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

During World War II, the German tank that was designated the
Panzerkampfwagen VI-B Tiger II, or more commonly know as the "King Tiger" was a
much feared weapon by Allied Forces, because of its powerful 88mm main gun and
thick armor plate. Germany began development of this tank in February 1943, in
order to counter the increasing threat of Russian tanks. During its
development stage, both the Henschel and Porsche firms introduced rival
prototypes that incorporated different turret configurations. The Porsche
designed turret had a very distinctive shape, with a rounded front section and
narrow shell, when compared to the rather angular Henschel offering.
