I will be there. If I can get my act together the Tiger will have the Arduino battle system working, and the artillery gun will be fully functional and set in an enclosure.

Hello chaps, are you planning on doing anything at Bovington a weekend this summer holidays? Like a show that you've done before.

We used to do the Bristol IPMS show, but they didn't have room for us this year. Bovington do a model day, and allow outdoors battlefields etc, but it's not something that we have ever thought about attending. It is more hassle than you can imagine getting members and tanks, and scenery to one place, and if it rains.... 8O

Oh, ok, thanks for replying.
That's a shame because I intend to go there one weekend soon with my grandson.
I guess I got mixed up with what shows you do.

Health pending guys would I be able to come to your September meet,? It seems so long since I last came, and would be so nice to see everyone again.

Kind regards Andy

Really enjoyed the run outside, hopefully we can do that again if weather permits. Will post up a vid, but You Tube is taking ages to upload tonight for some odd reason. I think that was the first tank meet I have attended where nothing broke or fell off!!

@Andy. Anyone can attend, just turn up, the next meet is scheduled for 10 Sep, but keep checking back in case that changes. It depends on how many can attend so we move the date if need be.

The 10th is looking like a no-go for me, but I can wait until October :haha:

A video of the meet, first time we have played outdoors, next time we will park the cars back up the driveway. Trying to control the Gorilla when I had forgotten to reverse the motor channels, and trying to hold the phone was never going to end well... :/
