Late Tiger 1 Ausf.E/s.H.Pz Abteilung 504

Post by phil fitzpatrick » Sun Jun 10, 2012 5:15 pm

Hi everyone
Decided on the subject for my Late Tiger 1 Ausf.E.

A Tiger from the Schwere Heeres Panzer Abteilung 504.
After its reconstruction late 1943 and re construction from the remnants
of the s.H.Pz.Abt 504 and elements of s.H.Pz.Abt 18,in Wezep training gropund
Holland before being ordered to Italy arriving June 1944.

A nice suuny day for a change to open the big heavy box containg the
Heavy Metal and spend some time cleaning the lower hull parts and a
bit more studdying of my books.

Its a good job my patio table's glass top is well supported :D

Thanks Nick :)
Now that my Son has collected the kids pet rabbits after there soaking in Wales,
I can work in the garage now.
But the bit of sun today was worth taking advantage of unpacking and cleaning.
I thought the meths had gone down a bit quick :oops:
Cheers
Phil

Hello Phil, I have replied to your PM. You really are fond of these tanks. I will, of course, be following your tiger build. This damp weather is a nuisance. We are hoping to display the Comet this weekend, at Welshpool Air Show. I am paranoid about getting the Comet wet or dirty :roll:
Enjoy the Tiger......Mick
