Bovington Tigers, Tiger II (Henschel)

The next in my Bovington Tiger Collection series, the Henschel turreted Tiger II. A particularly handsome beast, this one, in ambush three colour camo' scheme, with zimmerit, and very attractive markings.


This particular tank is done out in the livery of what was do rmerly the 101st SS Heavy Pz battalion, which, on the issue of Tiger II tanks in 1944, was redesignated the 501st. Their cross-keys in a shield over oak leaves is a particularly attractive unit insignia. 


Sooo sexy!

Peek-a-boo! What's inside this hole?

What a magnificent machine.

Below is a video that I enjoyed filming; even if it's not great quality, at least it gives an interesting and unusual view of the 'royal' Tiger.


  1. A marvellous array of photos. A great series of posts for those of us who are many 000s of km away from the place. Thanks.

    1. Thanks James :-) Nice to get that sort of feedback

  2. I painted my Tiger II in the same livery as this one, it looks very mean!
    Thanks for taking such a magnificent group of Pics and Videos for us to enjoy!

    1. You're welcome, and thanks for the positive feedback. I think I'll do mine in this particularly attractive manner as well!
