You're on a role with the offbeat stuff Darren! This will be really helpful when I get a chance to build mine in 1/35.

Bovington Tank Museum is a gold mine of the one offs and limited surviving vehicles in good condition.

Darren, how did you know that I bought this 3 weeks ago??????????

Thanks for the walkaround, it will be helpfull, pity it is mpossible to read the sign. Does it say anything about the colours? Are they original or is this a repainted Beutepanzer, restored to something close to the original?

Man, that thing looks like a Tiger rolled over it and they beat it back to shape with hammers.

If you guys are looking for pictures of a better example, Editions du Barbotin has this booklet

For those of you who have bought the Tamiya kit, here is my in-box review. Don't forget to read the discussion for it too.
