Very interesting! Was this a prototype or just a field mod (referring to stowage bin). Looks great so far, keep it up.

This is a problem with the Dragon kit.

The hull roof is thicker than the real roof, so it collides with the radiator.
The simple solution, is to omit the top of the radiator.

were limited to this unit solely. This was the first unit to recieve the Tiger and she (the Tiger) initially came from the factories with no stowage bins so yes this is a field mod.

The side bins were fitted only to the commander's Tiger, number "100", as far as we know.
These "initial" Tigers - all 9 of them - were originally fitted with the Pz.3 bin. In fact, you can see the remains of metal strips on the back of "100" where this bin used to be.
There is an eyewitness report from Russia stating that this tank got two penetrations on the left of the turret, and the bin on that side was half full of concrete to cover them.
