    Length of FV432 with fox turret?

    As the turret was fitted over the personnel compartment, with gun front that is probably correct, but gun rear could possibly overhang. I only ever saw one or two in service, and then on a vehicle park, so this is conjecture to some extent.

    Bedford QLT restoration 82RB41

    Still cheering you on. The time it takes matters less than the end result and from what you have done so far, it will be a credit to you and another oldie saved for the future. Good luck with the rest of the restoration. Steve.

    Armour in Germany and the Law

    Surely the number of privately owned AFVs is dwarfed by those in military service, and I know they have been commandeered on at least one occasion by crewmen and driven on public roads. As this is something that can happen at any time, should all AFVs be banned altogether? Just a thought.

    Mystery Krupp ((?) vehicle

    Rereading this, I wondered whether the truck in the picture is just the sleeping van mentioned in the article, and the Krupp (together with the weapons carrier) is not actually in the picture at all! Any thoughts anyone? Steve.

    Mk1 Militant Tanker

    I second that. You are doing a great job, and I would hope your other half would appreciate that and not ask too high a price.
  6. Captain Max, you are doing a great job and I'm sure you will give a lot of people the idea that you can do whatever you set your mind to. Keep up the good work and I can hardly wait to see the finished product. Steve.
  7. I couldn't have helped you but I have to say I admire your courage! Steve.

    Mystery Object No. 203

    Having just come online and found this new question, my first impression was of some kind of lighting installation. Is that getting warm? Steve.
  9. Keep up the good work, slowly, slowly katchee monkey. Steve.

    My 2018 Season In Pictures

    Many do, but some may be a bit shy!
  11. Not exactly relevant to your inquiry, but back in the '60s when I was in training they were known as cobbly wobblies. Thought you might like to know. Steve.

    Saladin Mk.2 Armoured Car

    I'm glad you got what you wanted. My memory is usually a bit suspect (getting old), so that was a result for both of us! Steve.

    Saladin Mk.2 Armoured Car

    If you go to the Archaeology thread, two up from the model one and then go down three places to the Libya/Tripolitania chat, I'm sure there was discussion of that emblem. Strangely, started by a Canadian member. I don't have time to go through it now, but I'm sure it will be worth your while. Good luck.

    New Use for a Land Rover

    Good luck to whoever it is, if people are daft enough to pay those prices.
