Where it all started

This is the Master Class Archive. Of particular interest is Tiger 205. Within the tirst year of this forum being created one guy decided to do something unique at that time. He took a basic HL Tiger and started detailing it. It was almost complete when tragedy struck and he passed away at a young age. The tank was later handed to a worthy and experienced builder to complete. It was renovated, detail added, and handed to Tony's widow at a weekend tank show, together with an engraved tankard. Tony was one of the first modellers to attempt this at a time when there was little in the way of brass etch or anything else, it was all done by hand. He inspired many to do the same, and his legacy lives on to this day.
