Re: Engine L60 for Chieftain

I have agree with Stephen, a wonderful example of the top end of the Leyland L60. I was at the start very enthusiastic about the project. but as time went by, I found myself continually bogged down with trying to keep to a certain level of detail, always trying to find the right balance of what look...

Re: X51 Stickleback

Lovely Job Mick. 8) Hope mine looks as good when I get round to it. Hard to believe that these four x craft subs were to play a part in British nuclear deterrent in the 1950's. Nothing like a good old British suicide mission. I'd want more than a "stiff upper lip" to get into one those things with a...

Re: 00 FD 96 John's Main Contender

Richard, Mud guards to you too! I haven't done much to the Chieftain model, waiting for bolts that seem to take for ever to come, 12ba hex heads from BA bolts com, waiting on 7 days now. The coach and horses must arrive soon. I could have, with a few breaks run there and back by now. I've been tryin...

Re: A Chequered Chieftain at #10

That's a radical mod for a radical paint job you've got there Richard. But sometimes things have to be made to fit and it will only get more radical when the Stillbrew gets attached. This Chieftain model is effectively a blank canvas, you'll be shifting stuff around to suit the Berlin camo for month...

Re: Chieftain kit arrival

Hi Youngjae, I do find you post really entertaining, instructive and sometimes "whoosh" right over my head. I know that you wish to crack the stabilization thing, but have you had a look at this , "GSU 2 Axis Gun Stabilize Unit - 35 RC Tank". Or the recently seen "K12 - 35 RC Tank"- RC Conversion Ki...

Re: Chieftain No 26 By Andy Musgrove

I look at things retrospectively hoping I did the best I could with what I had at the time. Retrospectively, I certainly wouldn't do Chieftain again. (It's defiantly one step forward, two steps back, trip up, loose your footing and fall off a cliff). No worries, it'll be classic. On rare occasions I...

Re: Chieftain No 26 By Andy Musgrove

Steven, I'm guessing it wasn't the sort of thing you'd want to happen in a built up area, although from an engineering maintenance view, it might have brought a wirery smile for a few moments. :D Not so funny for the driver, but since it's his job to check these sorts of things and it would be his j...
