  1. Parts wanted

    As in really bad? I am curious if it was ever a military one
  2. Australian Finds

    I can see them....... another weird glitch????
  3. Parts wanted

    Interesting that these are based on the Tetrarch as when I first saw it I thought it looked more like a tank road wheel set up https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vickers_VR180_Vigor https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Light_Tank_Mk_VII_Tetrarch
  4. Parts wanted

    oddly enough i saw one for sale in Australia this week on facebook the seller want 3500 aud but might be able to haggle for parts
  5. Australian Finds

    This is from a military show in Cannington. Was nice to see the Model T that was restored in this thread on display...................... a Carrier, a rusty as hell Jeep which I really like, and a few other vehicles. The quality of restoration is impeccable and had a great chat with Bruce who owns the Carrier
  6. Australian Finds

    I thought I post different MV related stuff as I come across is around Australia during my travels. This artifact is located on a plinth by the Perth Zoo. I thought the artillery guys might like it.
  7. Interesting http://www.news.com.au/technology/innovation/radioactive-find-reveals-the-race-to-stop-hitler-developing-nuclear-weapons-may-have-been-closer-than-we-thought/news-story/75b016d006151db3eb7acfc8cc37550d I recall that huge submarine sunk off Africa was supposedly carrying nuclear material also
  8. WW1 finds and discoveries

    the shop has something else I am looking at so will see if it has any markings
  9. WW1 finds and discoveries

    Would this be a vehicle wheel or wagon https://www.gumtree.com.au/s-ad/casuarina/other-antiques-art-collectables/rustic-items-available/1158882174
  10. Adelaide airport visitor 1962

    I did some volunteer work on the one that was left in Perth. It was originally at the airport entrance then moved to the Bullcreek Aviation museum late 70's. http://www.raafawa.org.au/museum/avro-lancaster#!Lancaster_14_19 A lot of errors in the website. No mention of its French Maritime service and the black and white shot I believe is at the original location at the airport as you can just see the Mosquito on the left, which as far as I recall rotted away. edit... the original post of Lancaster WU16 is the one now in the museum over here
  11. WW1 Thornycroft restoration

    My Pinzgauer mate came back with this: "Butt Weld Panel Clamps.....get the blue ones if you can, I've found them to be the best. Strangely enought I see Hare and Forbes sell them (they usually sell the cheaper tools) http://www.machineryhouse.com.au/W113" I'd never seen them before he showed me
  12. 1940 re wdc

    "long term project", this will be something novel as your restorations are super fast..........yes I am jealous :-D
  13. WW1 Thornycroft restoration

    After the discussion on Cleco's or skin pins for holding to be riveted sections together, I thought you might be interested in these gadgets. Mate of mine uses these ones on his restoration to hold thin sheet metal together for butt welding.
  14. Useful Lug Crimping Tool

    These are very good for what they are.... Do an excellent job. I do like those hydraulic ones also as before when I first looked they were very expensive
  15. M6 High Speed Tractors Anywhere?
