Using the new look site

In March 2013 we swapped the website to a new CMS to improve the speed and functionality of the site as it has grown, but sadly had to close the forum as the software developers have not maintained updates. You can follow us via social media for news, updates and other content as well as join our new Facebook Group “Tank Nut’s” to share pictures and videos. You can also subscribe to our RSS feed for updates and new content. You can now find the modelling sections in the bottom menu of the website.
