Looks like you all had a great day. Very sorry we could not be there, thanks to Stephen for organising.

Look forward to seeing you all at Tankfest!

It was indeed a great day .... much better organised (by Bovington !) than the debacle in February. The unloading and parking was smooth as silk this time.

The running area was small, but we made the most of it. By my count we had 18 models out: 3 King Tigers, 2 Panthers, 2 Jagdpanthers, 2 Pz.III's, a 251 Halftrack, a Cromwell, and the rest being Tiger 1's of various types. Massive thanks to Denny for bringing his 'pallet hill', which showed just what the tanks could do. And the crowds were constant and interested, asking lots of questions before the inevitable "how much do they cost ?" :D

Thanks, as ever, to Stephen for doing all the heavy admin. The rest of us just do our small bit to make it look good.

Onwards to Tankfest ! (with some other shows in between).
2 x Mark IV's (Abt. 14 Beutepanzer Liesel and F30 Flaming Fire II)
Morris Quad, 2 x limbers and 1 x 25-pdr (45RA, Korea 1951)
M3 Lee (25th Dragoons, Burma 1944)

Tiger Day Part 2

A modest running area but what it lacked in size was more than made up by the entertainment provided by Denny's knife edge, although no-one managed the "Denny Roll".

A great day out. The Tank Museum staff were well organised and unfailingly helpful, the crowd were numerous and interested and it was great to catch up after the winter pause. I even had time to do some measuring....

Thanks to everyone for coming and thanks to those who took the time to reply to my requests. Now to focus on TankFest...

Regards
