  1. Thought this would be fun post a pic of how you put your camp on your tank . Ive seen large pics rolled up along both sides to pull over it when parked up ive all so seen lots of small bits tied on all over . So post some pics of yours with how you do do the camo .
  2. I picked these up monday but the bloke didn't have the small middle one so I need the missing bin does any one have a spar one all so the side lights for a uk model they are on top of each other not side by side like these ones are the bins now get in there way DSC02115 by Norbo Lea, on FlickrDSC02114 by Norbo Lea, on Flickr

    Your exhort angle

    mt exit is facing down and expels the soot over the side of the tank some people say it should be up others say rain gets in it that way . do any of you have pictures of how you angle yours . I have a new end can for my tank so will have to make an extension for it and a tip .

    Your exhort angle

    Thanks as you know my tank will be a little different and stand out from the crowed . Im fitting a Stainless steel race end can from a 1000cc race m cycle to my tank . The big silencer thats on now will be coming off. The main long joining pipe will be powder coated heat satin black as will the can and i will have to weld a longer tip on it to angle it out . i just wanted to know were to angle it so i can decide how big to make it . I will make a steel cover it so from the out side it wont look any different then the standard one but it will sound far nicer . i know a bloke who fitted one to his car just for a large and it sounded wicked ,. so with the flat 6 motor its going to sound very powerfull as its a straight threw race pipe .
  6. Ok so im replacing my 30mm with something more scorpion sized im making it so it will fire so not sure how far i should have it go in side . i will h ave 2 tanks to fit on there behind it has any one elce done this must be a few how did you do it . I was thinking ill need to put some kined of counter balance under it as well as the tanks in the gun gap . any advance ?.

  11. So this is what I traded my van for well my van and a couple of m cycles any way . This is how it looked before I got it home . DSC01944 by Norbo Lea, on Flickr DSC01943 by Norbo Lea, on Flickr DSC02041 by Norbo Lea, on Flickr day 1 I started to strip it down I removed all the side bins and exhorts shield and with a rubber malet fixed a few dents on the shield so it looks sweet now DSC02046 by Norbo Lea, on Flickr DSC02047 by Norbo Lea, on Flickr All These bins and heat shield will go of for powder coating the bins in crinkle coat satin black and shield in a smooth heat coat . When I get the tank back from Hatywood tanks who are going to sort out a few things inside for me ill remove the exhorts and get that hear powder coated as well and ill get some of the painted stuff in side silver powder coated as well like air ducting and so on just to make them all look nice and new . DSC02048 by Norbo Lea, on Flickr There were a few brackets like this one that held a side bin of that are rusty so ill get them powder coated as well its far better then zink plating and wont rust over time so when its done its done for ever. DSC02043 by Norbo Lea, on Flickr After removing the back bins ther was a hatch with what looks like and exhoust pipe coming out but it is infact for the rir intake when I removed the bolts and pulled it down there are 3 filters in there so I may well have to replace them at some point if needed. DSC02044 by Norbo Lea, on Flickr DSC02045 by Norbo Lea, on Flickr I removed the 30mm gun and its support If you look next to the main gun holl you will see a small holl that’s for a crappy little gun that no one ever has fitted so ill be fitting one from a Saber that have a way nice one DSC02077 by Norbo Lea, on Flickr I cant remove this rusting pice though I have removed all bolts and nothing moves but it needs coming out so I can get the center holl made bigger for the 50mm/ 60m gun ill be fitting . Ill all so be getting a custom flash breaker for the end something nicer looking then the simple trumpet fitted to the 300mm. DSC02078 by Norbo Lea, on Flickr There is not a lot of room inside not a lot at all infact once your in your pretty mush not going any were . So I striped everything out so when haywood tanks get it they don’t have to strgel to do the work . I want to make it as easy as possible for them and give them all the space I can . why stugel if they don’t have to . So I removed all the seats from inside threw the drivers hatch witch was simple once I removed the seat bace and seat pads and dropped it flat to the floor . Now the center pice with is for the shells is like a table and as i wont be firing any shells is just a large nuisance with no perpose so I removed that as well and it will not be going back in so that’s about 1/3 more moving space just in that 1 action . DSC02063 by Norbo Lea, on Flickr The problem with this is the legs are so long and with all the viewing stuff inside it just would not fit threw any hatch so I got the trusty hack saw out and cut in in half then it fitted thre a hatch no problem . DSC02064 by Norbo Lea, on Flickr So mow all the ordinance storage are out and seats there is plenty of room to work Inside DSC02075 by Norbo Lea, on Flickr DSC02076 by Norbo Lea, on Flickr DSC02072 by Norbo Lea, on Flickr So this is what I did day one of owning this tank . Ill give it a bloody good clean inside over the weekend and remove the large ring that the seats bolt to so I can get underneath and clean that down as there are bits and stuff every were as you can see. At some point I will make some better storage for the battery’s what they are in now are some crappy plastic things that are bigger then they need to be and very flimsy and brittle looking ill make them in alloy and line them with rubber . They will fit better inside and give a little more room as well . I think there is some fixing points as well so ill make a bracket on them so they can be bolted down. DSC02053 by Norbo Lea, on Flickr Theirs 2 of the buggers as well and missing from the inside is 2 more that I will need so ill have to do something for them as well . DSC02052 by Norbo Lea, on Flickr I took a load of pictures when I removed everything so hopefully when it come to putting everything back I can just look back and see what I took from were I replaced all the bolts from were they came dint make the mistake of putting them all in a tin LOL . So while its al hey wood I will be making the bigger gun and cleaning the seats and spraying them silver as the zink all pitting . They are not to bad but while they are out seems daft not to do all I can to make it as nice as possible . DSC02065 by Norbo Lea, on Flickr All stuff like this I will be removing when I get it vack from haywood tanks and powder coating and all bolts will be replaced with ST/ST and rubber like this top mount that’s looking a bit rough ill try and replace . I need to get some missing bins new cushions for the under side of the hatches and some covers for the frills on top of the engine . so ill bee making a list and looking out for this stuff . DSC02059 by Norbo Lea, on Flickr DSC02058 by Norbo Lea, on Flickr Im going to remove everything inside that does not and will not ever work so stuff like the night vision will be out as will anything else that just takes up space I don’t need decoration in side the turret id sooner have more space . For the wheels im going to do something like this not the same but some kind of alloy plate anodized black and machined back on the ends to give a blade look wheels by Norbo Lea, on Flickr Down the sides some have a stone guard and ill get some lazed up saying scimitar and 2 scimitars underneath I think it will look cool and add a little extra to it that no others have ill laser up some mud flaps holds as well as I don’t have any just 1 bent and mangled one that ill hammer flat and get copped. So ill finish of with the Paint work this is what I have in mined every one see is the same old boring green with black bits or sandy for desert camo . So other then the bins that will all be in crinkle coat the black the rest of the tank will be painted in satin black with a dark burgundy red patches with a thin green out line like in these pictures its called 3 tone disbursement paint DSC02031 by Norbo Lea, on Flickr DSC02030 by Norbo Lea, on Flickr DSC02029 by Norbo Lea, on Flickr DSC02028 by Norbo Lea, on Flickr
  12. Droped in at Haywood tanks today to drop of my super bright LED headlights with build in indicators and pick up the main gun stay in the turret , My intention was to machine the center hole bigger to 65mm as that the max size you can fit in the longer barrel support, but after a chat with Dale he gave me an option i hadn't thought about . ether machine the support as well and then fit a 90mm barrel as on the scorpions or why not ditch the support all together. So im thinking may be leave out the center boss altogether start the gun at the boss size which is a little over 150mm for say 3.5ft with 1.5 feet being inside and the rest 2ft out side then have 3 foot of 100mm welded to it and machine them so they blend in together then fit the flash brake wich will add a further 1ft to the need like on the pictures above of the paint im looking for you can see how the barrel is something like that . Think that will look ace once its powder coated black

