    Panther found in Ukraine?

    Yes, its the eBay "bootsale" app. Not much to go on with the advert though!

    Just in case for the people that know me, I now live in Germany! in case the above made little sense.

    Armour in Germany and the Law

    I know a few people here in Germany with armour. You are allowed to own it, and trade it, as many dealer pages will verify. Driving tanks on the road is not allowed, I discovered this changing my licence as I lost the 'H' class entitlement, as they do not have such a category. It would seem only the Bundeswehr are allowed to drive tracked vehicles on the road. The document is in reference to live equipment, not de-militarised. As for collecting, it all seems the same as the UK from what I can see, bar the EU specification on deactivated weapons. Also the sale of Reich goods is tricky, although not illegal, just illegal to show emblems from my understanding.
  4. Hi all, I always buy my paint from https://www.militaryvehiclepaint.co.uk as they always seem to get the shade I require, and paint can be very hit and miss to what you actually get , regardless of paint code. My question is this, with an enamel paint, such as Olive Drab, do you personally add hardener or just spray as is? I have success with both, I was just curious if I should always be adding hardener to these products to create a tougher more durable finish? Thank Paul
  5. XMOD are a fantastic company, I really do rate them. If you have the NSN they seem to have the parts! Keep up the good work! Paul

    Wanted : TM manuals NO.... TM10-1154 & TM10-1155

    Just did the same search. I think a few are dead links and the others take me to a repaid manual for a WC51.

Im after a few manual, which I know exist in the USA, but I cannot locate in Europe. They are for the Dodge WC38 TM10-1154 & TM10-1155 Can anyone help?

  10. I have a few feelers out in the USA now, and Belgium. I hope they come through. I wish I was as skilled in metal work as the Covell chap. He makes it look so easy! Maybe I should do a reaction video with me swearing and making a right mess of it all following his tutorial?

    Looking for a WC54 cab door

    I have one from a Dodge WC38, which I think is the same as the WC54. I shall have to check to see what side it is. It is not in very good condition, but would serve as a template or to be patched up.
  12. Hi Goanna, The actual picture was just for reference, mine is in unrestored condition. Gordon, thanks for the reply. Fills me with more hope, as I can explore more options for spares.
  13. Alas, I have and am trying those avenues. Fingers crossed
  14. Thanks for the reply. Do you have any experience with the fibre glass panels? I'm sceptical of how they will look on a military vehicle? There must be someone with a few in a barn/shed? Come on HMVF! We can do this...now everyone outside and check your sheds!
  15. Does anyone per chance have a pair of rear fenders for a dodge 1941 pick up? The art deco ones with the four raised slats/grooves on the rear. I'm also after T112 engine parts.
