Re: What a Tanker at Millennium Con 2018 in Austin, Texas

See if one of the traders will sponsor you with some cheap tank/vehicle kits (if the players don't want them, they can at least give them to their children - and if they like them, then "pester-power" kicks in......).

It was SOP in the British army to have a Bren gun position (no crew) set up to cover the gun
Presumably the battery admin/comms staff would man this if things got a bit previous?

Re: scratch build water tower

I meant to add that you refer in your article to being lucky in finding an "internal lid" to make the water level in the tower. However, if you use an old poster postal tube (or buy a new one), you will usually get one of those on each end. Two towers for the price of one!

Re: Aircraft design rules and VTOL rules

Hi Danni, Back in the 1980s and 90s I worked as a press officer at British Aerospace at the factory where they made the Harrier, and in the course of that I spoke to a lot of former RAF and RN pilots who had flown it in actual combat, as well as many of the original test/development pilots from the ...

Re: Coastal Patrol - some questions

I did post some pics in the AAR section back in May.

Is the "messy" base in photo 8 supposed to be a ship s...

Re: Coastal Patrol - some questions

Ah, you're a bit far north for me I suspect (I'm about 30 minutes' drive from the south coast), although Deep Fried Lard is a possibility as my wife has family in Glasgie. And thank you for the reminder about the HMRC/RM ransom scam - I'd forgotten about that. Hopefully the pack will be sufficiently...
