  1. Thanks for all the pointers chaps. I'll follow up on all these leads and pieces of advice and let you know how I get on. Cheers.
  2. Hi folks. What would be the best means for somebody based in the US to source an UK ex-mil Land Rover Defender? I seem to remember that such items were sold off at auctions, but it’s a long way to come to be potentially outbid. Is there a website where you can now bid on such things? I’m a British ex-serviceman now settled in the US. I’ve been looking for a Land Rover Defender 110 for sale this side of the pond, but they are pretty thin on the ground. So shipping one over might be an option, especially given the current exchange rate. If anyone can point me in the right direction it would be greatly appreciated. Also, does anybody have any idea how much I should expect to pay for an ex-mil Land Rover? Thanks in advance for any pointers.
  3. I found this article interesting. USS Ranger was the aircraft carrier used to film Topgun, amongst other films. Sold by the US Navy for 1 cent. But her final journey is quite impressive..... http://wtkr.com/2015/04/13/drone-films-the-uss-ranger-on-her-final-journey-to-the-scrap-yard/
  4. Hi everybody. I've always had an interest in all things military. I served in the RAF for 10 years often found myself working with our sister services. I'm a big fan of the museum at RAF Duxford and the RAF museum at Hendon. Looking forward to learning more in the forum. Cheers.
