Re: Armorteks next model

So there is some merit in this idea, would link in nicely with the CVR(t) as a late 20th century piece of (Kompact)kit. :D

Re: Best batteries to use for chieftain

Evening Daniel

As John mentioned my name, the only thing I can offer is that my total run time to date is about 30 mins.

Then break down.

Hopefully 🤞🏼 motors back tomorrow and will run until the batteries run down, which are those referred to by John.

Cheers Charles

Re: Chieftain No. 34

Filed turret and a temporary fit of back deck, turret spins beautifully. Back deck not quiet square so some adjustments required. BTW someone needs a telephone!! As Stephen has commented no one called him during his time on Chieftain, quite rightly if a high speed reverse was ordered. In my case our...

Re: Chieftain No. 34

Been hiding in the workshop, very wet on Saturday. Fitted the pannier sides during the week. I have been playing about with the turret fittings, dry fitting, filing, etching, etc. Turret ring (lazy Susan) wasn't too far out compared to recent offerings. Turret is snagging rear deck, the deck is only...

Re: Chieftain No. 34

Had an e-mail from HQ.

So to be fair to them, lets see what crack is and take it from there.

Yes, it is very disappointing, chin up. :D

Re: Chieftain No. 34

Evening all. I hope this video whets the appetite. The rattles will be the return rollers bedding in as HQ has suggested. Apologies for the commander falling over: Who's technically in charge of stowage? We are learning. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9IKuPd64XbE This was fun to do, however, one of...

Re: Chieftain No. 34

Thank you for your ambitions for No.34.

Re: Chieftain No. 34

Raining, but never mind.
motors fitted and working. unfortunately I can only go back and forth, carefully, on the bench.

Hope to have drive round garden over the weekend.

How strong should the bailey Brdg. be, scale wise.

Take care all.
