Teacher at school made an injection mould for tank tracks which were very roughly 25x40mm, does that count?

Well Gary if you were a gunner on Chieftains you weren't very busy then, those bastard things spent more time broke down than running. :barbershop_quartet_

Not my tank, they were old though, came into service in about 67 and were still in service when i left in 95.
I did like the Chally though, changing an engine over night in the rain was fun.

Well Iíve never been in a tank, I probably wouldnít fit through the hatch lol plus tanks are big targets so I think Iíd rather be a REMF pushing buttons and blowing shit up from another countryJ. I was watching videos on YouTube about the RipTide tank

6811

and it was pretty detailed , they designed a very simple but highly effective track and train system which Iíll attempt to miniaturise for a project later on, quite frankly itís cheaper to buy the alloy upgrades from ebay than set it all up myself. I have some FPV equipment I want to install on my Pershing 1/16th and try and remote drive it, just to get to grips with the electronics, then I want to use the CNC to make a TROV tacked Ė remote Ė operated Ė vehicle Iíve seen some bog standard tracked chassis and the cheapest one for the size I want to make is a bout £2000, so sod that Iíll have a bash at making my own.
I see a Centurion tank everyday as I drive past Leyland,

6812

if they were built anything like the cars they made Iím surprised they ever actually started ! I drove a 6 month old Leyland Road Train once which set on fire at Fleetwood docks, I never drove one again.

The Cent was brilliant, one of the few tanks that can do a full neutral turn.
We used to get them going that fast in a neutral turn the apprentices used to throw up all over each other and once one starts they all yodel.

Does crew on an M60A3 count? Loved those and yes you could do a true neutral 360 no problem in them. My commander (the company XO) loved it when I was driving. As I could get us places that they said wouldn't go. Yeah had to be careful over certain terrain as they would through a track way to quick. Bore sighting them was a pain in the back side, but I do have to admit that the trust and teamwork you get on a track is hard to find anywhere else. I left the unit due to moving just as they where getting the M1's in which was a bummer as they where getting the A1 variant which according to some friends really had functioning turret stability at speed.
