Keeping Track – product highlights of recent AFV or AFV accessory releases.

10 page Relics of a Death Ride

Look at a French Farmers collection of battlefield panzer bits and pieces from the paddock Witmann died in. Some useful panzer details not just Tiger bits.

The issue continues the excellent trend of this magazine with more excellent modelling and reference material.

Highly recommended.
