  1. Hi Andy, don't know if it's in your price range but there is one listed on Milweb.net today P.S. no affiliation with the seller
  2. Jon, I continue to be amazed at the level of detail your are putting into this. I look forward to each and everyone of your postings. Cheers, Julian
  3. As always Great fabrication work. At this stage the only disappointment I have is that I won't be able to come and see this at a show near me 😞
  4. Apologies for the late reply, been off line for a few days. Thanks for the information that's certainly helped fill in some gaps 🙂
  5. Always looking to fill gaps in my knowledge. There is a trailer adverstised on Milweb as RAF Taskers Aircraft Recovery Trailer didn't mean much to me so I did a bit of googling. Only real links I could find were to Taskers producing the Queen Mary Trailer in WWII, but the add says this is a Post War trailer, is this just a late version of a Queen Mary (the name does at least ring some bells), or did Taskers manufacturer a newer version after the war. Sadly for the seller I'm not looking to buy, although combined with an example of the same type of Bedford in the pictures I think it would make a great exhibit for shows. It would be nice tolerant more around this company and the trailers. Cheers, Julian
  6. What I find really interesting is the state of preservation. Yes it's come up in lots of bits, the fact that the wheels still rotate I find astonishing. The material something metal is deposited in makes such a difference to the rate of corrosion.....
  7. Hurrah!!!!! fab to the the old girl out on the road. Brings joy to my heart 😀 There's clearly a big difference between what you say is 'really quiet' and my view - lol Seemed much quieter in the outside shots, than on the inside ones. Also the sedate and steadier ride doesn't match the interior footage 🤣 or perhaps you need to sack the camera operator. Congratulations on the fab thread, fab outcome and for the hard work in bringing ice back to the old girl. 👍👏
  8. Today the A34 heading towards Oxford bout 1 o'clock. What looked like a camel trophy towing a desert coloured WMIK. Anyone on here? Spotted a tidy series 3 and series 2 SWB slightly later, couldn't tell if they were military or not (passed to quickly) Julian
  9. Welcome aboard, lots of nice friendly people around here 😀
  10. Cracking' (or based on your back should that be creaking') job 😀 Although there's a lot to do, with the recent reinstatement of the cab and the hubs/wheels it must feel like real progress.
  11. sorry to hear you had to sell, but good news it went quickly - hopefully you weren't out of pocket as it was a recent purchase .......
  12. Hi Rob, just tried the link but youtube says this video is unavailable. 😪
  13. Kudos for the perseverance. Looking forward to seeing the video of the first roll out under her own power. Thanks for keeping the thread going it's great to see the results of your continued efforts.
  14. Hmmm, I think I would have at least another generation to go before the family is considered Scottish 😀 Although I am a celt of the dragon supporting kind 😉 Besides being impressed with the sheer engineering skill involved in your project I have also been 'gobsmacked' at times with the creativity involved in doing what you do on such a shoe string budget. That may be why you have so many responses looking at the possible options for track to try and find an option that can make this happen. If it gets to it I would contribute to a 'Go Fund Me' for the track.
  15. Hi 11th Armoured, Thanks for the info and the 'links' - yes pun intended 😀
