  1. If the local yabbo's are to be believed this can be fixed by lowering the suspension, adding a chrome endpiece to the exhaust and fitting a useless spoiler. A new soundsystem and metallic paintjob are optional but can't hurt either.
  2. There are several models Solex carbs that will work on a jeep but were used on various other cars, if you look around you may find a good original one for pennies! I'm currently using a Solex that was originally for a 1970's Opel Kadett whilst the original Carter is in pieces on the workbench and the jeep runs just fine on it, and even a bit more economical. It cost me less than €20 but because the choke linkage faces the other was I had to make a small bracket so the cable makes a U-turn. I don't have a list of suitable model numbers but with some research you should find some.
  3. The first Swiss Hetzers were indeed WW2-produced vehicles that were upgraded to G13 spec post-war, but I have no idea if that's the case here. If the hull is WW2-made restoring back is possible but will require an original engine and gun, and probably internal fittings such as radio's, ammo racks etc.
  4. It is listed as a post-war G-13 on the Surviving Panzers website.
  5. British contract jeeps were delivered by the factory in standard US OD, so if you want to represent a WW2 British jeep just go with 'MAT 1' (available from many parts suppliers) and British markings.
  6. You could try electrolysis to remove rust, but it also takes off any paint.
  7. Axis Track Services just had new track links cast for the Panther they are restoring so it is possible to do?
  8. I guess you can just book A vehicle before that date if you already know you're going anyway, and just change the booking later if needed.
  9. Maybe this head was a spare, fitted not at the factory but sometime later?
  10. Great pics! Any with a Fordson WOT 1 (double rear axle) tanker/fuel bowser?
  11. I believe it was quietly returned to him after the over-zealous DA finally figured out he couldn't score here.
  12. What a great project! 👍
