    Panther found in Ukraine?

    highly unlikely to get out of the country without paying some 'fees' at the border!

    Armour in Germany and the Law

    service personnell and equipment is closely controlled and monitored and so much less likely to go awray, there is no control over privately owned vehicles, who as a tiny minority as easy targets. Either way, you can't predict or legislate against someone going nuts

    Armour in Germany and the Law

    remember the german pensioner with a running and driving WWII Panther IV (oh that by the way is probably worth millions) well, now they can legally confiscate that, and anything else worth having. strange how on one hand they are doing this, but sold off german army Leopards, Marders, and Gepards at knock down prices to anyone????????

    Armour in Germany and the Law

    they are, as the ad says, de-militarised to their current legislation. The armour has been cut and covered in thin sheet steel. with all the brexit smoke and mirrors, a lot of stuff is no longer newsworthy.

    check out boston dynamics' Atlas. bear in mind this is an old 2018 robot video that was released officially into the public domain consider this company has almost unlimited US military funding, then think what they're not showing you. frightening?

    Terrier, which has been in service for some time, has, I believe full remote control capability.

    abbottn drivers hatch covers

    Hi Ian, a good fabricator can make these in mild steel accurately, quickly and at a fraction of the cost of casting.

    8 Cylinder Torpedo Engine - Restoration

    like car and bike boxer opposed cylinder engines, a 4 or 8 cylinder radial 2 stroke will give a huge amount of torque, as it will fire opposed cylinders simultaneously and being 8 cylinder will be an almost continuous power stroke!

    8 Cylinder Torpedo Engine - Restoration

    amazing that this almost forgotten engine technology has been around for over a hundred years and never been developed. Think of the bhp potential from such a compact engine! Incredible to think something this advanced is built a a single use engine, made to last just a few seconds!
  14. genuine 1960 fully illustrated parts list for Humber I ton, and all variants including Pig, FFW, Guided Missile and many more, wiring diagrams, pull out A3 drawings, plus. In good condition. Full size weighty original book 310x225x50mm approx. £55 plus post
  15. case in point; 1985-bought my first tank, now what will it be? Sherman or cvrt scorpion. Both £10k both running. Went for the scorpion. Values now?....... Perhaps without the plentiful source of vehicles anymore at affordable prices (withams) we will see a drying up of the hobby with no new blood, no new stock, and only the financial elite cautiously displaying their investments. or is that already happening.....
