And now, with a click or two of his magic computery fingers, a picture will appear from Possum
The track link connectors and pins are done.
Now for some serious testing, before the three people who have made serious enquiries and myself can ensure that the Challenger 2 stays as the best looking model tank and not the saddest looking wheelbarrow !

Ok Andy, I've given the go ahead to my machinist for the rest of my set, with an order for another set as well.
Either to be sold as a complete set or as repair bits, I will keep you informed.

Certainly Andy, but we are probably a couple of months away from completion of a second set. . . . . He is downsizing to being a one man band, lots of equiptment to move, etc. but he is keen and the lathe and mill are set up for them.

Let me know if you need more than 5 :)

No problem on the hollybones.

But needs to be a full system as it's all design to actually fit together and be used as opposed to being a purely aesthetic piece :)

Same with the tow wire, it's all designed around common connecting pins.

Pm me your address will get them sent off tomorrow morning.

Let me know what your needing on the holly bones as will print them this week :)

Cheers
Andy

Hi Rob,

See photos below of Towing Yoke.

Will add to the parcel with the fuel caps.

You'll note the undercut ridge on the yoke, thats there to allow milliwatt to key to the model so you can add weld beads etc.

Will add this to the for sale section for anybody else who is interested.

Cheers
Andy
