  3. Perhaps there should be another post on useful terms heard when buying a vehicle; 1} They all make that noise. 2} They make them like that. 3} This should be in a museum it is so rare. 4} Vickers didn't make their machine gun mountings the same, they all differ....

  6. The wickerwork basket effect on the Crusader AA is also note worthy. I don't recall seeing anything on Zimmerit on British tanks in action, but there it is well spotted.
  7. Look, listen and take heed, the program starts at 10pm until 11pm
  8. As used on Panther Ausf A & G and Tiger, mid to late I and all II.
  9. Was there not something similar in Classic Military Vehicles a year or so ago? If I recall correctly it was built on an original chassis.
  10. The best way to solve the problem is visit a foundry and ask the experts. Modern SG cast irons are much better than the early CI. the can bend and twist whilst not snapping. The same goes for the casting design ask at the foundry, they will also put you in touch with pattern makers. Be prepared to drill out the castings for the track pins, it can be done, I've done it.
  11. You need to be a contortionist of small stature to fit in the thing let alone move about in it.
  12. Unfortunately the only option on TV is 'Combat Dealers' which in the true meaning of the term Hobson's Choice is why I put up with it. What the subject needs is someone with the gravitas of the late Raymond Baxter such as the likes of David Fletcher or David Willy Here proper full length TV programmes could be made as opposed to the 5 minute internet ones they present at the moment. No longer would we be subjected to a presenter starring into the camera with the expression of a man desperately trying to hold on to an obstreperous stool. Tonight I have a choice of Combat Dealers or Dan Cruickshank's Monuments of Remembrance on BBC4... If I was a gambling man I would watch horse racing I wouldn't watch Muffin the Mule prancing around on the screen and the same should be true with our hobby.
