  1. It's a brilliant thread Thanks for the photos!
  2. Oh wow, lot's of different stuff.. Not in the best of shape mostly though, could do with some more shelter
  3. Thanks for all the replies! I think the Ukrainian T-34/76 is a bit out of reach (though very cool to see!).. I've mailed them with the options I've found so far, including the eBay link
  4. Nope I do know of one near here in a private collection.. But I'm unsure if they are selling it.. I will pass on his info though.. maybe they can talk to him...
  5. I know them, but I don't really trust them much
  6. So, someone I know approached me, knowing I had a military armored vehicle and wanting to know where to find a T-34/85. Apparently her husband really wants to buy one. I did some searches around, but the usual places don't have them. Anyone know a good place to find them these days? Preferably in Western Europe, but Eastern is fine as well
  7. GAZ66 one will work, got one of those on mine as well I can recommend this seller: https://www.ebay.co.uk/sch/kesovagora/m.html?item=171649948040&rt=nc&_trksid=p2047675.l2562 Send him a message and he will have one for you quickly..
  8. The manual you are getting has equivalent oils etc as well in it
  9. Oh, for those interested in learning about when your BRDM was made: https://www.drive2.ru/l/464487313838178617/?utm_referrer=&fa821dba_ipp_uid2=RcWc41FSsAiKqFbl%2fs7SnK34wQQ6Xy6f%2bPj7%2b9w%3d%3d&fa821dba_ipp_uid1=1512821071714&fa821dba_ipp_key=1512821071715%2FzSYXzZ5mK07mN9rGFJlPPA%3d%3d Mine is January 1986, made at the Murom locomotive plant.. (The hull atleast :))
  10. Can't say that I remember it happening.. It's been in storage now for 2 months I think.. Won't be going again until I have to go for MOT in february so can check then. I had it leaking quite a bit when I had the wrong fluid in before.. But that all stopped once I purged it as much as I could and put the proper fluid in.. And while we are at it, here is a picture of it :-) Still need to repaint it..
  11. Both this thread and your fabrication talent are excellent
  12. It all depends on what era you are interested in I suppose.. I've always collected Soviet/Russian military gear and never had an interest in WW2. So when it was time to buy a vehicle I got a BRDM-2, which is an armoured vehicle for half or even a third of what a "common" Willys jeep is going for.. So in my mind I have the rarer vehicle :cool2:, which is an armoured one to boot! With recent or current surplus vehicles like that it's still doable to buy them.. If you want to go WW2 it gets quite a bit harder.. TL;DR: A Jeep isn't the only military vehicle around.. Prices for those have gone crazy.. Looking into other era's (Cold war for example) is always a good choice
  13. Mine only has one welded plate next to the driver's window. That number is X01TT001653 It has quite a few of these styles of numbers around the vehicle. None shorter though. Vehicle is 1985/1986 Vehicle was bought from the Overloon museum, who got it from the collection of the Marshall Museum, owned by Jaap de Groot. He got the vehicle from the DDR apparently. Vehicle had some minor DDR modifications.
  14. Which of the many numbers dotted around the vehicle are you using as the serial number?
