    The Canadianms would have used brown for most of the war.

    Daimler Armoured Car

    Thanks for the picture. Mine still had the Smoke Dischargers on when aquired by the previous owner so quite if I can identify it from this is questionable. Rex Cadman had the other one so I dont know if he is on his forum or anyone who works for him can confirm if his has the wing damage above. I also appearently have his engine covers if he wants to swapped. The vehicle numbers on stamped on them and mine do not fit 100%. I spent the day grinding the panel off the side of the turret which covers the holes from the previous war-time pattern of smoke Discharger. Interestingly on the side against the turret was the part number from the conversion kit and the date 1946. They obviously started fitting these very soon after the end of the war.

    Daimler Armoured Car

    There were I believe 2 Daimler Armoured Cars in Pounds Scrap Yard one of which I now have and the other in unknown hands. The attached picture shows one but unless mine has had the wings repaired this is not mine. I also remember seeing one parked under the motorway bridge during the 1990's. Is the other owner on here and does anyone have any other pictures? I believed the engine covered were also swapped and I have the other vehicles.
  5. The experts on the subject can be found here who can tell what factory war time production tanks were built in from small detail differences. https://www.facebook.com/groups/t34interestgroup/ These Tanks have certainly been through post-war rebuilds to get the Star Fish Wheels and the smooth casting on the Turrets is a good give away feature. Russian war-time production tends to be a lot rougher.

    Could these be one of your vehicles or a NI conversion?

    I know if we leave the UK but I was refering to staying in and the EU changing their mind. Our Goverment is very quick to enact any EU ruling into UK Law. Quite if they would reverse it so quickly is another thing.

    I have posted pictures of these vehicles in the past at Ludgershall.

    If that did happen I would assume that it would need new UK legislation to ammend that already inacted.

    NEW Track grip tyres, British WW2

    Bar Grips are still manufactured so should not be a problem aquiring.

    Trailer identification

    Without further pictures difficult to comment.

    The current wording of the relevant act states that you can sell previous spec deacts to countries out-side of the EU hence some are saying when and if we leave the EU, unless they change the law again you will be able to sell old spec deacts again but not create any new ones. I am not a legal expert so not qualified to give a legal option.

    German Navy Surrender 1918

    I went for an interview with the council which covers Dartmouth many years ago. The guy from the council told me that there used to be a costal inlet which after WW1 had a number of German Submarines tied up in. The story was where they were latter became a landfill dump and is now a rereation ground. The German Goverment had asked for permission in more recent years to carry out a exploritory dig but had been refused permission. Don't know if anyone local can confirm this.

    Engine Paint colour

    The rebuild colour changed to light blue probably in the late 50's or early 60's. In the thread I refered to a poster confirmed having a war-time rebuilt dated engine in eau-de-nil so it was in use for rebuilds before the end of the war.

    Engine Paint colour

    There is a thread some where on here dicussing war-time paint colours. It will also depend if you want a rebuild colour or as it left the factory. Even then under war-time conditions the manufacturers may not have followed pre-war practice.

    Engine Paint colour

    Presumably you mean Eau-De-Nil which predates the later light blue engine rebuild colour and probably was used before the end of the war.
  20. The first T34/85 did not enter service until 1943 so definately not 1942 as advertised. The position of the vents on the turrent roof is also meant to denote post-war manufacture.
  21. Every Russian factory seems to have had slight varions in its vehicles plus changes like Road Wheel design during post-war rebuilds. There is a T34 Facebook Page where they can name the particular factory and period of manufacture from small details in photograghs. Most survivors appear not even to be of Russian manufacture. https://www.facebook.com/groups/t34interestgroup/
  22. If he wants a Russian WW2 manufactured T34/85 even harder to find again.

    Armoured hoses ?

    I know of some old stock brake seals failing after a short period of use. Just a pity with DAC that there are two seals on the vehicle that cannot be reproduced so modification's are required,

    Armoured hoses ?

    Dingo's and probably others had armoured Brake Hoses but would you still want to use them. I had a box of Daimler Armoured Hoses dating back to when ECM were open but I have new ones made up.
  25. Found this by just searching on T34/85 for sale. http://www.mortarinvestments.eu/products/tanks-2/t-34-35
