  1. Did you just write what you wanted to write about or ask what they would like articles on? I just said is there anything you would like an article on, and they have all been published so far. I guess you will never please everyone, I have not had Windscreen in a while because I dropped out of the MVT and did not miss it,, I found the endless articles about the wiring on some rare radio based lightweight Land Rover rather dull. In my view a magazine like this should now be mainly filled with peoples experiences, photos of a trip they went on, show reports etc. The details of the vehicle's themselves have been done to death!! Unless it is a one off or something very unusual. You can do articles on individuals and their collections or vehicle, but people are always reserved about doing this, as not wanting to appear to show off!! KR J
  2. For a magazine like this to survive in what is a relatively niche hobby, it needs the people who are in it to contribute a bit. I bought the first issue of both CMV and Military Machines and most issues after that, but at the end of the day there are only so many subjects that can be written about. I have often thought that they could reprint an article from the early 2000's and would I remember reading it the first time round? The task of filling a monthly magazine like this and keeping it interesting is enormous!! I have personally written a few articles recently - you may have thought they were complete rubbish, but most of them took no more than a couple of evenings to write, I am too busy really but I just thought if no one bothers then there will never be any content. Some 'Characters' have been in the hobby a long time, some make their living from it, give a bit back and spend some time to write something......... KR Jon
  3. I have 2 no. 8.25x20 chevron pattern, used but they have quite a lot of tread left and are run flats. I have only changed them myself as I should have been using 900x20. £100 each plus P&P or collection from WV15 5HP Jon Hickman jonhickman@hotmail.co.uk 07818420678
  4. I have 4 900x20 bar grips, they have quite a lot of tread but do have some cracks in the side walls. They are Bridgstones and come without wheels. I have only changed them myself as I want a square edged tyre. £80 plus P&P or collection from WV15 5HP Jon Hickman jonhickman@hotmail.co.uk 07818420678
  5. I think there is only one in the UK, you will need to look to Europe or the US. They come up in the US fairly regularly, don't get put off by the shipping it's all fairly simple. Jon
  6. 8 pr, originated on a Rio I would think. regards Jon
  7. I have 4 900x20 bar grips, they have quite a lot of tread but do have some cracks in the side walls. The are Bridgstones and come without wheels. Ideal for a vehicle that you don't use all that often or just want to get rolling or a trailer or something. I have only changed them myself as I want a square edged tyre. £80 plus P&P or collection from WV15 5HP Jon Hickman jonhickman@hotmail.co.uk 07818420678
  8. If you have one of these please PM me!! Thanks Jon Hickman

  10. £114 k for the half track seems very high, but it was a very nice example and now tracks are available they are much more attractive. The half track is also one of the most iconic Allied vehicles of WW2.
  11. If the price is way off, then the auction house will always approach the higest bidder to see if they would be willing to pay the reserve and therefore a deal can be done. The seller may of course also lower the reserve. Sometimes if it is just under, let's say it had been 147k, then the auctioneer can use his discretion to sell it anyway, below the reserve. Quite often they will then lower their fee to ensure the seller gets the same amount as they would have done had it reached the reserve.
  12. I was going to go but things got busy in the office and as a result I did not make it. Watched it live online instead.
  13. It was £100k plus commission, so £112k total price. Reserve I presume was bottom estimate which was 150k.
  14. For those who are interested it made 100k and was provisionally sold. And by comparison, a professionally restored 86 Inch Series 1 made £35,500 plus 12% commission, £39,750!!!
