwork reveals that it will build the most famous Tiger, number "131" of s.Pz.Abt.504, now restored to running order at Bovington Museum. (But the artwork shows "131" in a sandy desert landscape that the real tank never saw.)
The kit's sprues probably originate in Academy kits such as "Tiger-I Early", but it will perhaps not have an interior. To model "131" accurately, Airfix would have to add a few extra small parts.
The kit has at least two decal options: as well as Tiger "131", the artwork shows Tiger "211" which operated in Sicily. But Airfix depict "211" in a light sand finish, whereas photos show it was painted in the same colours as "131".
