    Many thanks Bryan I may take you up on that offer as I was in the army and not the Raf. I will probably mark it up for one of the local Sqns that served in my village.....Which RAF vehicles had yellow roofs ? Stu

    I totally agree leg room is great as i'm 6ft plus, but I have to look down to see out of the windscreen. I was going to paint it green but have decided to go with the RAF look as both the vehicles location and its reworking(bomb platform) lend itself to it. I have a friend who used to spray aircraft who will re-spray it for me hopefully at the local raf camp.this is it just before I bought it. There is a picture on here of it during restoration several years ago and there are purists out there that wont like the body on the back. I have plans to sort out the back but iam not a rich man so I will concentrate on keeping it running. I love it ......it makes me smile when iam driving it and there are not many vehicles that do that and it looks good. Hopefully it will look even better in RAF colours :-D

    woodhall spa40's festival 2013

    we have had a good response from vehicle owners this year and can confirm the arrival of two halftracks more gmc's and an Austin k6 as well as Winston Churchill in a bomber command staff car and four motorcycle outriders. plus 37 trade stalls space is running out fast.
  12. I have just bought a K6 and was wondering if anyone else had one. mine is a bit of a mongrel sadly but has potential. I think its one of the most attractive british ww2 trucks, but there is not a lot of info around about them.How many are left ?

    woodhall spa40's festival 2013

    just had a great meeting with the NFS/AFS who are bringing 3 wartime fire engines to the show and we are going to be carrying out a large air raid scenario at the Golf hotel in the village, with lots of pyros and smoke. If you want to take part let us know especially if you own a K2 ambulance or anything ww2 and you don't mind mucking in.
