Re: Armorteks next model

What to suggest for Armortek's next Model? How about going back to WW I with a Renault FT? There's enough WW.2, especially German tanks, a Sherman would be popular, possibly a Churchill, but WW.I saw the birth of what has been a significant weapon in an army's arsenal. First the British Mk.I then th...

Re: Militracks 2020 - 19/20 September

I've re-booked my ferry tickets for the new dates. Cost me £40, but it was that or cancel them and get no refund because I booked Economy tickets originally. :(

Re: For They Shall Not Grow Old....

Peter jackson is a bit of a WW.I aficionado. He set up "The Vintage Aviator Company" that makes accurate WW I aircraft, they are not simply 'replicas' but more an extension to the original production. The aircraft TVA make are accurate to the original, including their faults, with one exception, mod...

Re: Doing more for the environment

Personally, when I get an armortek kit is to dispense all the fasteners into small parts storage racks like the following. I sort them into size etc., after all an M3x10 hex head screw is the same no matter what kit it is issued with, so I wouldn't mind the fasteners being in paper bags. One can pri...

Re: Militracks 2020 - 16/17 May

For us UK travellers, I have been looking at some routes and times on google Maps. For those of you S.W. of London it is about 3/4 to 1/2 hour extra to get to Harwich rather than Dover Pro's for Dover: 1 1/2 hour crossing, cheaper fare: can pick more sailing times Con: 4 hour drive from Calais to Ov...

Re: Universal carrier at Pozieeres

I think the Mk. I Gun carrier might be an interesting addition to the Armortek range, especially with BL 60 pounder?
