Tiger 131 (#2801 )
Well, it happened. We can finally say the 1:12 scale German Tiger 131 based on the iconic tank in the Bovington Tank Museum is a reality. It is here. It is huge. It is EXTREMELY detailed, and it is the most impressive set we at COBI have ever produced. The set (#2801) of the PzKpfw Tiger “131” Panzer VI tank in the all-new 1:12 scale comes on the heels of other bar-raising sets, both in terms of size and detail, like the Bismarck way back in 2018, and even the PT-109 which brought COBI into the realm 3000-plus piece collector sets. But the release of the TIGER 131 in the newest scale represents a brand-new level of design sophistication and detail for COBI, as well as creating a new benchmark for signature sets. With 8000+ pieces, the measurables of this set alone put it in a class all by itself. When assembled the Tiger 131 is nearly 28-inches long and weighs in at a staggering 13 pounds. That alone would make for an impressive build and display piece, but the new 1:12 Tiger also takes it to another level with its intricate interior and exterior design, all-new pieces and brand-new functionalities. To start with, the interior of the tank is detailed in every section of the tank, down to the rounds for the main gun, dials, switches and knobs and even an incredibly photo-realistic engine. The exterior, too, raises the bar for the accuracy of proportions and details that only a set of this size can provide. The set also includes a large number of all-new pieces and features articulations and moving parts never seen before in any of our sets. And while we at COBI have done similar for other tanks (particularly in the 1:28 scale) the TIGER “131” represents a new pinnacle of design, photo-realism and sheer awe-inspiring size and precision.

Removable motor. Access to the interior. Scale 1:12. Model dimensions (L x W x H): 70cm (27.6") x 30cm (11.8") 24cm (9.4")
Concorde is a supersonic passenger aircraft. It was an idea by companies operating both from France and the United Kingdom to offer supersonic flight. It first flew in 1969. Seven years later, it was put into service which lasted 27 years. It flew mostly on transatlantic routes. From London's Heathrow (British Airways) and the Paris port of Charles de Gaulle (Air France) to JFK Airports in New York and Dulles in Washington. It reached record speeds; the flight lasted half the time as traditional aircraft. Due to the high production costs and expensive operation, only 20 planes were produced. Concorde's last flight took place on November 26, 2003. COBI have produced the Concorde G-BBDG supersonic passenger aircraft, which was a test model for British Airways. For several years it was used on test flights & never entered service. Over time, it began to be used as a base of spare parts for the other craft that were in service.
