Re: Just how big is 1/4 scale!

Nice videos. Liked the tank transporter, swimming APC and submarine T34. Good waterproofing.
I note Dirk is a Phil Collins fan.

Panther, Pz IV and Hetzer pictures

Go to: http://www.livinghistory.ru//index.php? ... =3413&st=0

From the Tanks of WW2 Forum. You can click on any of the pictures in a number of the posts. Good views of Russian re-enactors and their vehicles. Interesting to compare with the latest pics on Vince's gallery.

Built to last Challies...

I have read that it is intended that the Challenger 2 will remain in service for another 30 years, and that it is to get the Rheinmetall L/55 120mm smoothbore to improve interoperability with other Western MBTs. If correct, this is no doubt a compliment to the design, but also perhaps reveals plenty...

Re: Whens The Next Meeting?

No underestimating the ambition and capabilities of the pyro crowd Peter. I did say I'd be surprised if Tulips hadn't been considered. :o Your order a coincidence? Hmm.

Re: Whens The Next Meeting?

Hi Clive, An interesting guess but you don't win the coconut. Do you know something of my T34's new crewman: Jerry? Hi Rob, I'm afraid clumsy handling exiting the shed inflicted more battle damage. Even clumsier repair blew a chip. The Easton tank surgeon carried out emergency open heart surgery and...

Scroll down the options on the left and click on the tank picture headed Panzerwaffe.
Excellent pictures, photos and videos of German AFVs. I haven't worked out how to get a translation but the pictures are worth a visit alone.
