Scale: 1 / 35
The kit's background
This kit builds a Tiger of the February/March/April 1943 version. This kind of Tiger was used on all fronts including Africa and Italy. One example is preserved in Bovington Museum.
The kit's name suggests that it is specific to "Operation Citadel", but really it is not limited to that battle, and Citadel involved Tigers of other versions as well.
The kit's decals are specific to Operation Citadel. However two of the three decal options are for Tigers that this kit cannot build. Aftermarket parts, or decals, would be needed to accurately represent more than one Operation Citadel Tiger.
