I dont know who they were made by, but a credit to whoever. http://i306.photobucket.com/albums/nn254/geubes/...

for anyones interest, who may "still" be building a tiger. the tiger is virtually complete, minus the electrics. Just waiting for a tow-hitch modification. Also i have included a photo of the early tiger hull fillets, cut and reworked by steve winstone. http://i306.photobucket.com/albums/nn254/geube...
