  1. Sorry that you may have lost out Gez. I don't know new owners name yet. It hadn't been advertised anywhere else but a couple of others that knew may have spread the news. The early RL, the series 2 radio LR and even the Russian missile truck are still there but I don't know if they are for sale. The Routemaster has gone some time ago. Hey, shy boys get nowt but you could try! George
  2. I've just heRd a rumour that the Ferret has a new owner. Anyone want to own up?
  3. I remember someone replying to the first time I reported this Ferret that it had been totally restored in GREEN before being sold to the present owner
  4. I don't know if this link will work but this Ferret needs a new home. A few years ago I reported a yellow Ferret in Gateshead owned by Lings Cars in Gateshead. I've been informed that it is now for sale as a non runner with accessories missing. Original photos on the forum somewhere? As far as I know it has been stored in a barn since it was bought. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o3dsIPXD_6w
  5. Hi. I aquired this a few years ago and I was told it was for a jeep. Any ideas what these were made for? Boxed, brand new, needs a new home Photos attached
  6. Just want to say I'm full of respect for you lads that take on these massive jobs and can only imagine the pride you feel on completion. Keep it up as it gives us mere mortals so much pleasure and jealousy 👍🏻
  7. I am selling my SLR bayonet. When bought it was in unused condition and that hasn't changed. The handle and Scabbard had some minor scratches and chips on them so Steve Carr kindly sandblasted them for me. I then had them professionally powder coated. My intention was to collect all marks of SLR bayonets but I never got around to it. This is good enough for display or for use. It has been fairly valued it at £100 plus postage that I think is a fair price. I also have a KM speedo for a jeep, two British army ferret extinguishers and M201 electric wipers and motor.
  8. Anyone here own this Lightweight? Spotted in a field near Washington, Tyne &Wear. I won't say where for respect for the owner if it has one but someone has put a cover over it suggesting ownership. Nice project !
  9. SOLD. The full title is Rolls Royce Operators hand book and covers Merlin engines &power plants MK. Nos. 22, 24 and T24 . The hand book was first published in 1944 as some pages show but this actual copy was printed in 1945 with additional amendments for the British Overseas Aircraft Corporation. The stamps in the hand book show that it was part of the BOAC technical library before being discarded. The book is complete with colour and black & white photos and diagrams No loose pages but a few pages have tatty edges, but only on the edges. I know of six other copies of this 1945 edition and three are in museums, one supposed to be with the BBMF, one with IWM and another with a private collector in Canada. There may be more but my internet searches haven't found them yet. The Canadian collector told me the book was worth about £500. When I took it to the Antiques Roadshow, three 'experts' confirmed the valuation. Incase you're wondering, the book or me or both wasn't interesting enough to be on show. This book sat in a cupboard for god knows how many years before I saved it from the father in laws skip. I will upload some photos tomorrow. Yes I know you can get later copies of the book or even download a version but you can't beat the real thing ! i will advertise this elsewhere but I would prefer it went to an enthusiast and not just a rare book collector. Value? Ive since been told that the book is realistically worth £200-£250 Make me an offer I can't refuse. Thanks for reading. George
  10. Hi. Just to give you Aviators a heads up. I am just about to advertise my original copy of the Operators handbook for Rolls Royce Merlin engines & power plants, Mark numbers 22,24,T24 for transport aircraft. This is the 1944 edition, revised in 1945 for BOAC civilian aircraft using Merlin engines. The book is stamped British Overseas Airways, Technical department. Very few of this rare 1945 edition left. I took this book to the Antiques Roadshow last year and three 'experts' valued it at around £500. Now in the classifieds section Open to offers George
