Re: The Time has Arrived... RPR's Rolls-Royce Build(s)!

Robert - Love that picture of the inside of the Armoured Car ! It just shows what could be done, if you left out the batteries, motion control, servos ..... but that would rather defeat the objective, wouldn't it ? :wink: It does raise a question that's been in my mind for some time, though. On each...

Re: Chris's Rolls-Royce project - late to the party .....

Well, the current bothersome situation ( #BritishUnderstatement :wink:) gives us all plenty of time to get on with all those projects we've got outstanding. And, for me, that's the Rolls-Royce. I've never bought a second-hand, part-built model before ! So I thought a good way to start would be to go...

Re: REME Museum, Lyneham, Wiltshire - 2020 events

Sadly, but unsurprisingly, REME has shut down and cancelled all their events until at least the end of July:

Thanks to those of you who expressed interest in the VE Day event.

Stay well,

Re: Militracks 2020 - 16/17 May

Pete - I've been monitoring this, as I'm sure we all have. Whether or not Militracks goes ahead (and I'm assuming it won't 😔), the other issue is how to get there. The U.K. is in lockdown, so we can't get out and, unless we take the Harwich - Hook of Holland ferry, all routes go through France, whic...

Re: Detailing

John - If you look at the front page of the Forum you’ll see a section called Knowledge Base. The answers to most of your questions will be there. You should also read all the topics in the King Tiger section. Finally, the instruction manual will have a list of all the basic tools you’ll need - but ...

Re: Doing more for the environment

Don't mind sorting out different sized fasteners .... that's quite therapeutic ! But I am slightly concerned about the manuals. Colour me strange :shock: but I like to keep the manual pages pristine in plastic sleeves in a binder - I see it as an integral part of the product, like the model itself a...

Re: Militracks 2020 - 16/17 May

For those of us in the South and West, Dover - Dunkirk looks the optimum. Last time I looked, it was slightly cheaper than the Calais crossing, about half hour more boat time (enough for a decent meal and a rest) and, of course, slightly less driving at t'other end ..... Our plan is to travel on Fri...

Re: What a way to propose...

Not much of an idea about security either. Allowing a civilian in the middle of a military exercise .... :roll:

But, on the other hand .... Aaw, that's so sweet ! :lol:

Well, we survived everything Storm Dennis could throw at us, and still managed to have a good time !

Hopefully they have put us together as previous events.

I've specifically asked that we're all together ..... here's hoping.

Re: SW Model Show, Tank Museum, UK. 15/16 Feb

I've just had a bit more information from Bovington, who are delighted that we'll have a presence on both days. We are definitely in the Tank Story Hall, so please follow Stephen's instructions above. I'm told we've been given a larger running area :D but, given the redesign of the WW2 Hall and the ...

Re: Quad No. 34 – new owner, new identity

Praise indeed - thanks, Chaps !

And 45RA were indeed the 'West Yorkshire Gunners'. Given the Yorkshire propensity for putting an extra 'e' in everything :oops: ..... Put it down to ignorance, as I never touch the stuff (I'm an Armagnac man myself).

Apologetically,

Re: Quad No. 34 – new owner, new identity

Well, it's been a bad year on the personal front (they don't teach 'Dealing with aged and dying parents 101' at school so you have to make it up on the fly when the time comes :cry:) so progress on my Quad hasn't gone nearly as quickly as I intended. But, as seems to be the way with these things, it...
