    Love the outline!! Remember the Northover Motto "WE aim to please!" and it will certainly be a pleasure to "kill" this one. Well done Russell. See you soon

    Indeed it is onboth sides. I just have to find a wy of making the thing stand upright as it is towed along without tipping over! I've also drawn in some detail on both sides. since taking the photograph.

    Can't wait to blow it up but I do have these destructive urges!! Well done Russell. The Public loved our last "tank Kill" and this one must be an even better attraction. The Northover has certainly moved on from our first idea of just being a replica for display.

    As I said King Harold, once I can suss out a way of stopping it tippin over, we should be in business! But wae cannot rest on our laurels; I heard on t'grapevine that the Haworth lot have had delivery of their Nothover and it fires, too! So we will have to keep one/two steps ahead of them...

    Well, th Haworth lot already had one about four years ago but it was just a solid lump and didn't do anything but look ok and the barrel lenght was wrong, anyway.
