Revell 1:35 - Sd.Kfz. 184 Tank Hunter "Elefant" - Plastic Model Kit #03254

The Elefant was a heavy tank destroyer produced by the Porsche car company in 1943. The initial version was named "Ferdinand" after its designer Ferdinand Porsche. 

The Ferdinand was modified after its debut in the Battle of Kursk during which a number of flaws were revealed. The improvements mainly concerned the construction of the tank and its armament. The vehicle was supplemented with a commander's cupola and a layer of front armour. Also, it was additionally armed with a MG 34 machine gun and covered with Zimmerit. The advanced model was renamed "Elefant". Officially it was known as Panzerjäger Tiger (P) or Sd.Kfz. 184.

Today one of these vehicles is on show at the Kubinka Tank Museum in Russia, and another belongs to the United States Army Ordnance Museum. These two tanks are the only samples of the series that survived the war.
