Hi Colin,
I had to visit the Tank Museum this week and spotting the Vickers MkVIB I took the attached photo which may help you a little way, when making the smoke launchers.

regards,
Richard

I have made those dischargers in the past and have drawings if needed.

Thankyou James, Thank you Richard for the photo and Adrian the drawings would be a great help. While I am on the turrets I think it would be a good time to make them as well.

I have been doing lots of small unseen jobs to the turrets and bolting the ball races to the top of the hulls.

No sooner you start a job in the morning the days gone Some days you just don't appear to achieve much for the hours put in.

Hi Col, spoke with B, he's more than happy to provide two systems for each tank. If you have his number , give him a call to discuss requirements.
