With apologies to Denny Patterson, who is perfectly safe with his tanks, almost all the time. Thanks for organising the Weston show at the weekend, Denny, photos and video to follow soon.

I think those are WW2 Nazi "Goliath" mines.

They were on the beaches at Normandy and Calais and designed to drive in among troops and landing craft and detonate. Another German war innovation that was too cute by half.

Actually, they would make a neat 1:1 Armortek model.... in 1/6th scale... they would be the size of a 1/35th Tiger. And where is the fun in that? But in 1:1 scale, they could be an amazing historic replica.

Great picture and caption!

Cheers,
