Hello Lawrence, Yes I second your request, I have my sound set-up on one of the 2.4 ghz joy-stick controls and it can be a bit of pot-luck what sound comes out, plus I feel that I have lost one of my joy-stick controls. :( At Beltring I even had Thomas Benedeni himself trying to get the correct soun...

Allan, I am looking at your snaps with much interest. I used to have a spring track tension system on my metal 1/10 scale metal Jagdpanther, but when I tried to do neutral turns on wet English lawn grass the tension system came into operation and closed-up resulting in a thrown track. There was no p...

I will have to buy another sdkfz 222 so I can ride on them, one to each foot.

Correcting spelling..

I went onto the gallery to correct a spelling mistake I had made. After making the correction the following was displayed: ___________________________________________________________ Edit Conflict!

Adrian,

I have in my minds-eye you standing on your Sherman and driving it at full backward speed into the decking... and then chewing-up the lawn. Please could we have a snap or a video?

What make combined volt/amp meter did you buy?

Dale, Thank you for that information. I will certainly pass the Jockey club address on to them and ask them to say hello. What have I been up to? well the sdkfz 222 is almost finished, but I keep making changes and alterations so maybe it is not that finished... Saving-up fo a trip to Auzzie, maybe ...

Hello Derek,
I wanted to know what part of Newcastle the show was in as I have some relations who live in the NSW City of Newcastle. I was going to email them so that they could have a look at Dales Tiger.

What a very clean and tidy work and display area you have.

Ad, Thankyou for the advice regarding the felt, I did not realize that putting felt between speaker and ear would make an improvement in sound quality. I have heard of this problem of metal to metal movement causing radio interference. If it was as bad as all that why do the 1/6 tanks run without mu...

Nick, Your hampster is very well trained, what do you feed it? and what's his or her name? Is he or she married with lots of little hampsters running around. Have you any spare ones? I could use a couple of very small hampsters in my sdkfz 222 to handle the little 20mm used rounds. If they could als...

Ad, I think I understand your excellent description of the modification. 8) Did you fit one of the special tungsten toothed servos or just an ordinary one? Please could we have some snaps of your very interesting modifications? You talk of the "Driver's manual" do you have one? I take it from your a...

Ad, I seem to remember on the old forum that you had an extra servo rear steering fitted? Does it have the same steering ratio as the front and have you fitted another servo-saver at the rear? Could the rear steering on the 1:1 full-sized sdkfz 222 be controled in this way. Was the rear normally lef...

Ad, Thankyou for your prompt answer. Just shows you how little I know about this subject. I will have to think-up some other place to fit it. I noticed at Beltring Hop farm that Mark/Armortek had managed to squeeze it in so some of the speaker was facing outward through the grill behind the turret. ...

4 inch speaker mounting

As you can see on the gallery I have fitted the speaker with Meccano in front of the batteries near the front of the 222, but I do not like it there. It all seems very flimsy. I know nothing of speakers and I was wondering if I could make use of the strong magnet at the back of the speaker to mount ...
