Re: RAF HONNINGTON

Glen,

Under normal circumstances I would be there, but I fly out to Italy the previous day, so I cannot attend.

Re: Tiger 1

Bob, Depends, but in theory yes it would have feifels if it is an early tiger. The very early ones didn't, and right towards the end of the early production as they switched to mid, you can find examples which didn't. There are 2 types of feifel, the more complicated ones you see on 131 at Bovington...

Re: Big Panther Latest

Seems like a perfectly good track to play to me. 2.15 minutes of G minor followed by a lot of Herr Gilmour's excellent guitar playing. But I supposed Run Like Hell played very loud when go into battle might scare the hell out of the enemy.

Re: tankfest 2013

As Humpy says we have had this argument many times. I can only think of one event where they tried charging us for attending, but soon changed their mind the following year when we didn't go. War and Peace and Tank fest are big money spinners for the organisers and also the shows that the world and ...

Re: Winter build projects

Yup, I know mike does the internals/externals kit for the cupola, but I wanted to use steel where possible. I found a couple of Mike's pictures from way back and used those to make virtually all of it in steel. I made the internal and external rings that go around the hatch hole on the lathe. The pa...
