Excellent work all round Chaps.

There's something uniquely satisfying about running a vehicle that most ordinary citizens think ought to be illegal.

Just the job for keeping me motivated on my current project.

Well done, Richie - a great achievement!
Came across this little collection at a rally in Aberdeenshire last month. I mentioned your project to the owner of the carrier - he was very interested - and suggested that he take a look at the BBP forum. I took a couple of iffy interior shots and will email them if they are of interest. As for me, I rather fancied the jeep with the .50 cal. :twisted:

Just want to be the first to congratulate Rich on getting Cinderella to the ball - the baby tank leaves for the show tomorrow - to say have a great few days with all those fellow 'tankoraks' (Mike's new word) and that it's been great fun and a privilege to help out here and there.

Have a fab time, matey...

Have a great time Richie! The carrier looks great and I am sure it will gain many admirers at the event.
