What fun to run about all those bridges and obstacles!  Then, too, there are some interesting tanks in those photos!  I am scratching my head about a few of them.  For example, in the seventh photo, what are the two on either side of the KT?

Thanks Chaps,  we are doing our best to get a good little group together here in the south east of England.

Herr Doctor , the one to the left of the KT is a scratch built Cromwell, and the one to the right is a Chaffee.

Thank you: I thought I had seen that Cromwell before, but I was puzzled by the Chaffee, never having seen a photo of one from above.  That must be a scratch-build RC model; that, or I have completely missed a mass-produced RC model or resin conversion.

I'm not sure where the Chaffee came from but it might have been an eBay find I think.  It is static at the moment, but the owner is pondering plans to RC it.

Hi Guys
The Chaffee looks a lot like one of Frank's (Fynsdad) creations, though without his usual pinup trademark. He runs the one man Sherman production line, a regular on RC Universe, RC Tank Warfare, RC Tank Regiment.

Yep I know Frank and his work, but this is not one of his.
