Copying the dimensions from a stupid store bought thing is an option if you can't find a set of dimensions. There are many scale models of the Tiger II to choose from.

 

That's probably too much work, though. It's definitely easier to find a pre-made set of drawings or even easier yet, ask the WoT community to find the drawings for you.

yea yea, spending 200+ dollars for a set of measurements for school is clearly an option

I'll see what I can drum up. I have a book of various vehicle designs (One of the Janes series) so it MAY be listed in there.

 

Also, which turret are you planning on doing?  There were two.  One, the early design, used a Porsche turret with a rounded front. It tended to cause shells to bounce into the roof of the driving compartment.  The later Henschell turret was flat faced.

 

 

As I typed this, I did some checking and found these for you. Measurements are in mm.

The above gives overall length (to the muzzle brake,height, and height to the middle of the gun, as well as width of the chassis.

Better dimensional notes.

 

I'll still check through the Janes book and see what I come up with.

You missed this part: There are many scale models of the Tiger II to choose from.

 

Of course, you'd have to do some searching to find one that's cheap enough for you. If it's too much work, let us know and we'll find some links for you.

thanks for the links but how can it be this hard to find measurements of a tank more then 50 years old?! i mean come on, so many models and tanks sitting in the museum but not many measurements found

The only difference between the Porsche turret and the Henshell turret is in the mantlet. You lose about a foot of turret length in the conversion. Still trying to find the book too, but it's apparently buried in the back of a closet.
