Mid-Shropshire Vintage Show

At long last....our first 'Show'. Great day. fine weather and lots of interest in the Comet....including an old guy who had driven a Comet while on National Service. At one point after displaying the Comet 'sounds' I had a round of applause from the crowd....quite made my day. Bear with me while I t...

Hello John, I was a first time buyer about this time last year. I took the plunge and went for the A34 Comet. Tomorrow all being well, my wife and I will attend our first 'Vintage Show' in Shrewsbury Shropshire. The Comet will be on display in the Military Section. The A34 Comet is my first Armortek...

Hello Phil and Adrian, I also purchased the Pixie Suit with the later Dragon Terry Davies. I have boiled the suit and I have painted the suit, however the end result has not been good. So, I collected a few Dragon Douglas Kay and Dragon 'Fred' tanker bodies. I have cut 'Fred' down to chest level as ...

Hello Phil, I seem to recognize those tankers...I must check my crew just in case any have gone AWOL. The weathering is something I have real problems with. I have always built my aircraft and boats to look, "off the assembly line". Pleased to see you are making even more progress. I have my 'displa...

Hello John, super build, takes me back to when I started. The help you receive along the way is second to none. I'm sure you also had the trials and tribulations, however the end result when your Comet rolls out is well worth all your efforts. That is one mean looking tank....well done and best wish...

Bostin' work Phil, any room for the crew :lol: I have run my Comet again....around the paved area in front of the bungalow, I noticed some very slight wear on the tracks...I will keep off the tarmac and stoney areas. I also spotted when turning on one track, how the other track goes very loose. It's...

Thanks John, the trailer is a left over when I sold my motorcycle. It was relatively easy to convert. I will let you know how the package behaves on the road. Great tiger build, I have been following your progress....Mick

Thanks Phil, I was pleasantly surprised at the ease at which the Comet climbs the metal motorcycle ramps. The motors have so much power, coupled with the engine sounds, the tank is really a joy to drive. The weather also helps, so I had a very enjoyable morning. The Iron Duke is safely back in the d...
