I'm still around

I'm being a bit quiet on the military front at the moment, mainly because I've been undergoing some medical procedures involving a part of the chest, and only now are the bruises gone. Then after an Easter trip to the York model railway exhibition I came down with a stomach bug, where the taps at both ends of the body appeared to want to empty every thing inside. Still on a water diet, but feeling better, so, Alan, your query will get worked on soon.

In the meantime, I came across this on the 'Fiddlers Green' website, thought you might enjoy it.


  1. Fascinating! Curious about this I looked it up: a gliding T60 - the Russians actually built one and tried it out. As you might expect, it didn't work, but the reason it didn't work comes as something of a surprise. On the one and only test flight, the glider glid very well, and the landing was fine. The problem was in the drag on the towing aircraft, which had to ditch the glider early to avoid an uncontrolled contact with the ground. What a cool idea, though.

    I had a bit of a look at weird tank designs historically. Some are stuh-range!

  2. Glad you are feeling better,give your body time to recover and take care...

  3. Unusual and very, very nice!

  4. Very creative! Keep up the good work.cheers/Peter
