So a Stuart can't squash a bush. Oh dear, time for a re-think.

Colin, Dave's only jealous, 'cos he didn't see your kit first! There are examples of Stuarts ripping out hedgerows on Google Images. You'll need to scratch build some simple 'prongs' for the tank front though.

If all else fails, you could always model it actually flying over any obstruction - "My tank can jump higher than your horse, buddy!"

Well that's novel!

But it does remind me Ron. You never did get to show us how you made your Japanese Kamikaze fly!

Hells bells. I would not want to be in that when it landed.

When the 'Dukes of Hazzard' ran out of Dodge Chargers........................

Well now. Tiny tank is now complete. Don't tell me the mud is out of scale - it's real. 1-1 mud, unfortunately Tiny Tank is 1:72. Antenna is courtesy of wife's' head.

The diorama continues. My PVA pond is taking some time to dry, it's working, just very slow. This might be the reason why PVA ponds are not so popular. All going well, I could be finished by the week end.

So I guess you're not going to build this in 'show jumping' guise then Col?
