History
Tank # 8, belonged to sPzKP Meyer. Hobby Master has even replicated the unit nickname 'Strolch' which is German for vagabond.Prior to Germany losing Sicily, eight Tiger I's were shipped on July 28, 1943 to supply an independent unit that was headed for Italy. This group was known as "Tigergruppe Meyer", named after it's commander and since at the time it was independent of any other group they took the nickname "Strolch" German for vagabond. In August through November of 1943 the small group of eight Tigers were attached to PzJgAbt. 46. Then again on February 4 1944 the group was renamed Tigergruppe Schwebbach and attached to the LXXVI Panzer Korps which was assigned to attack the Allied landing at Anzio.

Henschel Sd.Kfz.181 Tiger
Production of the Tiger began in August 1942, and by August 1944 1,355 of these tanks had been built. The 88mm main gun was the most powerful anti-tank gun in use by any army. The superior mobility of Allied tanks allowed them to attack from behind or from the side in the hope of taking a Tiger down. The influence of Tiger tanks on allied morale grew to almost mythical proportions, and was known as "Tigerphobia." Tigers destroyed tremendous amounts of enemy equipment and often just the sight of a Tiger would induce the Russian tankers to withdraw.
