Any interest in animalistic GB?

Crossovers allowed?  I'm doing a P-51B Mustang for Bish's Mighty 8th GB.  Would fit nicely here.

Thanks,

John

I would be in with some form of a Tiger tank, whichever kit variation is closest to the top.

Hmm...since it was my idea, I guess I should get in on this, eh? Stick out tongue OK, maybe it wasn't exclusively my idea, I think I was just the first to post it in the suggestion thread.

So, if this happens in 2022 and goes for a year, I might jump in with a Tigercat from my stash. Wait, would the Tigercat qualify even though it's not named after a real animal?

-O

Hey, come-on,  a tiger is a cat! WinkBig Smile

At least it's not mythical like a phoenix, or maybe a unicorn........oh, I'm one of those (at least in the two way radio world).
