Meng has done something comparatively new to accompany their outstanding Porsche-turreted King Tiger model in 1/35th scale, offering a separately-available decal sheet for the zimmerit coating found on so many of these monsters at this stage of the Second World War. 

The decal sheet is certainly comprehensive - providing 3-dimensionally printed decals for literally every surface that might have had this coating on the real beast.  All parts show a remarkable fidelity to the surface they're supposed to cover and have virtually no film to interfere with the edges.  On complicated areas, such as the rear of the hull and turret, multiple decals simplify getting around surface detail.  All tool attachment points and other such extrusions are also left free of film to facilitate gluing.
