I don't think he's sneaking up behind him.




Interesting to see how many are missing the road wheel hubs.
I told you photobucket sucks...

Looks like some of them could have been desert brown.

Really like the scheme of the Bovington Tiger...with the acquisition of the half-track, I may actually go the low contrast camo route for the Bergetiger now for a little variation.

:cheer: WOW,

Fantastic library of the African Tigers. I never actually realized there were that many Tigers in this Campaign. Imagine if Rommel had had more of these and Pz IV F & Gs back at Alemain. Many do not realize how close he really was to winning the North African war.The British were burning everything back at headquarters inAlexandria and Cario thinking the end was here. But instead of Rommel being supplied with new better equipment the Brits got it in the nick of time. The Americans stripped the 1st Armored Divisionoftheir New Sherman’s and America Sent 300 Sherman’s to Montgomery just at the right time to stop Rommel. It’s hard to believe how close he was to Winning it all . The Brits must have Actually been saying ( God
Bless America ) at that point. This is just my opinion not fact .
