TOPIC: Classic Brits but not Aircraft

Classic Brits but not Aircraft 5 years 3 months ago #28470

Mostly as I'm getting to grips with my new camera but also as I haven't posted shots of these before here are some non flying classic Brits.









The camera is a Nikon P6000 I spent a lot of time choosing it as I wanted something with the control over exposure and focusing of a DSLR but without the size and weight. I've not had the chance to manually focus or set aperture since my Olympus OM2 which I still own but never use. :unsure:

The Chieftain is by Airfix, the Valentine is a lovely model by Italeri and the Mark IV by Emhar.

I believe Phlash has commanded each of these vehicles in his time. :lol:

The Cheiftain is one of my all-time favorites(yes I know,crap engine and gearbox),
I'd love to get my paws on a 1/16th rc one.

One of the blokes on RCTankwars has thrashed an Aussie Cent out of an HL
Pershing,but I don't think a Cheify would come out of one.
If it would though,I'd have a Berlin Brigade jobbie.

BTW,the Tiger's in bits again,not broken but having some strengthening work done
on the lower hull.
It flexes a bit(crappy Chinky plastics),so fitting some support bracing will help
the suspension to work better and lessen the chances of throwing a track.

I think the Chieftain's a good looker too.

I believe the Airfix model (as is common with Airfix) is of a prototype or pre-production model and the production ones had some differences.

I've no idea what the differences might be though.

I hope Sean will tell us . . . . . If he's still speaking to us that is.

I've sat in a wreckage of a Mark IV... I was told it was hot, noisy and one couldn't see a thing, once inside.... Great models Jon... Yes the chieftain is a great model. I even think it was one of the first tanks I did build.

I heard a description of being inside a MKIV and it sounded absolutely horrible.

Probably better than being on the outside of one during WWI though.
