Meng Model 1:35 - Sd.Kfz.182 King Tiger Zimmerit Decal - Plastic model kit #SPS-039

Zimmerit was used on WWII German AFVs since 1943 to cover the metal armour of the vehicle to prevent magnetic anti-tank mines from sticking to it. Zimmerit had the consistency of a thick paste or putty that after application was patterned and then hardened with a blow torch. This process usually happened at the factory and the patterns could vary depending on where the vehicle was produced. In the late 1944 Zimmerit was discontinued from application due to concerns that it could catch fire.

These water slide decals have a 3D printed texture to replicate Zimmerit applied to the early Kingtigers. This set is perfect for the Kingtiger Sd.Kfz.182 (Henschel Turret) kit from Meng.
