It's a wasted trip baby. Nobody said nothing about locking horns with no Tigers.

Looking good alright. Is it just me or does the front left wheel (dunno if it's the idler or drive sprocket or whatever) looks a little clean compared to the rest of the tank? Might just be me....

It does look a bit short on the pigments on that drive sprocket. I gave it a good dusting, but looks like most has blown/fallen off :dry:

Easy fix though :D
