    The Firefly just takes my breath away......a truly magnificent tank. And the paint job on that Pz IV is superb.

    Default The 'Tortoise'........

    These next few pics are of the beast known as the 'Tortoise'. It really is a helluva hunk of metal!
    This is the first time it had run under it's own power for sixty odd years and the only one in existance (if I remember correctly...?)
    It only managed one circuit of the track and even then it was a little touch and go as to whether it might break down.......

    Up to date with more modern armour now and a Challenger II main battle tank doing a few circuits of the arena followed by an AS-9O Self Propelled gun and finally by an awesome piece of kit, the Trojan Armoured Engineer Vehicle......
