Plastic Tiger in Munster

Since last month the German Tank Museum in Munster has a 1:1 plastic model copy of their loaned Tiger that left last autumn. The previously exhibited Tiger is made of the remnants of 6 Tigers and it is the owner’s intent to make it driveable again.

Since the Tiger was such an eye catcher; the museum has invited experts of the camouflage & ambush department of the German Bundeswehr to make a full sized model; to be displayed in the mean time. The results are quite impressive.

The model weighs over 5 tons and is made from fiber glass reinforced plastics. The museum will release a video tomorrow describing the process in more detail.
