Lyle Christensen
Ottawa, Ontario, Canada
Lyle was inspired by the story of a Canadian tanker of the 2nd Armoured, Sherbrooke Fusiliers: Seeking a defensive position in fighting around Saint-André-sur-Orne in Normandy, Philip Lawrence eased his Sherman next to a stone building and tall hedge. Suddenly, a German Tiger emerged from the other side of the building and rolled in front of him. The surprised tank crews traded shots at point blank range before the Sherman driver roared off in reverse. Lyle built AFV Club's 1/35 scale late-production Tiger with photoetched-metal Zimmerit from Eduard. Dragon's kit - British Sherman Mk.III, Sicily - was modified with sand skirts omitted and front fenders trimmed to shape. The building is made from plywood and covered with adhesive stone veneer, a model railroad item.
