  1. So after much anquish, frustration and thinking to give up I was offered another one. So I did what any sane person would do and bought it......
  2. '93 model, last of the 'real' Pinzgauers, well from Austria Steyr Puch
  3. Unfortunately due to paperwork and bureaucracy I was banging my head against the wall regarding this vehicle as the plods in suits kept insisting it did not exist :mad:.
  4. After doing some searches I found very little on Pinz's in here so I thought you would enjoy my rebuild to date (with the usual trials and tribulations:cry:). I bought this in January '09
  5. 2 x Pinzgauer 716 1 x Pinzgauer 718
  6. I got heaps of those :-D
  7. I guess this Landy should be in here. I need to get back and get some closer shots of these
  8. Quatam physics :coffee: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Self-powered_lighting I had to think about it for a bit, Trilux is created by Tritium. Has a halflife of 12.36 years Regards Mike
  9. With radiation there is 2 aspects.. - radiation exposure (off the top of my head you are allowed as civis 2.5 microSV/hour) if the dials emit more than that you have a problem. Thats at where you would be sitting not the dial as the closer you get the higher the reading even low strength looks high if you put the meter on it as inverse square law rule. This is further why the girls licking the brushes had issues as contact with skin is obviously the highest dose level. Exposure biggest concern is gamma output in Sv - radiactive contamination, is the more serious concern as we are talking about particulate matter which can lodge in your body and emit. Gamma is a problem but Alpha is much more problematic internally. A lot of military alloys such as Thorium magnesium are also radioactive..... seeing UH-1 helecopter engines sectioned in museums make me wonder... so the advice dont open them or sniff the dust is good advice main problem is most 'safety' or 'inspectors' dont know anything about radiation and possibly a small issue becomes a big issue, for nothing. If you have even been injected with radiactive dye for xrays... you will emit over the legal limit for about 8 hours
  10. yep pigs, most likely on Lightweight forum. Still haven't seen one in a yard only the museum. I tracked down the story on the SIMBAS armoured vehicle but the trail went cold 2 years ago. The Pinz is in final stages of repaint....... finally, have rego, tax, insurance etc
  11. and this one was in a Landrover breakers yard in the UK
  12. i forgot about the fire trucks
  13. G'Day, I'm an Aussie in Malaysia. I rebuilt a Lightweight in the UK last year and shipped it to Aus and did a crosscountry trip. Being based in Malaysia I have been scrumaging around junk yards here to find a project. As a result I find the odd bit of interesting stuff which I post on different forums, in case someone wants something. Not a dealer, just someone with crazy urges when seeing a nice bit of camo. I am currently rebuilding a Pinz Regards Mike
  14. yep the only military contract and last was to Malaysia. Diesel ones... We threw some diffs in a sea container a few months ago. Apologies I was bleary eyed last night. The jeeps are KM410 derivitives, the white polis wagon is an Iveco and some Volvo C303's. The Roman Brasov's are around 96 era. regards Mike
  15. most likely best buy at the moment are these Roman Brasov 4x4 trucks [/url]
  16. I thought I would post some finds here in Malaysia as we helped send some gear back recently to UK.
