My feed spring popped out from inside the mag on sunday. No biggy but worth bearing in mind that the mag shouldn't be overwound! It's now sorted with a pretty impressive quantity of JB weld. Apart from that, my '42 ran like a dream and I can't wait to sic it on the septics.

Apart from the obvious offensive tactics which we covered on sunday, we will also, by the looks of it, be mounting recce actions. We haven't really covered this, so, what I'd like to do is this. For the attacking phase/phases, I'm happy to lug the '42 and be a support gunner and give someone else a chance to lead. For the Recce patrols/sneaky stuff, I'd prefer someone else to take over my '42, so that I can take over as squad leader.

Let's face it, I doubt we'll ever see genuine WWII armour at a game so scratchbuilt stuff like this is a pretty good addition. I imagine once the gun is fitted & a coat of paint & markings are added it'll look o.k. It's certainly no worse than Oddball's Tetrarch IMHO!

Keep us posted on progress.

All the best.

John. :)


Well at least it will have sensible proper marking on it for a start. I could never see the point of building a UK airborne tank and painting it up as a nation that never had them.

(maybe i should work on a UK camo tiger iI :) )

As for letting the cat out the bag, i'll say nowt lads, i'm a member of PBI and an associate of KGSS so all i'm interested in is seeing good games.

If it doesn't get wrecked it might be fun to use it in one scenario at op lightning or St lo?
