Re: Re-release of the King Tiger - End 2019

Hi Mike,

I got them from a friend, you owns a tool maker shop. They are heavy duty stainless steel bearings. Not cheap, but worth every penny. I installed them on all my older (pre lazy suzan) AT tanks (Tiger 1, KT, Panther).

Cheers

Re: In memory of Gill Watkins

"And, in the end,
the love you take
is equal to the love you make."

Chris, very fitting words!
And yes, Mark´s farewell speach to Gill was awesome and inspiring!
It revived Gill´s life and legacy!

My Sympathy is with Mark and his Family.

R. I. P.
Gill

Very sincerely
