The kit's background
This is a future release, and full information is not yet available. The tracks will apparently be link-and-length with open guide horns. The interior will be only what's visible through the deck grilles.
The version of Tiger is "Early" and the kit calls it "Battle of Kursk", but many different versions of Early Tiger fought at Kursk. Border have released CAD images of optional parts from various dates in a 6 month period. If they correctly handle all the changes over that time, it will be a "first" in the Tiger kit world, where "Early" kits tend to be very specific.
The CAD depicts five different mantlets, including all the major types of that time. Both types of Feifels will be provided. The "wide" turret bin, the "Paderborn" turret bin, and the Panzer 3 bin will be options, all with separate lids. The kit also introduces a new type, where an extension is added to the standard bin.
The kit has a range of external accessories to attach to the tank: "Packages, trunks, ammunition boxes, kettles, buckets, sleepers, helmets, funnels, basins, legs of pigs, air defence identification flag". There will also be barbed wire, typical of s.Pz.Abt.505 Tigers.
The first 1000 units of the kit will include a replica German medal; the Knight's Iron Cross with double swords silver oak leaf.
