Ay up Phil, that's the sort of rumor that could get an engine a bad name. :D

Could be worse, this little German classic's had three engine's to my knowledge and still sounded like a right bag of bolts, I was there on it's debut standing near the guy with the white hat.
Still..... it could have been worse..... it could have been a Panther on it's debut ..............1943. :roll:

How about a Stolly towing a Chieftain :lol: now there's a diorama. 8)

Hi Guys
Still hoping for a universal carrier .
Nice size should be easy to transport and lots of scope for detailing.

Regards

Derek
we must stop making stupid predictions

Hi,

I'm hoping for the opposite to Derek... large heavy and difficult to transport ....the most powerful production armored fighting vehicle of ww2

Hi All,

What about a Matilda 1. A cracking little tank that will be easy to transport and something a little different from the heavy weights

Regards

Dave

A Siberian Hamster?

The A11 driver doesn't look very happy with his ride :(
Nice rivets but not many :cry:

He'd been happier with this sports car A15 upgrade, as long as there weren't any sand, German tanks or guns around.
Plenty of rivets too :D

Armortek did the Ultimate Panther Kit.

How about the Ultimate CVR(T) Kit, you could build it as a Scorpion, Scimitar, Spartan, Sultan, Samaritan or Samson or switch between the different variants.

On second thoughts, maybe not such a good idea. Someone would turn it into the abomination of a Salamander.

In case anyone was wondering (but I doubt it):

2 RTR OPFOR Salamander. Go to Luggershall Vehicle Depot, select your Scorpions, take them to Canada, chat up a hardware wholesaler in Medicine Hat and corner the market in drainpipes and oil drums, add a lot of hard work, fit SAAB DFWES and voila, Salamander, representing T-64, to provide enemy forces for the British Battlegroups. 2RTR were the first OPFOR in 1995.
