Re: Chieftan 01EB70 at Duxford

Actually John, it was an Army issue frying pan. Take my hat off to Dodger, he must have been fast. He did say he made a Davy Crockett hat from the remains, which he parched with salt over the MBSGD. Said you needed at least ten to feed a crew. Should have put a warning on these posts as they do on t...

Re: Chieftan 01EB70 at Duxford

And today's winner is..... Mr Clarke. Well spotted although your rodent recognition is awry. That's none other than a Canadian gopher, both a luxury food and a source of great amusement in times of idleness. You find a gopher warren, stake it out, number the holes and then take bets on which hole wi...

Re: Tiger build

Mark, yours build is one of the most rewarding to follow, it’s great to see you bringing new (old) skills to the Forum. I don’t recall anyone else making the tools as you’re doing. These traditional metalworking skills add so much to our hobby as they’re not beyond most people if you’re prepared to ...

Re: Late Tiger 1 commission build by Phil Woollard

Phil, you're doing a great job with the Tiger, an inspiring build to follow. You're showing the limitations of Milliput and you're pushing it as far as it will go. Once it gets below about 1mm in width, it has problems and the detail suffers. 1mm in 1/6th is of course 6mm full size, which is unrepre...

Re: My Beaut Aussie Cent

At the risk of flogging a dead horse, I've played on Photoshop with the "Austeracised" image of Adrian's Centurion Bridgelayer and my Beaut Aussie Cent. This was the original 1969 photo, enhanced as best I can: original good copy.jpg The photo was taken in August 1969, at the same time as I've tried...

Re: My Beaut Aussie Cent

This photo was taken in Vietnam in 1969 by Sgt Sandy Tocock, who commanded the ARV of B Sqn, 1st Armd Regiment. Sandy Tocock would have been in theatre at the same time as My Beaut Aussie Cent and David Hay and his crew. Although I don't yet know which tank is on the bridge, I couldn't rule out that...

Re: Supplies for dual fuel tanks

Interesting Adrian. I don’t think the British Army ever got the multi-fuel concept to work as designed. It’d be a brave Chieftain owner who tried now but given the cost of filling one, they might give it a go.

Re: The Phoenix - Tiger 131 #12

Not to mention a certain “Centurion bridgelayer with Mo 6 bridge”. Outstanding skill Adrian to restore those units. Really inspiring.

Re: At Flying Legends

Lovely Cuban Fury there and a brave soul in the background building a Brewster Buffalo. Good luck with that one. Mixing scales at these shows has one downside, it compromises the scale effect. With so few tanks at Legends, there wasn't a choice but at predominantly tank shows, having separate areas ...

Re: Panzer III, hull #23 build.

Stuart, it cures anerobically. Between two mating surfaces in direct contact, it will harden off quickly but on a surface free to air it will remain tacky. If you then paint over it, it will prevent the paint adhering, even etch prime. Best to use a solvent cleaner to remove any external residue.
