  1. Wheatcroft Collection

    Totally agree - it gets lost in the all the white noise of Facebook. We have already started the back end work of the site. His collection is massive. Will also bring news of the S-130 and......Tigers
  2. Wheatcroft Collection

    It does and it will soon have a new one - we are building it for them :-)
  3. Take a look at the site we’re developing at www.warbitz.com You’ll find Auctions, listings and storefront functionality. Please don’t judge the site just yet as we’re still working on it. It totally free to use and we will be running features on cool stuff on War History Online which has around 10 million views a month. When we launch we will be launching by listing some pretty impressive stuff - including vehicles - from a very impressive collector that we all know the name of. If you have something listed on the forum classifieds then I would really appreciate your help - if you had time - on the Warbitz site and let me have your feedback and of course leave it there for when we go live. It will get in the front of millions - we expect to give live in around 2-3 weeks, once we have the full inventory from the aforementioned collector. If you have something for sale then please feel free to upload it to the site and let me know your feedback. You can add video, stacks of images and fully manage your own listing/s. Check out the features of the your listing/of the site below - really is pretty slick :-) Features https://www.warbitz.com/index.php?a=28&b=135 Thanks everyone, your help is much appreciated! Jack.
  4. Wheatcroft Collection

    Not sure if this has been shared here before but last week I was in a meeting with Kevin Wheatcroft and by the sounds of it - some pretty cool news coming out of the collection soon, a new website and a load of other stuff coming from them. In the meantime so updates below https://www.warhistoryonline.com/instant-articles/wheatcroft-collection-update.html
  5. MK3 Covenanter restoration

    Absolutely insane Rick! Love it!
  6. WW1 Thornycroft restoration

    Steady please - that isn't the sort of tone we have on HMVF. That sounds like a threat to me, I hope I am wrong.
  7. New Format

    Thanks guys but to all those who are sadly complaining - you should have been here when we went through the first upgrade in 2006 (ish) the words were a lot harsher than this. The when we went through the big one - the same complaints as above but then the forum went from strength to strength. Those of us who are used to the other 'easier' forums - if they do not go through this change at some point then they will cease to exist - so their days are sadly numbered :-( I am sad when we lose friends but HMVF has always had to evolve to allow it to survive. I can remember when we used to have B&W television and no remote control....times change. Keep with it guys otherwise will miss you at the bar in the HMVF Clubhouse :-)
  8. Any ideas...Panzer towing cable

    That's great thank you very much!
  9. Guys would anyone know the diameter of the towing cable for a Panther / Tiger I / Tiger II? Thanks!
  10. New Format

    Really sorry to hear that guys and understand that change is sometimes a pain in the backside. HMVF has been here since 2005 and throughout those years we have naturally have made many changes. This is because the software/tech becomes outdated - so if we don't make the changes then the forum no longer works. Evolution of the forum has always happened and will always happen and sadly there is nothing we can do about that if we want to keep the forum open, alive and up to date. I know it can be very frustrating at the beginning but please hang in there as you will be missed!! My kind regards, Jack.

  12. Welcome back!

    The whip round wasn't so good
  13. Welcome back!

  14. Welcome back!

    Great work Joris - I know it has been a lot of work so there is a pint in the HMVF Clubhouse from me :-)
  15. Dunkirk,movie

    After all it is subjective - not matter what 'war' film we see on the big screen is never going to communicate war unless you were there. Sadly, even oral history can no longer be relied upon. This film has had a major impact - I have been around the world recently and every time I have gone to book tickets it has been a sell out. What is has done and will do, is to get those who care to pick up books and do the research. It's interesting to note that everyone (Brits) b*tch and moan about that Hollywood thinks only the US won the war - when a UK film is made the Brits b*tch and moan about the stitching wasn't correct on that BD or the characters weren't allowed to develop (whatever that means) it sure as hell wasn't about the characters it was about a crucial part of our survival that 'no one' has ever heard of as Hollywood dominates the film industry as it has the $$$.
