What is QUICKBUILD? Airfix QUICKBUILD is an exciting range of brick-based models suitable as an introduction to modelling for any age of 6 and up. The pre-coloured pieces simply push together to build an impressive model which can then be decorated with the included self-adhesive stickers.
No paint or glue is needed to make these fantastic models look like the real thing and once completed, there’s no evidence of any of the brick fittings showing. When built they are tough enough to be used as toys, or smart enough to use as display models. Either will show off those great modelling skills! Included with each model is a full set of easy-to-follow colour instructions, free-rolling wheels for cars and tanks and display stands for all the aircraft.
The Tiger I is an excellent choice for someone who wants functionality within a kit. Designed to 1:35 scale, the turret is fully poseable, including moving wheels and tracks, which are also individually linked. Even though the German Panzerkamfwagen VI Tiger heavy tank saw its combat introduction back in September 1942, it is still regarded as the world's most famous tank design to this day.
Possessing a fearsome combination of firepower, armoured protection and mobility, the 88mm gun mounted on the Tiger and its excellent sighting optics allowed it to engage enemy armour at extreme ranges and certainly well outside the range at which they could return fire.
Indeed, during the first Tiger engagements on the Eastern Front, the most likely way that a Tiger would be destroyed was by the hands of its own crew, as they were desperate to avoid the possibility of one of these magnificent machines falling into the hands of the enemy. From the date of its introduction, the Tiger was the tank against which all other tanks would be judged and large numbers of Allied tanks and military vehicles fell to its gun.
