I want to build it using Dragon tiger 1 Kit Number 6600, and the closest body (turret, bins, exhaust, track link, etc) that similar to tiger number 123 as above is tank number 3 as below :

What do you think about it? i dont have many reference on the real pic of tiger number 123, especially picture from above.
Thank you, your suggestion will be appreciated.

Tiger 123 has side skirts. There are none in the kit. They are the 2nd type, which is not included in any kit at present.

Tiger 123 has the Feifel system. The filters are not attached, but the big V duct is surely on the engine hatch. It's not in the Dragon kit.

Tiger 123 has the standard, wide folding mudflaps at the front. Dragon's kit provides the original narrow mudflaps.

Tiger 123 has the standard 32mm diameter tow cable. The ends of the cable are beside the hatches (later Tigers had them moved back a little). Dragon's kit does not have this cable or the corresponding cable holders.

In summary; this kit is close but no kit is really suitable for Tiger 123.
