    Default King Tiger Tank Part From Normandy.

    Paula the wife bought me this for part of my 50th Birthday. This is a component said to be from the road wheel machinery of a German King Tiger Tank. The part was found with other material on a scrap pile in Normandy area back in 1980. The previous owner had it cleaned and repainted to its former colour. Have to say I was very pleased with it and a few have suggested having it made into a small table. Cheers, Tim.Attachment 822285

    Can't say if it is a piece from a Tiger II but if it is it is from the s Panzer Abt 503 !!

    Thought shall be the harder , heart the keener,
    Courage the greater as our strength faileth.
    Here lies our leader ,in the dust of his greatness.
    Who leaves him now , be damned forever.
    We who are old now shall not leave this Battle,
    But lie at his feet , in the dust with our leader

    Very interesting piece!...
    It's a wasted trip baby. Nobody said nothing about locking horns with no Tigers.

    If it's only part of your 50th birthday present, wait and see if the other part of the pressie is the rest of the tank before converting it to a table

    It looks maybe an axle tube for the drive sprocket.

    I think you nailed it there as you can see this actual part on the King Tiger Tank and when we visited Bovington recently I took some close up photos of the piece as it belongs.
