as usual Doug looks great :thumbsup:

By the way, watched Prometheus last night, didn't think too much about the film but the vehicles were really cool, which ones did you work on?

Cheers

Cheers lads! :good:
Ieuan, I worked mainly on the big Rovers (8wd) but did a few repairs to the caterpillar quads too. Great fun to drive fast in Iceland! Plenty of room to get up to speed :yahoo:

Just have to say, I diddnt paint "Bea" my mate Martin did it ( bluebird tattoo, Watford) he is part Of Dog Company and was originally going halves with me on the T25, top bloke! :thumbsup: we looked through his book of nose cone art from WW2 then designed what I wanted in a scimilar style. Wish I could paint that good! :cray:

The bride came home with Prometheus a couple of weeks back - loved it! I like the way the ending is left open for a possible continuation of the story.

What are those Rover 8 wheelers based on Doug? :scratch:

Fingers crossed for Monday!

Hi Phil,
Yep there's been talk of next film, see what happens I guess. The Rovers were based on Tatra scud missile launcher chassis from Czech Republic , we had for drive able chassis but ended up making the 2 Tover transports and a Pick up version

Sailed through the MOT test! :grin: apparently the tester laughed his head off then was very happy that it is mechanically spot on! :good: , but my viscose fan is shot, I need a non viscose one to keep the engine cool anyway, when the fan was locked to pulley it stayed just over 80 but when let to free spin went to 120! anybody got one spare or have idea of supplier?
Cheers,,,,,,a happy Doug :yahoo:
