  1. Thank you Tim for this addition! Unfortunately I 'm not on facebook and the LTF website does not show a detailed program. Is there a chance for me to find out if and where I can watch the XXX corps tommorrow September 22nd as this is my last chance. I would also like to show this to my son who is 18 years old and has never seen this. I would be greatful if anybody can tell me where to be tomorrow for the XXX corps!!! Many thanks, Danny
  2. Yesterday I read a Dutch newspaper article about the event with which everything became clear to me. There appear to be two organization groups i.e. "Liberation task force" and "Stichting operation Market Garden". The southern and northern convoy routes are organized by the "Stichting operation Market Garden" in which in particular US vehicles participate. In the "Liberation task force" in particular British vehicles participate. I didn't know that. The reason of two organization groups is a difference in insight about what the event should look like. Let's not discuss about that topic. So, to me, as a British vehicle enthousiast it doesn't make much sense to drive all the way to Nijmegen or area to see the so called "northern route" on Sunday 22nd of September. Cheers, Danny
  3. Thank you Pete and Tim! Awesome video …! Maybe I am late with my questions and had to ask them before all started! I hope all these vehicles shown in the video Pete added to this post will participate in the northern convoy route this comming Sunday? If I'm right this route will travel from base camp in Schijndel to the other camp in Grave, then to Groesbeek and ending in Nijmegen. Does anybody perhaps know? I only have the oppertunity to go on Sunday and I would like to see all the British very much. Thanks, Danny
  4. Last Saturday I 've watched the 75th anniversary Hells Highway southern route vehicles convoy about 10 km from the starting point in Leopoldsburg Belgium. To me as a British vehicles enthousiast the convoy was very disappointing. Hardly any British WWII vehicles. I remember only one Bedford MW, one Fordson WOT2, one C15 CMP, a few utility cars and that's about it. Maybe I have forgotten one but at least no British armoured vehicles, no bren carriers and no tanks at all. If I have looked closely I have hardly seen British license plates on the vehicles. The passing of the convoy took only half an hour. I hope it will be worth it to drive all the way up to Nijmegen next Sunday September 22nd in the hope to see an awesome convoy. WHERE WILL THE BRITISH BE WITH THEIR BRITISH VEHICLES?????????WHERE DO I HAVE TO BE????????? Cheers, Danny
  5. Looking at the so called "Dapple"/"Foliage" or “Mickey Mouse” camouflage pattern on the Bedford MWD as shown in the pictures below I was wondering how the camouflage pattern on the GS-body may look like with the tarpaulin taken off the vehicle. I have indicated this in red implying that some “ears” will not be there on the GS-body. Is this correct, or could there be any “ears” under the tarpaulin which means that there are actually two patterns, with and without tarpaulin? The above pattern is similar to the pattern below. Is the above pattern typical for the MWD and will it be different on a MWR and MW compressor truck as shown below or is it just a variety of choice by the painter? The camouflage pattern in the following pictures (MWR and compressor truck) is different to some extent. Here the pattern is "lowered" and may be the same on as well the tarpaulin as on the body. All above patterns have a similar structure but I would like to know if the varieties are typical for each type of vehicle (MWD versus MWR or MW compressor truck) or was it a painter's choice or maybe period dependent? Furthermore, I would like to know how the side steps, petrol tanks, mud flaps, tow rop box and petrol can bracket on a bedford MWD are blackened? Will they be completely black or just what can be viewed from the side, top and/or back? But how then for, for instance, the petrol tank which is half hidden in the tub and half hidden under the vehicle? Summarized, I would like to know how to black painting a MWD with the above as a guide! Thanks, Danny
  6. Thanks MatchFuzee, but these are slightly different. I'm actually looking for original ones! Who can help? Cheers, Danny
  7. Looking for two rear bumper stops for my bedford MW as presented in the pictures below. Thanks, Danny 2.75 x 2 inch
  8. I'm looking for at least three, preferably five, footman loops as presented in the attached picture. The dimension between the two holes (center to center) is typical 6.2 cm to fit the holes in the cab (red arrows) of my bedford mw. Thanks, Danny
  9. Richard, You keep up the courage with such a big project. It looks really good! 👍 Danny
  10. Battery cable protection under cab. Restoration of both doors
  11. OD paint is porous at the surface to give it a matt look. This property is because of the addition of a matting agent such as precipitated silica but only at a dosage of a few percent. Water will certainly not penetrate through the paint layer such that the metal underneath will rust because of the presence of the silica or matting agent. On the contrary, the presence of silica will have a positive effect on corrosion because of its anti corrosion property. Weathering of coating films causes, in particular, a change of the film surface as function of time. Depending on weather conditions and on the resistance of the binders, pigments and fillers used and on the pigment volume concentration, there will be more or less degradation of the coating film surface. In the case of matted exterior coatings, the choice of binders is quite important. Cheers, Danny
  12. Hi Dave, I've got these for sale which may be of interest? Regards, Danny
  13. Location Maastricht, The Netherlands! Cheers, Danny
  14. Thank you guys, much appreciated! Bas & Danny
  15. My son who is 16 years old has started to collect some British WWII webbing. Now he likes to know the difference between the ammo boots with and without the hobnailed soles. And how about the horseshoe toe and heel? Which type of shoes will he need for an infantry display? Are there perhaps some good sites or forums on the internet? Many thanks, on behalf of my son Bas
