Scale: 1 / 35
The kit's background
This kit is the "Tiger-I Early" from Academy, reboxed. As such, it is already discussed and only the things that Airfix changed shall be explained here.
Airfix discarded Academy's decals and gave this kit two new paint schemes sharing one set of new decals. They supposedly represent the same Tiger at two different times and places; but one of the schemes is fiction and the other one uses the wrong colours.
There is a brief historical summary on the instruction sheet. It says nothing about the Tiger represented by the decals. Instead it tells us that the first use of the first Tigers was unsuccessful.
