Returning after a 12 year absence

Hello,
I've recently returned to this hobby after a 12 year break! Sorry if I can't remember anyone. Before, i was know as Vonrundstedt, I attended a few shows, one being held at the Mucklebrough collection, and my tank collection back then comprised of (but not limited to) T-34 ARV, Vietnam era Walker Bulldog, home made Japanese Ha-Go light tank and Russian Ambulance made from an Indiana Jones truck. All sadly gone now, though I'm hoping some pictures may still remain on here. I've recently finished the HL M4a3 Sherman, Torro Tiger 1 and I'm currently working on a Challenger. Looking forward to getting back into the hobby.

Regards,
Luke.

Welcome back, I remember you from a show or 2 back in the day - I think the last one was organised by Severn Valley MVT, somewhere off the M5. Lovely day on the Friday, ended up in a wash out on the Sunday...

Welcome back VonR2.0,

Those are some beauties from back in the day! I too take time off from hobbies. About every third or fourth year I rotate my obsessions. Firearms, militaria (though this remains as an almost constant), the sports car, and for now, RC tanks! :/

Good to have you with us!
Cheers,
Eric.

Hi there! Are you the same VonRundstedt who used to post on Hobby Havoc, too? That forum has been sadly quiet for some time now, but HermannBix is here full strength. This is such an enjoyable group, although given to using thick glasses, canes, sildanofil...

No mate, it’s not him sorry.
The HH one does occasionally look in here but only as a guest

Here's me, seems soo long ago now! I'm now in South Wales now. I've managed to find a few more pics of my tanks aswell :D . I thought they were destined to be a distant memory as they were taken before phone cameras were easily accessible.

Thanks for the ID help, HermanBix. VonRundstedt2.0: I would enjoy seeing new photos; I'd bet others would, too.
