Thank you John, there are fees to pay for the use of such tracks, although I believe around 2 seconds of air time is ok.
Another moody still from the latest video.

Does the sound track cost if it’s a cover?
If so , time to dust off the old Yamaha keyboard.

Talking of sound tracks, for all those that have thought about making a four stroke engine to power their Tiger tank? Put the kettle on as your going to be sat watching this for some time, it's rough as guts but truly inspirational all the same!

Another still photo from the firing trial, this was the very lightest charge, I have some advise for those that have the firing device and wish to use it safely, which I shall post in due course.
If you look closely the first road wheel is about to shead the tyre.

This chap's got all the making's of BL 1970's engine designer.

I wounder if he's got a spare weekend and could nip over and give my 200 Chieftain tracks a tickle. He certainly has a light touch with the grinder.

I'd pay him with an old spare Briggs and Stratten mower engine and hopefully stop him wasting his time on that piece of junk.

Explosive pictures Phil, like em

Is Simon Manning ok? I've sent him a PM a few days ago now with no reply, I see he's not opened the message I sent so obviously not read it!

The weathered shiny wheel rims where added on the lathe and not by the wheels rubbing each other, although that is what it is recreating as the 1/1 would have suffered from this.

The tracks are bedding in nicely and have just about finished stretching for now, although I will leave the track adjuster armour covers off for a while longer yet.

You may be able see that there are little to no "witness" marks on the sprocket teeth, as I have said before that once the running gear is set up correctly you don't even need to chamfer those teeth.

I've just taken delivery of some new pyrotechnic effects see video. That sound is genuine to, listen to the projectile on its way in prior to the impact!
Was that a Churchill that fired at the tiger? Did the Churchill have the capability of firing HE rnds?

These models are so tuff, so just superficial damage to the paint work only! Those battle scares will stay to.

No, but then yes. The Mark I had a 2 pdr in the turret, with no HE capability but also a 3in howitzer in the hull with 150 HE rounds. It was utterly useless. The later Mk III/IVs had the 6pdr, which were capable of firing HE but it wasn't until some were re-armed with the 75mm that the Churchill had an effective AP and HE weapon.

Your new pyros do a passing imitation of a Swingfire ATGW (and about as accurate).

I was hoping that you would reply to my question Stephen, food for thought for Armortek when they choose a mk to build, what did they fire at Tiger 131, that was a solid rnd I believe, a 6 pounder?

Those pyros .....The rocket assisted projectiles look great in slow motion, if you look closely you can see it tumbling! Swingfire was a wire guided weapon, before my time, I'm more familiar with Milan (also wire guided) and the shelf life time expired examples that we used were bloody dangerous, obviously they need to be lethal but not for the the guy at the optics on the firing post! I've seen them "plop off" the firing post as a misfire and land maybe 10mtrs in front! Personnel sure can run fast at times.

Anyway back to those pyros, I have paired the rocket assisted with a new product that requires a ballistic hit to initiate it ie shoot it, that's what you can hear incoming. I have made similar but it's sketchy loading the medium.

I now have to do some more filming of the rocket assisted projectiles actually striking the tiger, then edit the splash. 8)
