Ok Y’all are gonna shoot me soon for my bad puns 🙂 Just wanted to do quick update on my AFV Club Tiger. For those that do not know my tale of modeling woe, I retired from the US Navy about 3 years ago. The good news? The Government relocates you for free!!!! The bad news? Well they use the lowest bidder. A good portion of my model collection was damaged or destroyed, despite me having personally packed them. Ah well, more room to build right 🙂 Amongst the kits damaged were two Dragon Tigers. So I hung on to them for parts, which I am now using on the less detailed AFV kit! So here is the AFV club kit with some Dragon donor parts and some random Aber and Dragon photo etch, but I must add I do like the AFV engine screens better than Dragon. Also note the rear plate zimmerit, and how it does not infringe on the areas the exhaust shields will be! And finally a drop of a nice stout brew from my home state of Oregon and the hometown of my lovely wife and MIGHTY OREGON DUCKS! Eugene, and the wonderful Ninkasi Brewing company Cheers mates!
