Thanks for the excellent photos Dave.

A big thank you to everyone who joined us yesterday, allowing us to put on an excellent display of Armortek and Kompact Kit models, always much admired by the visiting crowds. The museum reported a record number of visitors for Tiger Day approaching 4,000!

It was very nice to have some new faces joining us as well as the standard crew!

My few pics can be seen here on Facebook

Stephen White brought along the Guinness World Record certificate which we were able to formally hand over the to the Museum. Pictures of this to follow.

Hope those who went on to the show at Abingdon had a good day

The 1/1 scale tank is actually the only surviving Mark 1 .... :wink:

Not even 4000 visitors on the day ? That does surprise me.
The Tank Museum here in Germany, for their similar event ( tanks moving in the arena), has for the last two years limited it to 7500 tickets, and they have sold out in advance.
