Can anybody shed any light on this?
The old (without ammunition bin on the back of the turret) Airfix Tiger Tank kit is still about and retailing at £4.99 in the shops (UK). However I was in Model Craft and say a Airfix Starter Kit, with a nice new box art cover. Not a sand coloured Tiger #332 in the desert/Tunisia but a sand and green Tiger in Normandy (with a Sherman 76mm brewing in the background).
What really caught my eye was the nice cover art line drawing of the Tiger with a stowage bin on the back. Hmmm, interesting.Have they done the decent thing and finally retooled it?
Unfortunately retailing at £6.99 I resisted the urge to buy (having plenty of cats already) and I didn't just break into the box, but I am dying to know if the cover matches with the kit inside, as in this implies new tooling. I scanned the Airfix site but cannot see it in their releases, nor does Google Images help but something new is in the shops, strange?
Can anyone offer any help here?
