  1. I guess they can put it in their Terms & Conditions to which you agree by entering the event, but it's a completely theoretical exercise as for to leave something behind you need to have actually left... unless they are going to chase you on the way home. I can't remember I have ever seen rubbish just left at pitches, other than collected piles placed next to the roadways to be collected... or is that what they mean with 'left behind'?
  2. Congratz! Next month is the War & Peace Revival Show (Beltring) at The Hop Farm near Paddock Wood, Kent. It's the biggest MV & Re-enactmentshow in the world and includes a large market where a lot of parts dealers will be present, and a large number of Dodges will attend too. If you can, I suggest you attend or at least come as a visitor. Bring camera and notebook!

  5. If you can, take a red primer as this was the originally used and it will look better in a few years down the road, when patina begins to show and some of the top layer of paint will wear through.
  6. I don't think I have ever seen this one before?
  7. 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.
  8. 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.
  9. 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.
  10. It is listed as a post-war G-13 on the Surviving Panzers website.
  11. 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.
  12. You could try electrolysis to remove rust, but it also takes off any paint.
  13. Axis Track Services just had new track links cast for the Panther they are restoring so it is possible to do?
  14. 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.
  15. Maybe this head was a spare, fitted not at the factory but sometime later?
  16. Great pics! Any with a Fordson WOT 1 (double rear axle) tanker/fuel bowser?
  17. I believe it was quietly returned to him after the over-zealous DA finally figured out he couldn't score here.
  18. What a great project! 👍
  19. That's too bad. Maybe just make a more resonable offer and wait if he comes to his senses?
  20. There is an original seat frame for one of these currently being offered for sale on Wehrmacht Awards Forum, maybe something you need: http://www.wehrmacht-awards.com/forums/showthread.php?t=979729 Not mine, just passing it on.
  21. Congratulations! Most suppliers carry parts from the same manufacturers, but prices can vary quite a lot sometimes so it might pay to shop around a bit if you need something.
