Hi Guys, My next project will be this RC Armortek King Tiger. I have had the kit in storage for about a year and now that the M26 is out of the way I can finally start on this tank.
So far I have the tank's hull and turret bolted together.
Like all armortek tank kits the tank is all metal. The only polymer components that the kit contains is the rubber bump stops, electrical equipment, and a small hand full of resin detail parts from armorpax. The hull's panels are all bolt together and the hull and turret go up fairly quick.
Like all of their other models all of the tank's armored plates are to scale thickness. The one plate in particular that impressed me the most is the front glacis plate. The plate is solid aluminum and is over an inch thick.
Now that the hull is together I can add the welds and under hull detailing.
This model is going to be the heaviest model that I have ever built. The hull and turret, in it's current empty condition already weighs over 100lbs. Once the tank is up to the suspension I will have to move the tank out of the shop into another location that is easier for me to work on. If I don’t remove the model out of the shop before the suspension is added the tank will be too heavy to get it out of the shop.
