Hi guys I'm with Stephen on this for me it would have to be the CVRT Scimitar or a ssm Ferret (squadron sergeant major) with on turret allowing lots of opportunities for upgrading.
As Stephen said 70 mph on the on the area during Spearpoint and Lionheart.
I will always remember the look on some of the German drivers as we overtook them.
Or through scale speed I think would be a problem rather hard to handle.

M24 Chaffee. Small, nimble and used by many countries from WWII until the 1980s. Good suspension, nice 'lines'.

You're a long way up a hill there, so I presume that's run off ?

Hope it dries up quickly and didn't do any damage.

Did you find out if the chalet floats ?

Normal English summer day :-)
Actually more like a short sharp downpour on a large roof surface with insufficient guttering and waterproofing.

Unfortunately all the electrics and a couple of CNC machines got drenched, so will take a while to recommission.

Can finally put the bailey bridge to use in the factory :roll:

Sorry to see that Kian!

When it rains it pours... would 2020 just get over already?

Fortunately, all us Land Rover enthusiasts know that a bit of water won't slow down their next model... You know... the Land Rover.

Just 'sayin!

Best to all my friends! This too shall pass.

Sorry to hear Kian, hope recovery isn’t too painful or protracted. Would it be in bad taste to suggest a DUKW next.......or Sherman DD? No, on second thoughts, the perfect complement to Chieftain, a Stalwart.....

Sad news, Hope the factories up and running soon :cry:

But a Stolly (not a shot of vodka) yes. It's so 60's Thunderbirds era, with a great suspension system it'd look great off road.
Not this one though. :(
