This is an injection-plastic military vehicle model kit.
The Elefant is a German heavy tank destroyer of World War II, with its long-barreled 71-caliber 8.8cm gun and heavy armor reaching up to 200mm in thickness. Developed by Dr. Porsche for the Tiger tank, the body that was rejected in a prototype competition with Henschel was newly equipped with a fixed battle compartment and a PaK43/2 71-caliber 8.8cm tank gun. It was also characterized by adopting a drive system with a unique mechanism called the "engine power regeneration motor drive system." Ninety of the Elefant were built from March to May 1943, using the body prepared at the time of the competition prototype. It was immediately introduced to the Kursk battle that was held with the Soviet Union in July, and demonstrated its power. Although it suffered when confronted with obstacles due to its unique system and had a lack of mobility due to its weight, it continued to fight bravely until the end of the war, including being dispatched to the defense of Berlin.
This model kit from Dragon has a large fixed fighting compartment at the rear of the hull, and is equipped with a long-barreled 8.8cm gun made from aluminum. The lower part of the hull and the battle room are each made in one piece to reproduce the Elefant's unique shape, and the suspension unit also firmly expresses the unique form of the Porsche type. A Magic Track is provided for the track. The left and right fender parts are accented with photo-etched parts that express the tread pattern on the surface in three dimensions, and photo-etched parts are also included for the Zimmerit coating applied to the hull. The battle room can be assembled with the commander's hatch opened or closed, and high-quality decals by Cartograf are included too. Order yours today!
