Re: Bren gun carrier

Hello William, I think fabric is correct, the 25pdr with the limber would have been to heavy for the small Bren carrier, found one picture but this is a modern static picture, 1019739.jpg Seeing these carriers driving at military shows and what a handful they look like to drive, I cant imagine what ...

Re: Paul & Robin's Centurion

hello robin,
try the BMFA, web site http://www.bmfa.org or email admin@bmfa.org, they offer liability insurance for these models at a very competitive rate. the only draw back it runs 1st Jan to 31st Dec, I think it costs £18 a year for non flying models,
hope this helps.
