Tonight I'm test driving this little beauty.

Thought I lost these, just found them again on one of my old HDD's.

The Lithgow Arms Factory in NSW Australia has been making weapons since 1912 and still going. They had a rail line for shipping the weapons (Now disused) and two anti-aircraft batteries protecting them during WW2.

I took these photos of the Lithgow Heavy Anti Aircraft Gun Stations Battery A

If you've got any more, you should post those in the Modeling thread. Really interesting those.

Don't have any more of A Battery. I've got a few photos from the exhibits in the Arms Factory Museum itself, B Battery (no artillery, bunkers are falling apart) and the old Lithgow airstrip.

Location and many photos taken by people online if anyone is interested.

Google Maps

EDIT: Type of anti-aircraft gun shown in photo

QF 3.7-inch AA gun - Wikipedia

Had to do a batch resize to get the photos small enough for the ARRSE website to take, here's some photos from inside the Lithgow Arms Factory museum

Got ferry over to Rousay, not sure the helipad is big enough.

You'd be surprised at some of the small LZs these SAR jockeys will drop in to and pick up from...
