    Gotta love the Fammileureux Utility B, always think they chose a bloke that matched the shape of the machine. ;) (vickers licensed design).

    Love the tracked bike; I've Never seen that before, caption a little confusing, is that a model on the right? looks like it.

    Since the Minenraumer's cropped up again I'll add the mechanical mule:

    And, of course, the beautiful Landrover Centaur, one of these rare beasts has recently been acquired from Iraq by the Dunsfold collection.:

    Should have checked, after all, nearly all interesting AFV pics come from TANKS! these days don't they ;)

    Got to echo the halftrack comment too, great stuff. Only just finished an m2a1 kit and that picture's making me go 'hmmmmm, should I get another?'.

    I can read enough Swedish to recognise 'pansar' as representing where my interests lie. ;)
    Looks like that excellent site is being translated.

    More on mono-wheels here.

    Excellent and lucid site, the Transport section is fascinating and most appropriate to some of the strangest vehicles ever thought of.
    I'd certainly never herad of Gyrocars, I can see why people persued them as it sounds like such a good idea before the real world, physics etc. begins to interfere.
    Gyrocars
    (Gyrover is fascinating)
    Rocket Bicycle. !!!!

    Just putting Boston's peculiar unidentified machine from 'name that vehicle in here so I can find it more easily:
    [​IMG]
    It's got 'Scorpion' written on it.
    We think it's British.
    It seems to have had an outboard motor.
    It definitely qualifies as a 'strange vehicle'.
    (I can't even work out how the wheel arrangement works...)
