Even though not a fully established Armoured club yet we are now sharing a large indoor area with the local 1\14 scale truck club its a sports hall and the armoured vehicles have one half. There are now a lot of Armoured guys attending so if anyone is interested I am happy to post any details they require.

Cheers

John

Too far for me but the best of luck. Please post some photos of the meets and make sure there are some tank transporters there too!

Oooh! Sounds like a good reason for a re-visit and run ashore in Guz - I haven't been down Union street or the Barbican in years :haha:

The club is on covid19 closure, Jonathan who runs the truck club has moved shop to a bigger one and better laid out. He runs his shop Nimrif rc Plympton, a very helpful guy where rc stuff is concerned. While the indoor club is closed I tend to use the old airfield site at Yelverton to run my 3 tanks and generate interest. Normally weather permitting I am there on a Sunday until my batteries expire, I often let the children observing have a turn. I work 2 weekends on and one off.

Hi there,
It sounds like you have a lot to contribute to the forum. Could I ask you to go to the Introduce Yourself thread and tell us a bit more about yourself and the local tank scene. I am sure it will be of interest to quite a few west country members.

Just maybe the club may open tomorrow as we are in tier 2. Will need to phone or speak with Jonathan that runs the club as to which part of the club is open.

Is this really complying with the guidance rules for tier 2, stay indoors unless for essential journeys? Why put yourselves and others at risk for the sake of waiting a few months to enjoy our hobby with others.

I know l sound like a kill joy, but this is not a summer cold bug is it? Stay safe everyone.

Remember if you attend to wear a mask, stay spaced. I have no idea how many will be there, so it may not be an idea to attend. You can ask Jonathan about the club, his shop nimrif rc is open Tuesday - Saturday. Saturday is an early closing day he is very good at rc stuff, he has been modifying a Chieftain tank for a few months, waiting to see the result.

I didn’t go tonight due to the fact I have x2 critical diseases, but even with them I worked from March through the outbreaks until I retired early December, I have a letter as a essential employee. It took 3 doctors to confirm I could go to work, the option to wear a mask was each persons choice, but the company provided ppe and hand sanitisers. Having been in the military and part of my job was the NBC cell, I taught my brother who achieved a pass of 98%, the highest anyone in his unit had attained.
My illnesses are probably Gulf War related, a lot of guys were ill when they got home, they were shipped out of the unit in under 24 hours, I was sent to another unit in the same town. Of course the Gulf War Illness doesn’t exist or does it, when there are very few Veterans left then they may admit that for some it does.
End of rant Stay safe, stay well
