  1. I was told they were Trowbrigde by the owner and I suggestedthe locations on the original post and the buildings match but not the back grounds. In one there is a different building and on the gate house main picture you cannot get the orientation correct for the location so I am still to be 100% convinced. Neil
  2. These are a friends pictures that I posted on local site so it shows how quickly they get round the web. Interesting how the person posting them has put his deatails on them to presumably claim ownership. The exact identification on location is yet to be confirmed. I dont have Barts earlier book.
  3. Looking again neither are Guys. The two outer ones are Commer Beetles.
  4. What make is the vehicle between the two Guys in this picture. Almost looks like one of the Canadian CMP prototypes.
  5. No serious re-enactor would be seen dead in one but SOF BD's are relatively cheap. https://www.sofmilitary.co.uk/1940-bd-battle-dress-wool-jacket.html
  6. Dont know if Panther are back in production yet after the death of the owner. They did say originally that no more British stuff would be produced but I believe that has changed. There are better UK suppliers but one is out of material and you will have a very long wait for the other. Stating your size and advertising on one of the FB Groups may help. Lots of originals as well if your head is not too big.
  7. Any recomendations please on the best replica SA80 on the market with Iron Sights whether Air Soft or otherwise? I have the legal requirement to aquire one.
  8. Is this one? https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/VINTAGE-BRITISH-ARMY-OLIVE-GREEN-WASH-KIT-UTILITY-TOOL-ROLL-POUCH-DATED-1971/193026332169?hash=item2cf1441609:g:q~0AAOSwxTpdQ5K5
  9. If you want a complete functioning one rather than just the bottom part for an Airborne Jeep or similar you are probably looking at 4 figures to get one made. There are gears and rack to get made up as well as all the castings and other fabrication.
  10. There are probably no more than 1 or 2 in private hands in the UK so good luck. I used to own one of the more complete examples.
  11. All their batteries look the same and are correct for the period. You need to look at your required Amp Hour requirement and size to fit the holder on the vehicle.
  12. Yes but not in a sensible bar-grip or track grip tread pattern you would want if you had the choice on a WW2 British or Canadian Vehicle. The lack of even a picture of the ones a member of this forum has been promoting presumably also casts doubts on this potential source. Just a great pity the Dunlop Track Grip Moulds exist but the company refuses to make any.
  13. You presumably want trackgrips for a British / Canadian war-time vehicle unless you are trying to match whatever is currently fitted. Titan 11:20X20 Bar Grips seems to appear on ebay from time to time. There were some on within the last month. 10:50X20 have not been manufactured for over 50 years so unlikely to see any useable examples..
  14. I assume you are trying to portray aparticular period when they were first introduced as they were obviously in service way past the period of 68 pattern combats.
  15. Were Firestone Tires available in 10.50 X 20 during the war for British Vehicles or were they fitting 11.00 X 20 which replaced the smaller size post-war. The Firestones are shown on Daimler and Humber Armoured Cars during WW2.
