It is amazing the amount of delicate detail that can be found on the exterior of the early Tiger I Ausf E.  In 1/72 most of this detail doesn't matter all that much.....but if you are building the big 1/16 Tiger I Ausf E from Tamiya, then all this glorious detail takes on a  whole new perspective and importance.

You will be required to fold the photoetch in this set, but if you have one of the Hold & Fold photo etch benders from The Small Shop, then this will be an easy process.    They have a variety of benders for sharp corners as well as rounded corners and in many different sizes.

The 6 pages of instruction sheets include the usual easy to follow line drawings Aber is famous for.

This detail set is available directly from Hobby Link Japan.
