Re: Stats n' stuff

..........Is there another underlying success story in the data, which would suggest something other than Tiger tanks appeals to those who read the Forum? Unfortunately the data that we get does not go to that level of detail. Google Analytics can help, but it just generates strings that some one w...

Stats n' stuff

With all this rain this weekend, been doing some behind the scenes cleanup and looking at some forum statistics. As a headline, the numbers give a great indication of the value that people attach to the content in this forum and a very healthy sign for the 1:6 scale market as a whole. ... Comparing ...

Re: Late Tiger 1 commission build by Phil Woollard

Unfortunately we were too busy packing and shipping today to see the tone and direction that this thread has taken.

Please keep conversation civil.

This Forum is very lightly moderated and I want to keep it that way.

Now let’s get back to seeing Phil’s fantastic progress.

End of.

Re: Chieftain Prototype Build

Almost 8 months ago to the day we started with “Project Chieftain”, and today we are very pleased to say that the first kits have left the factory and are en route to their new owners. We are often asked how international our customer base is, and a fantastic example of that is that the first 3 kits...

Re: Armorteks next model

585 responses so far to the survey with lots of good ideas - so thanks for all who have completed it to date. The survey will run until the weekend and then we will spend some time analysing the results and pulling together our roadmap. Jack - the issue with the M4A1 is not the fact that there are c...

Re: Chieftain Prototype Build

Machining of the hull front armour well underway now & opened the factory on Saturday to get through as much as possible. Pictures below show before and after.

Re: Chieftain Prototype Build

I was wondering what other goodies will be supplied. GPMG mount and a commander search light? Ariel mounts? John, as per the first post on this thread - what was on the prototype CAD model was what we were making and shipping. The Chieftain tank is the most detailed model we have made to date and h...