    Tank mounted guns ????

    the ones above are air soft not paint ball sorry looked at so many guns now im seeing double . Think ill go for air soft so that way i get the looks im after but they actualy work and fire and my son and i can both have some air soft days out with them as well as mounting them on the tank . And beleave it or not some places let you take the tank to an air soft place and drive it about in the games see a picture on face book to day of a guy who did just that last weekend .

    Having recently been looking in to GPMG 's for fitting to my scimitar and having looked in this a lot decommission guns replica guns air soft and paint ball guns this is what i have found out . Other then the fast they most places advertise stuff they font actually have for sale , if you want a gun thats in a bright blue orange kind of aie soft gun you dont need anything just be over 16 if you want any kind of blank firing gun replica air soft or paint ball that looks like a proper gun in green black etc then you have to be a member of a club . Your local air soft club paint ball club or reenactment club . you will need a member ship card and a coppy of there public liability certificate to prove its a legitimate club . This is what you need to buy something . Like all fire arms replica air gun or what ever you can only go out with it in a bag even if its the car it must be in a bag if its mounted on a vehicle it all so must be covered while on the roads . You cant fire anything unless its on private property with the permission of the owner. Or at a show were every one on the land is showing arms as part of an event in this case its imply d my the nature of it being a show that you dont need individual permission to ether show or fire the arms .

Well if any one has anything them D&B ones are just silly money Both are paint ball guns so as well as looking nice on the tank my and my son could take them to paint ball game place and have a day out from time to time . problem is they are still £650 and £625 each ouch
  17. Norbo

  19. Norbo

    Tank mounted guns ????

    Bloody hell these people are driving me crazy the advertise there stuff like the paint ball place yet dont have them in stock . the other place make them to order and all so dont have stock so you cant go and look at anything D&B only do museum quality stuff as they say and they cost around £2500 . Actually with every place that says they have them advertise them Not 1 place actually has anything for sale . its crazy .

    Tank mounted guns ????

    well your looking £11 £1`200 for the simulated firing ones with lines and bottles . £a grand for paint ball ones and they are out of stock any so the 2 options are Browning 30cal or GPMG . witch one do you lot think is going to be best both are £325 Or this 1948 Bren gun its real deactivated not a replica but its £450
  21. Norbo

    Tank mounted guns ????

    The 30 cal may be better but its £900 it is cool but i wasn't thinking of that kind of money .i did fined a paint ball one for the same kind of money that was all so very cool and worked sounded good and did actually fire stuff
  22. Norbo
