  1. the famous bob grundy green
  2. i like everyone else has struggled with getting the correct shade, however bob grundy has found the exact colour and it can be purchased from hmg paints in manchester, infact i'm picking up a 5l tin tomorrow and will let you know the code
  3. nice find. he seemed quite pleased with it
  4. i'll dig them out and have a shufti to see what condition they are in. i've also got a load of abbott shell cases and a few other bits
  5. all wrecks belong to and are administered by the defence training estate in warminster. they seem ok wioth the idea of selling them but they have to be offered for tender through normal mod disposals. if the wrecks are on an old range the area has to be cleared by eod first
  6. i had stuck plates on my centurion and managed to free them off with a steam cleaner
  7. there are plans afoot to remove all the hulks from mod land.
  8. the mk1 is worth saving but just make sure you have a lot of spare time on your hands before you tackle it
  9. lol the ships sails tomorrow. was not the message i wanted to hear tonight
  10. you have my respect. i can stick two bits of steel together but anything electric would be unlikely to end well for me i'm glad you persevered and overcame the problems. one more step toward the big day!
  11. i think you'll be surprised how easy it is, the only requirement is shiny steel surfaces . if you get it clean it will solder
  12. have you thought of doing the repair yourself using solder. it's really easy, i did one of my cromwell tanks and didn't struggle. just make sure the area is really clean. i used normal plumbing joint solder laid on top of the hole then applied heat with a blow lamp although you might want to use a large soldering iron as sometimes the flame made the joint dirty if it take take quickly enough
  13. i'll go with richards thoughts on small tractor final drives. whatever it is i'll bet you're glad you got hold of them
