    This section of tile 6 has me stumped. What do you guys think? Could be Sealab (left), could be Airfix 1/24 Harrier (right)...

    There is the other Harrier part just above in the top left, as well as a general lack of Sealab on this tile, which makes me lean towards the Harrier. Again, what do you guys think??

    They could also just be pieces of Plastruct tubing cut in half. hard to tell. they scale out at about 1/2" diameter, which is a size of Plastruct tubing. Both the Sealab and Harrier parts are a bit larger than that.

    ...It might sound mean, but I think the joins between the circular pipes it too neat for it to be constructed...I think its a complete found part...

ID:	837871The Tamiya 1/35 Tiger 1 looks to be the correct part when comparing to the pontoon bridge part, the remaining part cut in half used on Tile 2? I've checked the scale and looks right, Dave, you have it on the list as 1/25?

    Tile 6. These two pieces are from the Bandai 1/24 Jagdpanther (they don't share in the 1/24 Panther G kit as lots of parts do). There are a few other small pieces covering the holes...still searching for those.

    Note: Apologies for the double ID just clicked the last image Sparky70 posted. Oops!
