Hi All,
I have just seen the Facebook item about the work-up for the forthcoming late Tiger 1 release. It seems Armortek have opted for a re-release rather than a re-design. I think it is a shame they have not opted to re-tool the model to accept the new resilient wheels that are a welcome feature of the latest King Tiger kit and the Jadgtiger kit. I suppose a re-release of the Panther G (with the option to model Fgst.Nr. 121032 to 121055) may also be too much to hope for?

Alastair

A few years ago my wife had 25 tons of sand delivered to make me a tank driving area. We added some rocks then last year Mike Duncombe gave me one of his bridges he'd built so we installed that also.

Over the winters the sand had settled so my wife again ordered us 8 tons of sand and it was delivered yesterday. I've been spreading it some and raking it out and then thought: 'Wouldn't it be PERFECT IF I had a 1/6 scale Armortek dozer to help spread this out right now!'

I dump the buckets of sand around then SPREAD it out with a bulldozer! WOW!! Wouldn't THAT would be GREAT!!! Just say'in...

My wife bought me several tins of paint, paint brushes, cleaning materials, a built in wardrobe invoice, (for her) another build it yourself wardrobe (for her) and a couple of invoices for new carpets!
A good wife, saying to me "it's too cold to work in the garage (workshop) at your age", "get up stairs and sort out the bedrooms in the warmth." :cry:

It's sunny and HOT today so I spread a few more buckets of sand then made a Command Decision that a cool garage and COLD cans of 'adult libations' was better! You know what they say about 'Mad Dogs and...' something else in the noon day sun... I forget the phrase...

But Adrian mentioned having tanks in the pictures so I drove'em out and tore up some sand. A DOZER sure would come in handy!! :D

Maybe a subtle hint from her that his next Armortek model. for her to use, should be a Rolls Royce ;)
