Thanks for all your compliments, I will pass these on to the other half of this project; Mark Cornwell.

Tim, The tracks were cast at the Buckely Foundry in Cheshire (now closed).

Tony B, Whippet !!!! err no..........

Bedford Boys, It was built from drawings taken from the original one in

the Tank Museum, it is 100% diamentionaly correct.

This really is a work of art. I am astonished at the level of workmanship in this machine. Utterly stunning. Were these steered by use of levers? What sort of speed can they travel at?

There will be no shows at all.

The whole project is up for sale, just finishing the words for the advert.

Hi, the original poster has an ad on Milweb under the name British Military Vehicles and there is a picture of the Carden Loyd Machine gun Carrier on the ad.

Worth using the details to contact?
