  1. Am looking for an example of the WS19 Control Box / Control Unit No12 to assist me with a restoration project. As per image below. Please let me know if you have one for sale - any condition considered. Cheers Tim
  2. Nice looking vehicle. I have mine marked to Phantom GHQ liaison Regiment... fitted with the Canadian WS9 radio Tim
  3. Pretty sure there is someone on the Maple Leaf Up forum at the moment asking for Photos of WSC in Canadian service. Not you by any chance? Tim
  4. 6pdr Portee.... nice... and different. I guess next you'll be making a 6pdr?
  5. Danny Correct there are two tours The Dutch (Keep them Rolling?) one "Stichting operation Market Garden" which is open to any vehicle and any clothing styles. The LTF one which is recreating the British 30 corps - so is only open to vehicles which would have been used by 30 corps at the time... and for which the vehicle crews have made an effort to wear authentic uniform and have authentic equipment. If you want British vehicles etc... then the LTF tour is the one to follow.,, You need to look at their facebook page to find out where they are now and where they will be over the weekend. Tim
  6. Danny Take a look at the Liberation Task Force page on Facebook. Unfortunately I am not in the Netherlands to know what their timetable is for sure. Tim
  7. You need to look on the Groesbeek DZ/LZ on the edge of Nijmegen to find all the nice British vehicles - I think they arrived last night and are there for 2 days - best check the "Liberation Task Force" Facebook page for full details. EDIT - if you wait till Sunday 22nd it will be too late and they will have gone somewhere else - now is the time to go. Tim
  8. Used to be a Bedford QLR rear body in the hedge at a scrap yard (might have been a farm) in Scamblesby, Louth, Lincolnshire - it also had loads of Austin K2 wrecks in it. I found it just after I sold my QLR... but that was a good 17 years ago - so who knows now!
  9. I will sort out some photos of the battery boxes. I do have a spare box I could sell or swap - it needs some TLC as has been "updated" by an enthusiast. Tim
  10. I didn't track down the dimensions... but I do have the batteries, and the frames seem pretty basic. I haven't removed the stowage lockers - these are original installation for my vehicle... instead I intend installing my batteries under the Canadian WS9 which sits across the rear. I don't have the dimensions for the correct mountings for the antennas either - I have some which have been made using the photos, but they need slight modification to get them to fit properly. Tim
  11. The 75mm Pack Howitzer sub-caliber is a 37mm Gun barrel mounted on top of the 75mm Pack Howitzer barrel... I will find the pics... I assumed the link I posted would be the same arrangement.
  12. You may get somewhere if you look for details on "Sub-Calibre" mounts. This is what the mechanism is called for my 75mm Pack Howitzer and it is likely it will be the same for the 6pdr. Edit, along these lines... https://www.iwm.org.uk/collections/item/object/30025431
