Winter Manoeuvres

A PzII above and a Tiger below caught in a snowy landscape a clever use of washes to denote an ageing tank.

 

DID YOU KNOW

It was considered by both Allies and Axis tank crews very unwise to sleep under your tank for safety at night as it could gradually sink in the soft earth and crush you.

Initial Tiger

By

 Peter Symonds, Nottingham, UK.

Although Designed as the "Break through Tank" the Tiger 1 spent most

of the war in defensive actions. One of the few times that it was used in

the assult roll fro which it was designed for was during the seige of

leningrad. Under pressure from Hitler the tank was deployed several

months before it was truly combat ready and the first Tigers issued to

the 502nd heavy tank battalion lacked many features such as trackguards,

tool boxes and towing cables that was fitted to later models.

 

This is a Heng Long Tiger 1 converted to resemble one of the initial Tigers

captured by the Russians during the brutal winter fighting around Lake Ladoga.

This model features side stowage boxes and the correct 'Intital' specification

exhausts (both by Imperial Modelbau) modified to produce smoke.

DID YOU KNOW

 

Between 1939 and 1945 the Contents of the British Museum and the Victoria and Albert Museum were stored in a deep stone quarry at Westwood in Wiltshire, but the best kept secret of all was the destination of the Crown Jewels.

 

To this day the hiding place has never been revealed.
