Roco Tiger 1. Note two different vehicles.
Another tank composed of parts from two different vehicles. I have purchased many used collections over the decades and often you get bits and parts, rather than different vehicles.
Tiger 1 prototype vehicle. These hulls eventually became the Elephant. A couple of this version served as their battalion command vehicles.
This is a Tiger II that has been converted to an armored recovery vehicle. There is no evidence that such a vehicle was ever built. Still, it's based on similar vehicles built on the Panther chassis.
Vehicles like this could have been built from Tiger II tanks with a damaged turret. It got this partially assembled vehicle in a collection. I added the tow cables, the small cannons, the Jerry cans and other bits. I only have this one, while I think such a vehicle as this is possible, it would have been rare.
