Notes from our tech department:
This is a 1/35 Plastic German King Tiger Production Turret Tank from Tamiya.
This kit is recommended for age 10 and up.

In order to counter the increasing threat of Russian tanks during the
latter part of the Second World War, Germany began development of a new heavy
tank in February 1943. Officially designated the Panzerkampfwagen VI-B Tiger
II, but better known as the King Tiger, it featured thick armor and a powerful
main gun. Henschel and Porsche, who had prior experiences in the manufacture
of heavy tanks, came up with rival prototypes incorporating different turret
configurations. After trials, the Henschel design was adopted for production.
The King Tiger carried the Type 43 L71, 88mm high velocity main gun which was
capable of penetrating 170mm thick armor plate at a distance of 1000 meters.
