Click on the images above for larger pictures.
The VK4502 (P) Hintern was an experimental tank based on the earlier VK 4502(P), but mounting the 8.8cm L/71 gun on a much modified hull. Two versions were proposed with turrets to the front (vorne), or to the rear (hinten). However, only the former was proceeded with, and the construction of three prototypes was underway by February 1943. The turret and guns were designed by Krupp, the distinctively shaped 'P2-Turm' turrets which were designed for these vehicles have since been called 'Porsche' turrets. Following cancellation of the project these turrets were mounted on the first 50 Kingtiger tanks.
The model has been built with resin stowage, airbrushed and weathered in a late war "Octopus" camouflage paint scheme to an excellent standard to represent a “what if ?” tank.
