  1. Although the radio body is nice, I want to look at GS types first. I would also like to get one that is as complete as possible....doors etc.
  2. Are the export rules mostly the same for Belgium also?
  3. I have a ferret, fuel consumption does not scare me 😁 I am hopefully viewing one at tanks and trucks, so may have a better idea of what I am looking for after that, thanks for the offer, may take you up on it. mick
  4. Thanks for that, I was hoping it would have been easier maybe I could get seller to delver this side and the sort out transport at this end....again, need a VERY friendly seller
  5. Next question. has anyone here imported one from Holland to uk? How easy and ballpark how much cost is involved. Can I just drive one back and then register it once in uk? What would I need to set in place to get it across the channel? Any advice on getting it registered? cheers mick
  6. Hi Simon, unfortunately will not be at W&P, we are away. Will be at tanks and trucks though.
  7. Thanks Daniel, that UN one looks very complete, doors etc
  8. Thanks daniel sounds perfect! Will be looking at one at tanks trucks and firepower hopefully, need to convince someone I have to also keep the ferret for investment purposes mick
  9. Thanks robin, it will be a little while yet, and I think from your area code you are in Galway? That may be a little too far for me. i think I may have already spoke with those Dutch guys, and it was them that got me interested....they were total nutters, in the best possible way
  10. Thanks guys. Yes the transmission is interesting, but no more odd than a ferret I guess. The fact that no-one seems to have anything bad to say about them is good!!!!
  11. I am thinking of a new MV, and very much like the look of a DAF YA126. Saw one in action at W&P the other year (with some crazy Dutch guys) and was very impressed. What are people's opinions on these trucks? Are the practical (very subjective...relatively practical is probably a better phrase). Good and bad points. Spares availability? Better to get one from Netherlands and import? Many Thanks Mick
  12. Andy Looking at your photos...wouldn't stand a chance of mounting in an uparmoured one (with the extra protection over the bevel boxes)!!! Mick
  13. Hi robin, yes Beirut, Lebanon in 1984 with 16/5 QRL. My particular ferret was handed over from QDG to QRL late 83 (I have been told) and change from green to light stone at that time. i purchased it from an ex-member here who served in it, at that time. He has since, sadly passed away and would like to take it back to when he served as I had promised.
  14. sorry....cancel that, should have just gone straight to Clive's corner.....sorted Had a look at post war paint documents!
  15. I have searched but cannot find on here....does anyone know the correct BS/RAL number for sand or stone colour for armoured vehicles in early 80's? I think its light stone, BS381c 361? Many Thanks Mick
  16. Hi wayne, welcome aboard, where abouts are you? Any pics of your ferret? mick
  17. Dont send it by Hermes! They lost one already!
  18. Clive, you implied some very very fast. radio or some sort of measurement or detection of radiation waves?
  19. Guessing its not the same as a Ferret one? i have one of those spare Mick
  20. Hi have you exposed all the gear change linkage? The linkage moves over when in higher gears maybe it's vibrating on some tin work? mick
  21. When I saw the title I thought it was taking this whole MV thing a bit too far! if I were dating a QL chassis my wife would definitely leave me!
