Tony and his Raiper

Recommended Posts

After a small technical problem with the supercharger at the start of the week it was great to see it up and running and powering around the arena.

Great pic that last one!! Is the Rapier transmission / running gear a dedicated design or is it from another AFV?

Yep its based on the M548 which is based on the M113. Nice pics like the one of the old girl drifting:cool2: The fault turned out be a snapped:shocked: Supercharger drive shaft. Managed to find one local to Beltring with the help of Mitchell Diesels and ALD Automotive in Horsham. Its a hoot to drive but you can see burger:-X all with the doors closed.

It also got an award for best runner up Post war Armour.:shocked:

Tony,

 

when will you be adding a call sign and its army registration?

 

Nice to see you having fun with your kit, even if I could not make it.

Hi Craig not sure on what call signs to add! I have the military reg but only gave it a quick tosh over before Beltring:). I may even blast the whole thing and do it in Sand as there seems to be loads under the green(might have been over to the Gulf at some point).

About time you made another apperance over here:)
