Tiger I going to Fort Benning

Post by Grognard » Wed Aug 22, 2012 10:04 am

Ran across this after a discussion with a fellow modeller. didn't see it on the board.

The Aberdeen Tiger I is going to Fort Benning to be a part of the Armor and Cavalry Museum. Wheatcroft says it was restored to 100% and operational, but due to an request to have it returned early, it was shipped partial unassembled.

That's one big model to put together!

Glad to see vehicles like this of historical value go to a good home to be taken care of
rather than waste away elsewhere in a field , park , garage etc...
