Tiger(P), VK4501
Shigeyuki Mizuno

This is the experimental Porsche Tiger(P), VK4501. The base kit is the 1/35 Italeri Tiger(P), plus a Tamiya Tiger I turret, Dragon/Elephant tracks, sprockets, additional armour, and Aber photo-etch. Other items, such as the grills, front and rear traction units, wire cables, periscope guards, etc. were scratchbuilt. The turret ring tower was moved back about 3mm. Reference data came from Dainihonkaiga's "Combat History of the Schwerepanzerjager Abteliung 653".
