Tiger Porsche heavy tank (RC) 1/18
Yes... Porsche made tanks too!
About this creation
I present my first model as an AFOL, a Tiger porsche or Tiger (P). This vehicle, and the Tiger I (H) (the more commonly known Tiger tank) was built to meet the requirements of a 45 ton vehicle that could mount a 88mm flak inside a krupp turret. Durning the testing of the two vehicles, the Porsche version struggled with teething issues in the electronic drive motors that drive the rear sprockets. This vehicle has an interesting means of propulsion, there are 2 V10 engines that drive generators, that in turn provide power to the rear drive motors. This eliminates strain on a mechanical transmission, and allows for ease of "shifting" between different amounts of power supplied to the rear drive motors. Because of the issues with the over-engineered drivetrain, the vehicle lost the competition, and it was not put into production. There had been a total of 100 hulls built by Porsche, and only 5 Tiger (P)s were finished. This vehicle is one of the few that saw actual combat, the markings of it are from the Panzerjäger Abteilung 653rd.

I got the inspiration for this model from Sariel's Tiger XL, and I decided it would be cool to utilize his turret (like the actual tiger (P) used the same Krupp turret). I have made a couple small changes to the turret, as it was slightly too long, and the sloped portion was too short. The hull of the tank is packed with motors and details, as I replicated the entire engine bay, and that alone takes up at least 1/3 of the entire vehicle. The rest is filled with the 5 motors inside of the model

Lol, when I first saw this, I thought, "Porsche made tanks?" And then I read the first sentence. Great MOC.

Fantastic work, as we have come to expect from you. I like the internal details of the engine bay, as well as some of the exterior details, especially around the gun mantle. It's interesting how far forward the turret was located on this tank -- it looks like it was designed by the Soviets.

Beautiful Tiger P, excellent work as always Tommy! I think Porsche had the right idea with his transmission setup, as it is the setup used in every modern AFV, but German engineering was simply not ready for this setup and this is why the Tiger P failed. Conceptually, it was much better than Henschel's Tiger, with 200mm of frontal armor instead of 100mm (discounting the 80mm corners) and a more advanced setup, especially in the aforementioned transmission.

An awesome example of German heavy metal done in LEGOS by a military master craftsman. Excellent details and design. 10/10. Bravo on a job well done.
