  1. I have to admit I was one of the people that hated Folkstone, I went to the first one and that was it for me and since it moved back to Beltring I haven't been back. As for CMV I received mine yesterday, read it and I am now seriously considering cancelling subscription. I think the publishers should read fly past, packed with really interesting articles every month and then you read cmv full of adverts and badly written, poorly researched articles. Jon
  2. It's got to be a universal carrier for me, I was offered one when I was about 14 for £50 but mum wouldn't let me have it. One day I might get the chance again. Jon
  3. To be honest, not much that I could show you, I have been really busy doing other things that were more important or so I am told. The rest has been a good opportunity to plan the next stage, do some more research and reinvigorate the creative juices, after the Victory show, I shall be back on it. Jon
  4. Yes, a bit obvious but I liked Allo Allo. The inspiration actually came from a picture of Clervaux in Luxemberg in 1944 but all I could see on the sign was Café the other word below it was too small to read. Jon
  5. Thanks for the link, I have to admit that I am starting to loose patients with them. Jon
  6. Nearly finished, just the interior decor left to do. Jon
  7. I just can't believe how incompetent the DVLA has become.
  8. On the 8th August the DVLA very kindly emailed me the registration plate authorisation certificate for LXS 403 which of course is no good as the original is water marked and that doesn't show up on an email. Today I received the updated registration document with the correct registration number on it but the incorrect details contained in the original document haven't been corrected as promised. I have just come off of the phone from them again and they are now going to start an investigation and they will advise me if the registration number that is shown on the registration document is correct and why the other information contained in the document was entered incorrectly and the they will send me a new registration document...……..AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH.
  9. I have actually started a separate thread as my situation is really starting to get quite annoying. http://hmvf.co.uk/topic/40611-another-reistration-saga-and-a-warning Jon
  10. I have been posting my saga as part of another thread but I thought that this should maybe seen as a warning to anyone who has or is registering a vehicle. 7th August 2019. Well, having received the registration document about 2 weeks ago I have now received a letter informing me that they have authorised my application and that I should receive the registration document within 4 weeks, the registration number that I have been allocated is LXS403, and there is also the receipt for road tax, which of course is £0 but for LXS403 . Also enclosed is the official number plate authorisation cert for...……. wait for it...……….registration number LXZ403, of course you would think that that would have been a bad enough mistake for the DVLA to make but the V5C registration document that they have already sent me 2 weeks previously has yet another, different, registration number on it. I have checked and the registration number that is stated on the V5 has road tax and the chassis number stated on the V5 is correct for my vehicle but the authorisation letter also contains my chassis number for the other 2 registration numbers. Confused, me to. 8th August 2019 Today I rang the DVLA regarding the above, after a quite lengthy conversation I was informed that the number on the registration document LX 5403 was 100% correct, I then asked for a new payment receipt, as the one I had been sent showed LXS 403. The lady then put me on hold for some time and when she came back, she informed me that the registration document that I had been sent was in fact incorrect and the registration should have been LXS 403 and that a new correct document would be sent to me along with a new receipt and number plate authorisation. I have had to ring the insurers and change the registration with them but I think that in retrospect I have been lucky. Apparently this is now a common occurrence and for one person it ended badly. The person had registered a historic vehicle with the DVLA, he was sent a registration document and insured the vehicle using the registration number shown. He then had an accident and only when he came to claim was it discovered that the number that was on the V5 was incorrect, the insurer refused to pay out. I hope that my muddle is now sorted out but we will have to wait and see. Jon

  12. Thanks Phil, it just adds some extra interest and as the wife informs me, it keeps me off the streets. Jon
  13. Evening All, I have always wanted the barn where I keep my vehicles to be more interesting than just a storage barn, so I have tried to add some interesting vignettes. I have two bunker entrances, which exit into other areas. I have a small piece of 1940 Holland. and a 1/6 Junkers 52 with the little paratroopers jumping out' but an area that I have been left with needed something to fill it. The shape suggested a house, so as I had some wood left over from another job, I started. I made a couple of windows and let my imagination do the rest. There's still along way to go but today I managed to give the structure a coat of plaster. Jon
  14. Excellent pictures and perfectly timed as I was looking for some pictures of partially destroyed houses for a project that I am working on. Thanks for posting, Jon
  15. Yes indeed, I have had the little slip telling me that I can only get them through a certified vendor but I have never had to supply all that information before, I just get a set made. If it's for a modern vehicle then locally or if it's for an old vehicle via the internet. Still if that's what has to be done then I suppose...….. Thanks for all your responses and sorry if I have interrupted the original thread. Jon
