Second show under my belt.....Clwyd Veteran and Vintage Show, Park Hall Showground, Oswestry. The weather on Sunday was fine and dry, although we were inside an enclosed 'hall' for models. I have to say that the Comet 'sounds' in a large enclosed hall with plenty of roof space.....are amazing. You c...

Hello Nick, that's brilliant...a recoil and flash makes all the difference to these models, brings them to life.

I have decided to install a recoil in my Comet this Autumn. Are you able to show a photo, or provide a brief description for the recoil setup for your half track.

Regards....Mick

Hello Dennis, you need to locate a good 'countryside' type store. We have a local store in Welshpool called 'Charlies', or Coed-y-Dinas. They sell everything for 'horsey' people, including rubber matting for horse boxes. The rubber mat is very hard wearing, used on the sides and floor. Standard size...

When I sold the bikes, I looked around for a new hobby, hence 1 6 scale tanks. As part of my pre-build thinking I...

Hello Bob, thank you for your kind comment. The Comet, with its weight added to the trailer weight, holds the motorcycle trailer firmly on the road. I was initially concerned that the tank trailer would bounce about in transit, thereby causing the tank to move around. However, in use, this has not b...

Hello John, as I received my Comet kit in September 2010, and with the Autumn approaching, I prepared an area in our spare bedroom in which to build the tank. I already had a large computer desk in the corner. A plywood panel was laid on the desk to protect it, and a number of small plastic trays pu...

Hello Paul,hello Phil, thank you for your kind comments. It certainly makes all the effort worth while as the crowd gathers and the kids look in awe as she fires up. I used my motorcycle jack so that I was able to run the tracks. For the next 'Show' in two weeks time, I will have the ramps in place ...
