I will do a single limited print run - these are offered at cost from the printer @ 27 GBP each. Postage and Packing extra. If you'd like a copy, then the deadline is Wednesday 24th Jan 2018. Send me a PM if you are interested and have not responded to me anywhere else! Cheers Tim

    Not sure getting permission to dig will be so easy... I can see the locals not being too happy with you wanting to excavate a large hole in the side of their flood defences... especially given what happened last time there was a hole! Good luck though! Tim

  6. Anyone want to buy a tank or tank spares?

  10. Am looking for this Engine "Emergency Stop" button assembly for my Firefly restoration. I understand this is a British Army modification - not a standard Sherman part - so may well be straight off some industrial plant equipment used at the time, rather than specifically a tank part. Any unit in any condition would be excellent - or loan of one to consider having it copied. Please send me a PM if you have anything which may be suitable. Cheers Tim

  12. When did your wife or partner admit defeat?

    Correct - specification was just... "oooh... a 17pdr would be lovely..."
  13. When did your wife or partner admit defeat?

    Probably when she suggested I buy a 17pdr because her grand-father served on them during the war. Though I think she didn't expect me to get one with tracks.
