      On Saturday night I ran a small group light painting workshop at a place called Tank Ride. An amazing place where all vehicles are operative – 6 Centurion tanks, including a working bridge laying tank, an Alvis light tank, Stuart light tank, amphibious vehicles, rocket launcher, scout cars – simply amazing. And you can ride in virtually any of them – a must if you are even in Queensland, Australia.

      Anyone know how hard it is to light a centurion tank late on a dark night?

      Very cool! A couple of years ago my wife gave me a tank driving, machine gun shooting, experience for my birthday. It was SO awesome! I got to crush two cars with a tank I was driving. Fabulous!

      Agree with the above David, In my younger days I did subcontract work on heavy military vehicles on a number of locations and though I didn’t work on them I got to drive as well as fire live rounds from some classic tanks, a T23 Sherman, M18 Hellcat, and a M46 Patton. They were all non active combatant vehicles at the time and used for training exercises but were still cool as hell, there were some Abrams tanks present but they were off limits to civilians. The Sherman, which was fully functional, I was told was in General Patton’s armored division and had been used for training, but had never seen Europe, though it did participate in several victory parades after the war.
