May 2001 Issue - Al's Kit Corner: Blue Angels Tiger

"I believe they come as short-nosed Tigers (refueling probe in nose) rather than the long-nosed version. Also, the Tigers served for 11 seasons. I think they transitioned mid-season in 1957, and changed over to the F-4J for the 1969 season. The A-4 served from 1974 to 1986 (12 seasons), and of course the F-18s from 1987 to present (14 seasons and counting)."

March 2001 Issue - AMC 1/72 Bergepanzer Tiger SdKfz 185 In Box Review

I read your review of the AMC 1/72 "Bergetiger" kit. Unfortunately I believe you are perpetuating an error, namely that this vehicle is some sort of ARV. It cannot be a recovery vehicle. A few years ago I wrote an article discussing the application of this tank, and it can be seen at http://members.tripod.com/~fingolfen/tigh.html.
