Scale: 1/48

This four-part model kit represents the left and right radiators and their associated fans and ducts of the Tiger I German heavy tank.  The scaled dimensions match measurements made by expert Tiger I historian and researcher David Byrden.  This model is intended to detail the engine compartments of various 1/48 scale Tiger I kits.  It is not designed to match any specific kit.  Depending on which Tiger I kit you have, some adjustment to your kit's plastic parts may be necessary for best fit.  


  • designed from measurements of the preserved radiators, fans and ducts of a surviving, fully restored and operational Tiger I preserved at the Bovington Museum in the United Kingdom
  • cap details are specific to the left and right radiator
  • radiators have subtle "L" and "R" markings on the bottoms to indicate which is the left radiator and which is the right radiator

Painting guide:

  • left radiator = interior blue-gray
  • right radiator = black
  • fans and their associated ducts = natural metal (silver)
  • inlet ramp = primer red

These parts are made of acrylic plastic.  Acrylic plastic does not behave like injection-molded polystyrene plastic or other resins.  Glues for polystyrene plastic, like "Testors Liquid Cement" or tube cement, will not work with acrylic plastic.  Cyanoacrylate (CA) "super glue" is recommended.
