Armortek Tanks in even more snow

Post by Antony Rowley » Sun Jan 10, 2010 6:19 pm

Hi All,

Myself and Duncan, fellow member of the Nord West Kampfgruppe, had an early morning meeting at Storeton Woods in snowy Wirral, England. We had loads of interest from passing dog walkers even a former Chieftan tank driver :D All the interest was positive I'm glad to say :D

Unfortunately it was too cold for my spycam which would not work but when I got home in the warm it worked perfectly :cry:

Next meet is in Delamere Forest in 2 weeks time, let me know if anyones interested :wink:

Thanks Antony

Anthony,

It looks as if you had a good time and the photos look really good. i'm glad you had some positive interest from the dog walkers, and being that cold the "mines" are less effective!!

Hi Ant and Dunc,

Why does Ant and Dunc sound familiar? :lol: Any how, great photos and I am glad to see you two are getting out together. :D

Ant, I remember going to Delamere Forest years ago, but I seem to think it was to a concert :shock: Or maybe I'm just losing the plot! :oops:

Great shots!Very effective background.I think your Panther has the most outstanding paint job I've seen. Seems to do many miles on patrol as well.
Nice to have other tanks and tankers to meet with.Thanks for the photo's.
Regards
Andy
