The Humber Pig
« on: June 18, 2011, 11:04:08 PM »
From Sloppy Jaloppy, what do you think of it?
It dosn't look very detailed but that might be the pic.
I used to be with it, but then they changed what it was. Now what I'm with isn't it anymore and what is it seems weird and scary.

I think they are pretty cool, good castings.  I think they could use big knobby tires, but that's just me...
They call me "Point Cow"

The front bit looks a bit to long to me.

From the photos I've seen, the nose doesn't look overly long on the model.

We were driving one of these on a paved road which was very bad indeed and managed to get the Pig into the ditch. Took us hours and a big crane to get it back on the road again.

I was told they once tried to fit a turret to a Humber Pig once back in Northern Ireland for a support gunner, apparently though everytime they turned a corner it kept trying to fall of.
