I missed the heat, flames, and excitement of Saturday, I had to go to work, but Friday and Sunday was great! It was good to see a Panther and a Jagdpanther in action but for me it was very good to see a Churchill and Firefly running as well.
Thanks must go to all, but I especially wish to thank Peter Nash for his organisation of a supply of Tea, brilliant!

Hi Dennis, Thanks for asking I have a strained knee and severely strained ankle so I will be on sticks for a few weeks :roll: I had some lengthy tests to see why I blacked out fortunately all have come back saying I'm in very good health, to stop the blackouts which don't happen that often I have to resist going from deep sleep to racing around in an instant, strangely my blood sugar count is very good meaning I didn't drink enough beer the night before. It wont be long before I'm back on my feet.

thanks for all the great pictures for those of us who cannot attend. What a superb collection of Armortek models - hard to name a favorite, but the Panther F is really cool. Great looking models - the company has come a long way since 1995!

Awesome event - thanks again for photos!

Finished at last. The Armortek TankFest video is up:

https://youtu.be/N0yq6vpZu98

Screenshot 2019-07-03 at 12.07.48.jpg

About four hours of video condensed into 18mins. Probably haven't done the weekend justice but then, I'm not a YouTuber. I started out putting some music in the silent bits and then remember how much I loathe naff YouTube background music, so it's silent movie time in some bits.

Hope you enjoy.

Stephen
