These videos were made at the Saumur Museum (anybody knows where the hell this is?) where they keep a real King Tiger in working order and in fact drive it around. These clips were my first opportunity to hear the sound of that frightening behemoth.

Cranking up the powerplant (AVI, 1.4MB)
It's alive!!!(AVI, 700 kb)

Both files are from the Tamiya site

P.S.If you are using Windows Media Player and the file fails to open you can right-click and save the target file to your desktop.

The link below is to war-time footage (with sound) of a large number of Pz VIBs together. You can hear the engines very clearly.

Hehe, the Germans must have assembled the Third Reich's entire King Tiger output for your video, but they were masters of propaganda, weren't they...
