Work in progress of my 1/6 late Tiger I I have mainly been working on the turret up to now just have a couple more parts to obtain/make then I can get to work on the chassis.

Parts used so far
Alloy Vent (Turned by a mate)

I thought that it was a Dutch beer. It would appear that you've got more little helpers than Santa Claus, Mr. Rivet. :wink:

Beer aside, it's coming along nicely Rivet! What sort of colour scheme are you going to go for? Something unusual?

I'm a bit confused again. I understood from Mr. Rivet that it was his turn to make the meal this evening. So does that mean that he serves it up in his workshop, his Tiger's in the kitchen or he's just telling porkies. :lol:

Question how many rivets in a Tiger I stowage bin? :shock:
Answer in a few days :roll:

I cook 7 night’s a week the last time I let the wife in there it took 2 days to clean up after her, she managed to use every pan, knife, fork and spoon in the house good job we only had beans on toast.

That's a cross you have to bear when you are a perfectionist Mr. Rivet.
As for the rivets on the Tiger bins, it's a pity the tanks aren't like the railways--some tenders had rivets and some didn't---catered for all tastes. :roll:
Don't fall into the same trap as a gentleman I met. He was visiting his son in married quarters and had just taken delivery of a very nice, new car---4.2 Jaguar. The old guy was in the driving seat, crying like a baby---he said that now he had it, he was too old to drive it. There's a lot to be said for a little compromise at times.
During a show at Wantage, a man asked why we were interested in tanks because as far as he was concerned they were dirty, horrible, noisy, smelly things. When I asked him if he knew anything about tanks, he invited the members of the UKTC to visit his place--SHRIVENHAM!!! :shock:
It takes all sorts. 8)
