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 apparently stated that this kit is compatible with their "Tiger 1 Initial Production", 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.
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 unique turret layout, Initial Tigers had yet another layout, and the Late Tiger was different again. Broadly speaking, the Tiger's interior had five versions. It's not yet clear how well this kit addresses them.
