The kit's background
This kit has an interior and some transparent body panels. It may be a "de luxe" edition of an "Early Tiger" kit that has not yet been announced by Rye Field.
The kit builds an Early Tiger of the period March - May 1943. Its interior is apparently copied from the previous "Eastern Front Tiger" kit without correcting any of its faults. This kit omits the "E" sprue (parts for Initial Tigers) and adds the transparency sprue, while making some small part changes.
The six optional transparent panels comprise the upper faces of the hull and the entire turret shell. They can be mixed with opaque panels as desired. They omit equipment from the inside turret walls to aid visibility.
Decals for two of Michal Wittmann's Tigers are provided. But Tiger "S04", on the box art, cannot be built accurately from the kit.
