Some think that Sir Pterry wrote fantasy novels.
A retiree built an eight-foot-long remote-control transporter lorry complete with a tank on it as his wife had taken up golf and he was “bored to tears”.
Roland Hopper, 79, used the controls to drive the lorry around his garden this week, though he said the tank has not been driven for some time.
The pensioner said he bought the 1:6 scale model kit to build a Sherman Firefly tank from British firm Armortek, after learning about them through his nephew’s friend.
Mr Hopper, who lives near Saffron Walden, Essex, put together thousands of pieces to complete the tank.
It’s probably closer to the truth that he wrote a combination of documentaries, satires and utopian insistence of how the world should be.
