Although my main interest is warships, my history includes tanks or rather
my old mans. I can remember when he drove the last Sherman BARV to its final
resting place as a target on the gunnery range in Malta. Also loaded the
last Churchill tank on a Mighty Antar in Sennelager.
I passed a Matilda in a scrap yard last week coming back from the deep
south hmmm wonder if it is for sale, having a real live 1:1 tank on the
front lawn to play with would be fun.
You DID say 3' foot and bigger didn't you? A cocky down the road has an
operational M6, had it at the local school to show off. Mind you another
cocky further down has a real live Mig 23 in the paddock. They won't let him
fly it anymore but. The air force don't have anything that can catch it.
Skyhawks is all they have, the deal to buy 20 F111's second hand has been
dropped by our present Govt.. Can't afford them. Boo Hoo.
Now to answer your question ( after that bit of intro to place my
credentials), It is used to fill Propane 45 into spray cans, dumps a can
load every 3 seconds so presumably is big enough. From memory it is about
4mm. It is filling liquid Propane remember.
Still OK ?
