  4. Here is one for the small engine enthusiast(s) on the site. I've been sent two pictures of what once was an engine manufactured for military use. However, there are not data plates or anything so what is it? More pictures may follow As Toyah might have said "It's Mystery!"
  5. A mausoleum? No, seriously it is certainly is a big job
  6. I would have thought the vehicles assuming they exist, it will be FT17, Char Bis and those modified R-35 fitted with a Czech anti-tank gun. The Channels Islands were only equipped with captured tanks, though still well worth recovering
  7. I recall of hearing about an elderly gentleman taking his Abbot out to raise money one Remembrance Saturday in his local town. Whilst traversing the pavement the Abbot ripped out a number of kerb stones. Not wishing to encumber the local council into sending him a large bill for the rectification of pavement, he went the following day to relay the kerbstones. The following week the council pulled it all up as part of a redevelopment.
  8. Milweb is a bit like the Magic Roundabout, things just go round and round. For example the tracked vehicles that are on from France have had more returns than Tommy Docherty.

  12. Perhaps there should be another post on useful terms heard when buying a vehicle; 1} They all make that noise. 2} They make them like that. 3} This should be in a museum it is so rare. 4} Vickers didn't make their machine gun mountings the same, they all differ....

  18. Was there not something similar in Classic Military Vehicles a year or so ago? If I recall correctly it was built on an original chassis.
  19. The best way to solve the problem is visit a foundry and ask the experts. Modern SG cast irons are much better than the early CI. the can bend and twist whilst not snapping. The same goes for the casting design ask at the foundry, they will also put you in touch with pattern makers. Be prepared to drill out the castings for the track pins, it can be done, I've done it.
  20. You need to be a contortionist of small stature to fit in the thing let alone move about in it.
