The crew is back with some new vehicles and the Photo report is at least partially in. Enjoy!

I see that a Sheridan broke a track at the event. Getting track link replacements might be difficult since that model is still pretty new unless the kit included extras.

Nice to see some of the Calif. folks made it. I might try for a spring trip down there again.

Kit has extras. The vehicle moves very fast OOB and over our hard ground lots of tracks break. We had a brand new HL Leo 2 Metal track break in the first 20 feet of driving. We have made improvements and eliminated as many of the little rocks we can to save the vehicles!

The Tiran 5 barrel was purchased from AFV-MODEL.COM about 7 years ago when I got the T-55. Definitely a shelf queen! I do not think it is available anymore?
