A unique model of a very recognizable and still operational tank. PzKpfw VI Tiger number 131 was captured by the British during the war and is now the biggest attraction of the Bovington Tank Museum!
The COBI block tiger 131 has been reproduced with extreme attention to detail. It has many movable elements such as: opening hatches, movable barrel of the gun and rotating wheels and tracks. The service hatches can be opened to see the brick-built engine mounted inside the vehicle. The advantage of the set consisting of 850 elements is a very solid structure, which faithfully reflects the original shapes of its historical inspiration. The tank is also covered with high-quality prints that do not rub off.
The set includes a COBI fan figure in a characteristic T-shirt with the inscription "COBI FANS" on the back. Any resemblance to the COBI manager is completely coincidental! ;)
The Panzerkampfwagen VI, or the Tiger, was a German heavy tank from the Second World War. Its characteristic shape is still recognizable all over the world. The vehicle itself has become legendary and is still present not only in historical materials, but also in pop culture. The first of the Tigers were delivered to the front near Leningrad and in Tunisia in August / September 1942. The tank designed and manufactured by Henschel was very modern and efficient. Unfortunately its production consumed enormous resources of valuable raw materials and time. The Tiger I tanks and the few Tiger IIs had a significant impact on the course of hostilities. The infamous and spreading terror of the Tigers destroyed over 10,300 Allied tanks and 11,380 guns, with losses of only 1,725 themselves.
