Tank Museum Model Expo 2017

So, last Saturday (11.02.17) we went to see modellers show at Bovington Tank Museum.

Amazing place to present all armour builds and RC tank models. Plenty of great modellers, unfortunately don’t have the names to give credit to you guys – sorry. Whenever there was option to capture club name or individuals we’ve tried to capture it. Salute you master builders! We really enjoy it.

Below we present you some photos from this show.  If you see there your model please leave a comment and we will update descriptions. Feel free to share!

At the beginning it may be bit time consuming but later it’s worth the effort. I’ve done some research and decided to make simple two spiked wire.  Continue reading
