    Blinged Ferret Again

    Owner found he couldn't make money out of it? Looks a bit pricey, as Tanks-A lot have 4 for sale, £6-9K for the Mk1/2 & £15K for a MkIV?
  4. Ooooops! Looks like some silly bugger thought Norway's in the tropics, or climate change has warmed it up!

    Combat dealers is back :(

    Like all these programs, made for the general public, not the knowledgeable enthusiast. I saw one a few days back, they were searching for a Schwimwagen in Normandy. Found it "eventually", in a farmer's barn. A bit of a rusty bodyshell, with what appears to be shrapnel damage. Still got its SS registration plate visible. Old French farmer wouldn't part with it, even at Euros 60K! Interesting to see what's still out there. Treat it as a bit of entertainment, same as the other stuff on the History Channel, where clips of Spitfire MkXIVs are seen, when the Battle of Britain is discussed!
  6. I believe one of them has donated a propeller to the one restored by the Pearsons.

    Royal Naval Divison. 1914

    Many of the early armoured cars were simply armour plates attached to the chassisof a touring car. The Belgian Minerva, for example. A little more advanced, in that it had an armoured door to close the radiator off & a small shield for the gunner. http://www.landships.info/landships/car_articles.html?load=car_articles/Minerva.html

    Hurricane, movie

    The clip posted by TonyB shows it. First 3 aircraft are the real Hurricanes, the three in the background are Buchons. Here's one of them. http://warbirds.wikia.com/wiki/File:Hurrischmitt6.jpg

    Caunter-camouflaged gem at the YWE

    Since there are Willy's Jeeps on there, for up to £25k, then I suppose it's not that much.

    Another DUKW accident

    40 deaths in 20 years in these things. Problem appears to be the canopy, when they sink, the passengers get caught up, lifejackets or not.

    Any ideas about this halftrack?

    Well spotted, a quick "Google" throws up the FWD-Roadless, 3-ton, Half-Track. Two models, one for the Danish army, the other for the Sudanese. http://archive.commercialmotor.com/article/29th-december-1925/27/new-fwd-roadless-traction-vehicles
