  1. Well done Tomo, always thought you were officer material.
  2. I don't want to hijack the thread, like 10 68 I well remember running BFT's through Rowcroft. The Eurotunnel track runs through where the gates used to be that connected the 2x barracks....you can't stand in the way of progress unless you want to be hit by a train!
  3. I look forward, with excited anticipation to the Thornycroft updates, and now that’s coming to a successful completion I would like to thank ‘Team Gosling’ for their tireless dedication and the many hours spent in the shed, and would like to wish you every success with the Peerless restorations. Never let it be said that Team Gosling allow the grass to grow under their feet!
  4. Hey Tomo, great to see the project is moving along. Shout if I can be of any further assistance. Shaun
  5. Hi Colin, I've not imported vehicles from Norway, but I have from the US, and would have thought the process is much the same. When you import your vehicle you will need to notify HMRC and pay any duties (usually a percentage of the fully 'landed' cost i.e. purchase price, transit insurance, and shipping). If you're transporting the Dodge yourself then it may only be the purchase price. Once the duty has been paid HMRC will issue a 'NOVA', you then need to get the Dodge MoT'd and send off the NOVA and MoT to the DVLA who will provide an age related registration and the V5. Until then most insurers will allow you to insure against the chassis number. I hope that helps. Shaun
  6. Very jealous, looks all together, great find...where did you find it and what are your plans?
  7. Good spot, there's also lots 619 & 620. Why are they going through Brightwells, I thought all MOD disposals went through Withams?
  8. I'm late to the party on this but thought I would share my views having attended W&P for the first time this year. Like LarryH57 I got there before 8.00 and echo his experience, the security guy was friendly enough but the booking in was a shambles. I know of one MV that broke down in the lanes, no doubt caused in part by the constant stop/start in the searing heat. Once I was in I was totally awe struck by the sheer size of it. I was only there for two days and didn't know where to start. As well as the usual WWII reenactors, there were the US Navy Seal's (pity those guys in full body armour in that heat), Camp Bastion and Black Hawk down. Some of the other highlights were the Red Ball Express MT, the WW2 German 'camp' complete with 2x Sd Kfz 251's! One of my favourite scenes was the WW2 RAF reenactors being inspected, and one of them being marching off in double time (presumably for a show parade in the guardroom). The armour parading around the showground was a little dissapointing, but the guy's in the Russian BMP-1 (actually a Warsaw Pact variant I think) were having a ball doing 360's in a ball of smoke! I didn't know what to expect when it came to trade stands, but I thought there would be more MV parts sellers, but if you were in the market for uniforms from WWII to the present day you were in luck. I picked up a 58 pattern poncho roll holder and a long jack handle for my LWT from Phil Bashall, who was happy to chat and gave me some useful contacts which should help push my 127 Rapier resto along, so I can't grumble. As for the entertainment, the memory of the Elvis singing Thin Lizzy will stay with me for a long time. I'd been warned about the ablutions, but I got up early for a SSS in the brick toilet block. During the day I carried a 1/2 litre water bottle and kept filling it up as I went along, I drank countless litre's with no ill effects. I was there with the Military Lightweight Club, and attending W&P was as much about meeting some of the people from the forum who had helped and inspired me to finish my LWT (it was also great to be part of the Guinness record attempt). Would I go again, if I was going with friends or as part of a club you bet. Now where can I buy a Dodge WC for £30? Which incidentally was the price of my exhibitors ticket!
  9. I recognise that Challenger 1, on tour at W&P 2018. Great looking Snatch, kee p the photos coming. 😉
  10. Jon, don't lose faith in the forum members. The speed and quality of your Morris restoration is very impressive, keep up the good work.
  11. Steven, if you're looking for inspiration for the rebuild check out Ep6 of Ultimate Restorations where they restore a 1927 Ahrens Fox fire engine. It's on PBS America www.ultimaterestorations.com/the-ahrens-fox/ Shaun
  12. Team Gosling, I don't have access to valve timing diagrams, I'm not qualified to offer advice, but I can say thank you. It's like reading a good book you just can't put down, I can't wait to turn the next page. Congratulations on getting the engine running, I hope that's giving you a lift that will see you and the Thornycroft on the start line for the London to Brighton - Good luck
  13. Tony, take strength from the fact that all of us who are following this thread are willing you on. Already looking forward to this Easter's updates. Keep up the great work.
