I have added 3 new pages to my website documenting the building of the Tiger I at the Henschel factory. I hope you find the pictures as fascinating as I did.

The new pages start here:

Superb pictures and very interesting commentary. The jig machining of the hull is a very modern concept still used in aircraft production. It would guarranttee interchangeability of components. Having said this in the first photo I still think that the drivers hatch is slightly big and the machinegun port is too high in the plate......!!!!
