Well the ol girl is stuck in Customs at Heathrow right now, according to the shippers HMRC need even more paper work before she can be on her way across the water at 400 mph!
Apparently it's due to Brexit and the guys in the peaked caps getting twitchy lol. To me it's a another way of punishing us for wanting to be independent again. :roll: :roll:

Be patient Brian shes coming 8) 8)

Thank god it arrived in one piece, despite the bump to the nr side fender and the periscope coming adrift she looks pretty good! Get that sound selected and enjoy the Maybach 8) 8) Did you notice that I had to clean the tracks to keep customs happy?

I love the tank big thanks to Phil for getting it shipped to me practically complete. Just had to ad my batteries. It was really fun driving around.

Nice model Brian. The Panther G is a great model. Lucky to get one of Phil's Masterpieces. I seem to find out they are for sale only after someone else buys it and its long gone (aKA FAMO).

I like the fender bend - looks authentic.

You well on your way to having one of all Armortek models. 8)

Well she looks right at home, right now! You will find that the idler adjustment is at or nr "max out" due to the addition of the extra track pieces, so you will need to remove one each side as the tracks bed in after being cleaned. I used wd40 to push the water out the track pin contact areas (a whole can in fact) this will evaporate away in time so maybe keep off the dusty grit for a bit :roll:
That transit damage to the fender, as Bob said, look authentic so maybe leave it as is. It's all character I suppose! 8) .....regards Phil.
