Selling on behalf of Widow (part 2)

MANY THANKS. Last year you helped out my friend's widow by buying just under £1,500 of models. This paid nearly the whole bill for the family to go to Legoland Windsor in October 2019 and they had a great time. I still have 12 boxes of kits to sell and have catalogued 7 of them.

Re: Tiger I

Not really surprising if you read about units and battles from the standpoint of the participants. For example there where 138 Panzer II (excl Luchs) in Oct 44 and 538 Panzer III gun tanks surrendered in May 45. Considerably more specialist Panzer III surrendered (HQ, OP, Recovery, Engineer, Tractor...
