    The first one is not an M42, it's an M35 or M40!...
    It's a wasted trip baby. Nobody said nothing about locking horns with no Tigers.

    The pic's need uploading or this thread will soon be rendered useless. Any chance you could sort it out old boy?

    Thanks Ned for pointing this out to our new member.
    I added the photos to his other thread and pointed this out to him there. If he continues to post links only, I will be forced to close the threads that he does this on.

    Sorry I didn't realise you had added the photos "rbminis", I thought it had auto-added them. I'll be sure to post them in future.
