Panlos 632016 – King Tiger/Königstiger (Speed Build Review)

Change language to: de_DE Deutsch

Long after the successful Maus, Panlos also brings out a king tiger with plenty of interior design. However, you have to live with a compromise between the level of detail and stability.

Manufacturer: Panlos
Set-Number: 632016
Theme: Military
Release: 2022
Parts: 1974
Figures: 5
Age: 10
Building Time ca.: 4 Hours



The structure of the hull is quite similar to a small building. This is because the entire interior space is used for interior design. This includes a complex engine, the ammunition supply and the cockpit. The rollers are swingingly attached in a pack of three and thus form a kind of suspension. The rest of the hull consists of thin walls that are only attached to a few studs. As with the Maus, this creates a certain degree of instability.

The covers of the hull are also only attached to a few nubs and partly even inserted loosely. This gives quick access to the interior. However, the model is not suitable for playing due to the lack of stability. The turret is also composed of many separately built elements. If you try to take it off again, it quickly collapses.


With this model, Panlos primarily focuses on details and less on stability. In the end you don’t even know where to touch the Tiger. A beautiful, detailed set for the display case, completely unsuitable for playing.
