  5. Hello, I am Roger1954, from USA. Our new non-profit charity organization is looking to purchase any model CVRT to use as a parade and ceremony vehicle to honor all military veterans. Prefer a running, driving vehicle, and we can do paint, and some repairs. Maybe even streaker or shielder that we could construct a light weight tank body. I have worked on Jaguar, Rolls Royce, JCB vehicle and have knowledge of CVRT mechanicals. Thanks for your assistance.

    WW1 Tank engines.

    I recently attended a lecture by a friend who’s been researching the Ricardo-designed petrol engines used in British WW1 tanks. They’re fascinating things in their own right, but I’m particularly interested as they were built, amongst other places, at the Mirrlees Bickerton & Day factory in Stockport where I used to work. It seems they had at least one tank as a test vehicle that used to roam the surrounding fields that later became a golf course. Some friends of mine would like to acquire a complete Ricardo tank engine and one of them has written a summary of the five engine types to help locate and identify possible candidates. He’s agreed that I can reproduce it here in case anyone has a surplus engine lying around. Unlikely, I know, but unless you ask, you’ll never know.... It is known that in addition to those used in tanks many were used throughout the 1920s for various applications including generating sets, power for various agricultural implements (e.g. Fowler Gyrotiller) and for light locomotives. Peter Brotherhood listed the Ricardo engine ranges for sale as part of its product range in the immediate post war period and also produced around 300 tractors using the 150 BHP engine which were mainly sold for use in Australia and New Zealand. The knowledge base concerning these engines is gradually increasing as more information comes to light from various sources. One key difficulty is that unlike the first Ricardo design rated at 150 BHP, later designs appear to be devoid of much in the way of manufacturer identity. The first design had the makers name, e.g. “Mirrlees Bickerton & Day” or “Brotherhood” clearly cast into the sides of the bedplate. We don’t know how many names actually appeared, as some of the smaller makers may have received ready finished bits to assemble. This means that describing the engine range is difficult when trying to locate other remaining examples around the world. The five designs in the range can be described as follows and are illustrated by the five photos below in the same order: 1) 150 BHP 6 cylinder ‘heavy’ engine This was by far the most common engine in the series with cast iron major components and most if not all have the manufacturer’s name cast into the bedplate which is visible in the side view of the engine 2) 100 BHP 4 cylinder engine This derivative of the original design was not produced in huge numbers before the war ended. The example shown below was installed into an agricultural unit by Fowlers of Leeds and is now on display at the Leeds Industrial museum in Armley. 3) 300 BHP V12 engine This engine was produced as a means of extracting twice the power for later tank designs fitted with armour plating and like the 4 cylinder was not produced in large numbers before the war ended. 4) 225 BHP 6 cylinder engine This engine was a development of the original 150 BHP with quite a lot of design changes and was produced in reasonable numbers towards the end of WWI. We believe this engine may have TS4 included in the number stamped on the side of the engine but no clues on the manufacturer. There is a beautifully restored example of this type built as a generating set in an Auckland museum, see photo. below. 5) 150 BHP 6 cylinder ‘light’ engine This variant was a lighter version of the 150 BHP design using aluminium major components but retaining many running parts of the original design. The photograph shown below was only recently discovered showing the aluminium light 6 cylinder on a test bed at the Mirrlees works in early 1919.

    Mark IV Female, Ashford, Kent

    Hi I research British tanks and tank production in WW1, and I'm in need of some help in placing the Ashford tank in the Mark IV production sequence. To do this ideally I need to know its four digit manufacturer's number (which is not 1234 as painted on it today). It should be visible internally on a metal casting at the top of the diaphragm towards the rear of the sponson openings. (Not all Mark IVs have them in this position; I'm acting on a strong hunch that I've already correctly identified the manufacturer). Ashford Borough Council have been helpful in searching for any internal photos they might hold, but have only been able to provide ones taken from outside through the replica rear door. These don't show what I need because the castings face forward and would be obscured from this point. Entry to the tank is now prohibited due to health and safety concerns so I can't enter and take my own photos, and I'm not sure how a drone would work when surrounded by metal. I'm wondering whether anyone on the Forum already has internal photos of the Ashford tank that show this aspect. If so, I'd be delighted to hear from you. I'd also be interested in hearing from anyone who has ready access to the tank and would be willing to take some external photos of some very detailed points for me. Many thanks Gwyn Evans

