  1. Hi guys Had an interesting conversation this weekend about current tank values and would be really interested to get your take please. So, what would be your estimate of the value of the following tanks? Chieftain Centurion T-55 Leopard Sherman Cromwell T-34 Huge tanks Cheers Graham
  2. This weekend members of the French army reenactment group started work on a rare beastie indeed. We will post up pictures of the restoration as we progress. This is a mortar carrier variant of the widely used AMX family of vehicles. It has sat outside in the holding area for a while.. gathering rain water.. But now its entering the workshop for some tlc. When purchased it came in a batch of stock standard vehicles, but soon we noticed it was slightly different in build and shape from the other vtt we have, so after inspection we can see it was originally a mortar carrier, that has

  7. 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.
  8. I've recently had a few jeep bits and pieces turn up and in amongst them was this. It looks like a visor to a tank or armoured vehicle can anyone identify it there are stampings on one one of the arms and plate A- 250330 and A-250299 thoughts...
  9. Thought these two were quite interesting, a lot of the footage is of Andy's CR1 near Rugby. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ACAzVWFoZHA&feature=share
  10. 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 hel
  11. 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

Visitors will have the chance to find out how crews work and fight together, conceal and live with their vehicle. There is also the opportunity to sit inside the Chieftain Main Battle Tank and an original First World War Mark IV tank and find out more about how these machines operate.

  16. 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 centr
  17. 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 o

  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 I
