The only pure copy of Tiger I in the world (page number 131). This vehicle was captured by soldiers of the 48th Royal Tank Regiment (48 RTR, A Squadron, 4 Troop) in Djebel Djaffa on April 21, 1943 during the last month of the campaign in Tunisia (Africa). He is the first Tiger captured intact by British and American troops. He was brought to Tunisia by the Germans between 22 March and 16 April 1943 and was taken into battle with the 48th Royal Tank Regiment near Medjez-el-Bab on 21 April 1943. It destroyed two Churchilles, but a six-pounder shot damaged the turret and wounded the commander. The crew had to leave the tank to save their own lives. The defect is still visible in the yoke and front panels. Completely damaged elements were replaced with parts from other tanks. In October 1943 the vehicle was sent to England. The Tiger 131 is on display at The Tank Museum in Bovington, UK The Tiger I 131 model, made entirely from COBI bricks, was released in conjunction with The Tank Museum in Bovington, UK and faithfully reproduces the original vehicle of which the exhibitors at this facility are proud. The model has opening hatches, turret, grenade launcher, rotating rollers and chains that encourage play.
