    Thanks for the pointers. I will try and touch base with him. Meanwhile I made a prototype Pipe bender i used a 68 mm hole saw to copy the internal radius of the bend and scewd the blank to a piece of plywood. I used 10mm bolt for the pivot point of the handle. I got some skate board bearing races of amazon for the former. I got mixed results the test bend was perfect the full sized pipe ended up a little flat.

    So small steps to get back on the stolly Mojo road. I have to make a set of the front caliper hard brake pipes. Ive got the 5/16 pipe . I would like to replace the female cones so I can have a bit of production run. Any body know the correct ones?
  7. back in the early days of RAF Cosford aerospace museum it opened once a month and only in the summer.Look at it now.
  8. I don’t have a breakdown but am in a group that wants to move a Vc10 from bruntingthorpe to RAF Stathan. The cost is based on the previous VC10 move.
  9. Wally the actual figure for moving the Vc10 was £140000.
  10. It cost over £100000 to move the VC 10 from Bruntingthorpe to RAF Cosford. That’s dismantling move by numerous lorries and rebuilding. This Victor has been sat without any maintenance since the 1990s. Its going to go for scrap.
  11. I sugest you speak to Gary Spoars https://www.facebook.com/GJD-Services-275486342562773/ They moved the VC10 for the RAF from bruniting thorps to Cosford.
