Griffon Model King Tiger (Henschel) Mesh and Armor Plate






Dragon and Tamiya kits

Seems like armor fans can't get enough to upgrade their models or make their just a little bit nicer. This particular photo etch set from Griffon Model provides wire mesh, or anti-mine mesh or additional armor plating for the particularly vulnerable engine intake and cooling areas. The set is designed for the 1/35 Tamiya or Dragon King Tiger with the Henschel turret. You get two frets of photo etch and a section of styrene. The instructions are for two sets that differ by one fret, so it should no be difficult to figure out which is for set 007.

The set is superbly etched and will add a lot to your particular build.