  14. Today The Tank Museum announced the launch of its latest exhibition, ‘Fury’, sponsored generously by Wargaming. Opening its turret doors on the 20th of October, the exhibition tells the story of the Museum’s integral involvement with the making of David Ayer’s visionary film, Fury, which bursts onto cinema screens across the UK on the 22nd of October. The movie casts two of The Tank Museum’s exhibits: the world’s only working Tiger 1 tank and the eponymous Fury Sherman M4 tank, in a tale of overwhelming odds deep behind enemy lines in the last days of the Second World War. Taking centre stage in the ‘Fury’ exhibition will be the film’s armour plated star, the Sherman M4, alongside imagery and footage directly from the film. Other attractions include uniforms from the film worn by some of the stars, and numerous props straight from the set, all kindly donated by Norman Productions. David Willey, Curator of The Tank Museum, said, “Being a part of making this film was a remarkable opportunity for the Museum and we want to share that experience with our visitors. This exhibition will give an insight in to how The Tank Museum was involved in the Fury film, the issues we faced when working to safely use some of our historic collection and what it was like for staff on the set of a Hollywood movie.” To celebrate and acknowledge Wargaming’s continued support of The Tank Museum, the ‘Fury’ exhibition will also host various gaming stations where visitors will be invited to play World of Tanks. Using in-game tanks modelled on the armoured vehicles from the film, players will be able to clash against each other to recreate the very battles Wardaddy and his troops fight in the film within the Wargaming universe. This will be further supported by a video which intersperses film footage from Fury, with Wargaming’s tanks in-game to form a thrilling montage, overlaid with commentary by Richard Cutland, UK Historical Consultant at Wargaming. “Wargaming has a long history of collaboration with The Tank Museum, we sponsored the building of a classroom in the museum, we also contributed to the restoration of The Museum’s collections and now we are extremely proud to be working with The Museum again, sponsoring the making of this new exciting Fury exhibition, which is a perfect match to our game World of Tanks", said Rinaldo Andreolli, General Manager Wargaming Europe. The ‘Fury’ exhibition will open on the 20th of October at The Tank Museum and is scheduled to run until the end of 2015.
  15. I've noticed that when I'm driving on the road I feel i'm driving at a sensible even slowish speed.... however.... when i see video of me driving it ALWAYS looks as if i'm going twice as fast as I thought at the time !! Has anyone else experienced this ? I recently posted a video of a M4 High Speed tractor in the W&P arena and the driver mentioned the same thing. Now my theory is.... when you are driving one of these amazing complex often difficult vehicles to control... you are in a high state of alert... adrenalin is probably pumping round your body... there's a lot going on ... particularly when on the road.... you are concentrating hard.... looking out for hazards, other cars etc etc..... in this state... time effectively appears to slow down... you are functioning in a higher mode.... you feel things are happening slower... infact to onlookers... you are moving faster. It's all relative. Well that's my theory !!! Something went wrong...
  16. The whole museum will be taken over by model clubs and traders! Our own Tank Museum Volunteer Modellers will be displaying some of their military models and will be more than happy to share their modelling tips. Model groups attending who have completed an application form, will be applicable for 6 complimentary passes, additional passes will be charged at group rate (please contact the events team in advance). Model club members pay group rate on production of a valid membership card. Normal admission charges apply, and annual passes are valid for this event.

  20. HMVF Members, I am a Squadron Leader from the Royal Tank Regiment and am currently charged with organising a static display of military vehicles for the RTR amalgamation parade day, due to be held on the first weekend in August around the Tidworth area. David Willey at the tank museum suggested that I post on here and see if there is any interest in order to improve and diversify our display. Currently I plan to have all the modern vehicles from the Regt there: CR2, CVR(T), CRARRV, Panther and possibly others. The Tank Museum have kindly offered to lend us their Mark IV. I would be keen to hear from any members who own a vehicle that has previously been used by the Regt in its history; though I confess I'm only really looking at combat type vehicles and not B vehicles. Of particular interest to me would be: Saladins, Ferrets and Scorpion (I hear there is even someone with a Sherman out there, which would be amazing!!!) but I'd be wiling to discuss any offers. The day will consist of a parade, BBQ, various displays and fun fair type stands. If you are interested then please respond with the type of vehicle you might be able to offer and I can then discuss it further. Chris
  21. Morning all, I'm new to forums but thought I'd give it a go as I don't know where else to start. I'm looking for props for movie-set themed game zones at a multi-activity centre. We already have a big Wessex helicopter and a load of MOD ambulances, but need more props for new areas. Aeroplanes, tanks, any big stuff that could make an impressive centre-piece would be fab. I just need the hulk and would prefer non-working stuff as budget is limited. Please get in touch if you know of anything that fits the bill. Thank you, 07721 419405
