BTW, you can't have both recoil and blank firer.
Exactly what Adrian says.
Dangerous and illegal.

Knowledge Base Topic - Soldering

Did you see the weld seams in the last photo? I wonder how that was done.
Machining marks (but makes a nice effect) :-)

Re: M3 Production Validation Build

Between posting on facebook and instagram, I forgot to post on the forum !

Here are some of the earlier picture - more to follow next week. Unfortunately the heat treatment of the volute springs is delayed by a week, so can't get the tank on the ground yet.

Re: Armortek Open Day 2019

Bringing a model is optional. We will have a running area and course, and it would be great to see everyone's models - but if for what ever reason you cannot bring your model then you are still welcome. To answer your earlier question Adrian, this is an Open Day similar to the one we had in 2017. Kian

Re: Tiger Day - (27 April 19) & TankFest (28/30 June 19)

A good point however free tickets will only be allocated to customers who bring a model with them. At the moment it is not clear that tanks will be able to be brought to the running area and removed from the running area during the three days. Once we get clarity on this then we will provide an upda...
