No worries Phil as I like the Tiger around when I have interested parties about, they always make for interesting conversation lol. I do have the unit cat to paint on the front and the anti freeze drum and tools to paint for you, do you have a photo of the drum in sevice, and would it have been whitewashed?
Ivano, the dimensions of the towing cable/ barrel cleaning mount; they seem to be made of 6 mm square stock, and the working width from front to rear is 46mm (total) 8)

The Antifreeze drum is Armorpax. Maybe Dave Dibb knows the right colours for the drum?

That's a great looking Tiger Phil. One does not see a lot with the winter camo. I'm sure the other Phil will be pleased with it.

Hi Christoffer, yes it was produced using a two part template from one of the U.S. Companies. I thought that I would need to remove the zimmerit to get the detail to show but as you can see it looks just fine if a little new! 8)
