TimberSurf - There was a programme about model railways way, way back around the turn of the 1960s on what was then the children's slot on BBC TV.

The premise of the 11' end to end run is an imaginary...

I have been searching on and offline for prototypes for my tank but the only example I have found is the very basic two elevation drawing Plate 475, p311 of Adrian Vaughan's 'Gre...
