  1. Baz do you have any more pics/info on Duxfords one eg where and when it was recovered? I know Cyril G, Groombridge was mentioned as owning it in 1971 in Wheels & Tracks but thats about all. I had vaguely heard it had been found cut down and then rebuilt but I didn't realize that cut down example you pictured was the same example as Cyril's/Duxfords. Whilst gaining information for mine I am also trying to gain and note down as much info as possible on the other current survivors . As some old documents that came with mine list other examples that may be still in existence. which then means I can pass that on to the present keepers Keith Nice photo and a camo scheme I've not seen before, although I'm sure I've seen this photo elsewhere with other photos of the same vehicle, do you have any more? Baz Out of interest what is the Chilwell list? Also do you have a copy of the Chilwell list?
  2. I had found those but they are not view-able along with most of there Beaverette related items, so I had already contacted them hoping they would fix the website issues so they would become viewable, but no luck so far. The Standard Motor Club forum seems more based towards the civi side of things and rather quite, although I have posted this there to cover all bases. From my research this is a previously unknown example, there are 10 survivors that I am aware of at present, including my example. My one has been in use since the end of the war, including having been road registered since at least 1963. unfortunately no military history but the paperwork history that it came with stretches 40 years and is very detailed indeed, so it has plenty of provenance. There is plenty of work to be done as it was use on a private estate for the estate owners own quadbike come run around as such, this can be seen in the ebay listing and pics, but its all part of the fun. The only remains of the armored body is the front glacis plate, 18" / foot wells of the bulkhead and the lower sills, the rest is Kaput. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/1943-STANDARD-TRIUMPH-BEAVERETTE-EX-ARMOURED-CAR-VERY-RARE-RUNS-amp-DRIVES-LOOK-/201991551646?nma=true&si=Pxp8K33X%2BmXQTsfde5UsehZCvho%3D&orig_cvip=true&rt=nc&_trksid=p2047675.l2557
  3. Hi I have had a great interest in these vehicle for many years and had done quite a bit of research already, I had considered building a replica of a Beaverette but other projects got in the way. I was then fortunate enough to come across one available for the 1st time in 20+ years so snapped it up. So as the dream is now a reality I now need to crack on, hence my post on here. Does anyone have any photo's, information, manuals, parts suppliers, links to suppliers/sources of information etc, or parts relevant to Beaverette's as I now have one which I am in the process of restoring. Also manuals, parts supplies, or parts relevant to standard 12/14 and that were used on Beaverette's. Thanks Tyler.
  4. Hi Could anyone clear something up for me. Post 1997 standard car Licence 1954 Daimler Ferret Mk1 which weighs around 3.7ton As it stands is it legal to drive the Ferret on this licence? Also any other potential issues/pitfalls? Many Thanks.

  7. This doesn't cover the price issues but I think its relevant as only one or two have touched on this aspect. I personally got into the hobby through a combination of airfix, war movies and the tipping point was asking if it was ok to sit in a family friend Jeep to have my photo taken, and then hitching a ride to shows with said family friend in his Jeep. From there the rest is history. I personally let adults and children onto the WMIK and Snatch at every opportunity be that in a carpark shopping or at work or at the 40+ shows that I do each year (under supervision of myself and the accompanying adult and with a H&S notice at shows). Some shows the WMIK etc can have easily over 100+ people sit in it throughout the coarse of a day. My Footman James insurance covers me for upto £25,000,000, I pay the premium so why sit there with the doors shut and roped off paying a premium on a policy that I am not getting the full use of. Whilst I sit there watching potential newcomers/lifeblood to the hobby walk past unstimulated buy the touch, smell and experience of the vehicle. That is not to say I/you take a who cares approach, but you risk asses just like you do in every aspect of life and mitigate the risk appropriately. My cover is there as a safety net I don't intend for it to be used. I also think that allowing people to experience these vehicles benefits other aspects of the hobby and society in that they see and feel what people who have served and sacrificed have had to put up with and work in. I fully understand that some vehicles are to frail and unsafe to allow this type of interaction but equally if that is the case then there is nothing to stop owners from being proactive by speaking to people, firing the engine up etc and offering a ride round the arena if there's a spare seat or they see a interested party or a spark or interest waiting to be ignited. If due to my approach 1 person shows a interest or gets into the hobby be that as a owner or helper etc then I would be happy to know I've helped this hobby.

  11. Gpmg

    Try Chris Hobbs on facebook at https://www.facebook.com/Geartechcustompaint/ thats where I got my airsoft version for £425 posted. Its a m240b but only a few visual differences which can be sorted by fitting genuine GPMG parts. So much better than any replica version you can buy, plus if you ever sell it you have a wider market to sell it into. Hope this helps. Tyler

  13. Just a slight revive. Hi Clive do you have this document? As I have this type of vehicle. Its not a Snatch per se, they were built later around 1999, compared to the Snatchs that were built in 1992-3. They had slightly better protection and a few design changes such as the 4 large windows in the rear pod and a few other changes including a 300tdi rather than the 3.5 V8. Thanks
  14. So I went to stoneleigh and spoke to the W&P organisers. No one can leave the site at all on Saturday as public on site till midnight. You can only leave after 6am+ Sunday. Where all those vehicles camped parallel to the main road (marked black on map) will be moved to Kitcheners field, as that area will be for public car park. No extra toilets or showers in Kitcheners field to cope with the increase. Each booking will get a 10x10 pitch and be checked on saturday to see if exhibits still there. Exhibits will enter using same gate as 2015 and public will use same road a few meters down the road. No arrivals/access to site after 8am any day. Also for those wishing to drive to the stalls the only parking for MVs is the one near the living history/food court.
