Hello Derek and thank you for the rapid response. I will wait on any further advice, although I guess you are spot on. I just expected everything to work as both batteries charged without problems. I have run the sound systems a number of times without any difficulty. I could still 'show' the Panther, however the sounds and various movements really bring the model to life. Thanks again....Mick

Welshpool Festival of Transport. A most enjoyable day in pleasant surroundings. There is something refreshingly peaceful, away from the madding crowds, in a Methodist Church hall. I have to say the level of public interest is somewhat less however, those that do venture inside the church did show a keen and remarkable knowledge of WW2 tanks. Must be an age thing :)
Had an interesting conversation with Bob, a fellow Armortek model builder. In all, a good day, plenty of interest, hardly any inquisitive tiny fingers....those that did arrive were well parented. :roll: Showing my age now...Mick

Good morning everyone, here we are again....happy as can be....all good pals and jolly good company.... Welshpool 1940s Festival.
Located the Panther in the ''Corn Exchange' alongside 'The Home Front' display. Not sure the 'girls' in their hair curlers, long aprons, and turbans were too impressed by the presence of a German tank, or be it a model....it's a model madam :roll: . Someone sounded the air raid siren.... :shock:

The event is over two days and features many wartime displays, bands, stalls selling replica, re-enactors in appropriate dress, and so on. The original plan was for the 'Panther' to be on the first floor in Welshpool Town Hall with other wartime models however, on arrival this morning the service lift at the rear proved to be too small to accommodate the tank.
I will post more photo's over the day, hopefully the rain will ease off, it's 'omering down at the moment...Mick

Wet, wet, wet, lots to see, some serious 'home front' collections, where on earth do they get these 1940s items from...The Panther was rather over shadowed. Nevertheless, some interesting conversations with other modellers, many who view and are familiar with the Armortek Forum. I was obliged to leave my post to make way for the 'crooner', very suave....not so sure about the young ladies applying their lipstick....Mick
