    As used, I seem to remember in the forum's Number One film, "Where Eagles Dare", against a Pelaton of Germans on BMW's!

    Just tightly strung wire across roads mate, intended to remove the heads or wound occupants of open-topped vehicles, who would be unable to spot them in time to react.

    Pottered onto HMVF and saw this quite superb looking 1/14th Matador in progress:
    Radio controlled MATADOR

    Some people are just too talented - beautifully detailed stuff.

    That strange metal stuff, is to cut wires stretched across country lanes I believe.

    Oops! I only saw the first page and didn't notice that this had been answered. It was probably intended to chop the heads off motor bike despatch riders, or rather to give them a concern and make them go a little slower. Probably only used when one side is retreating fast.

    Armortek produce some great model tanks.

    Glad I found this old thread, forgot about the vonAbt website.

    Son been out in the garden again with a few of his new second-hand figures.

    Here is an Armortek 1/6 scale Centurion (Vietnam era) built by Stephen White: almost impossible to tell from a real one but then this chap is a genius model builder. Search the Armortek site under 'Centurion' for further details and look for the thread with about 250000 views!


    I must tell him to get those tracks tensioned!

    Stephen White, who I've met several times, is a perfectionist and he's recently replaced the original light with an even brighter one. The Centurion is an absolutely brilliant build - you must check out his Centurion thread on the Armortek web site - with lots of fine details added to the basic Armortek model. I'm now looking forward to him completing his next build which is of my late fathers Comet tank 'Celerity'.

    The next logical step can only be a working gun.
    Sturmmorser, AVRE etc. Things with a substantial projectile..

    In the case of Stephens Centurion, he has used what I believe are actual recordings of the main gun firing, with scale recoil and with smoke to boot. He has also equipped this tank with real life recordings of the actual crew in action in Vietnam and with those crew members also being involved in what has been an amazing project taking several years.

    Used to see some of the Armortek gear at Beltring.
    The noise generators are impressive. Jumping out of the way thinking something real was behind you, enhanced by them being big & heavy enough to create real ground rumble.
