The kit's background
This kit from Rye Field Model has been announced but not yet displayed. At this time we can only make deductions from what we know about this and their other Tiger kits.
After releasing two Tiger kits that include interiors, it seems that RFM have taken note of customer feedback. This kit contains parts for the interior only, and is an optional enhancement to other RFM Tiger kits that don't have an interior. The customer therefore has the option of paying for an interior or not.
RFM have stated that this kit is compatible with their "Tiger 1 Gruppe Fehrmann", their "Bergepanzer Tiger 1", their "Tiger 1 Late Production" and their forthcoming "Early Tiger". In other words, all of their existing hollow Tiger kits except for their first one, the "Initial Production".
There are concerns about the accuracy of this set. The Tiger 1 had many internal changes throughout its production run. While Rye Field put an impressively accurate interior in their "Eastern Front Tiger", the interior in their "Mid Tiger" did not exactly match the version.
Mid Tigers of Summer 1943 had a distinct turret layout, and the Late Tiger was different again. We can broadly say that the standard Tiger had five interior versions. It's not yet clear how well this kit addresses them.
