As part of the#Spacedock IRC channel group build (#actually finish a kit for once)...

This kit i started strong on and knocked out most of the build in a day. But those tracks, after a couple inches of assembling i gave up and shelved it. so back on the bench it goes.

Ah, finally some love for the armor section! Only fitting that it's from a member with a 'shrapnel' nickname. :D

What brand is the Tiger kit?
