  1. Looks like one may exist still:
  2. Scammell Crusader and another Scammell on a low loader going clockwise on the M25 at Junction 17 on Saturday 17 January.
  3. I'm sure in the early years they were included in certain editions. May be worth dropping the Editor a line in case there is anyone in house who can help with your request.
  4. Just logged onto the iPlayer to have another look and got the attached screengrab. Think we can say that it is indeed an AEC Militant. Well worth a look at the beach scene on episode 5 about 39 minutes in for anyone interested.
  5. Anyone spot the AEC Militant cab which was near to an explosion on the beach scene from two episodes ago? A shame as they did manage to get some of the period vehicles correct.
  6. Great to see and hear that the Militant has had a good first road-run. Really interesting to see this project continuing to come together.
  7. Really good to see progression on this interesting vehicle. I continue to follow it with admiration and look forward to seeing the finished product. Thanks for providing the updates and pictures.
  8. Spotted the Dodge Command Car heading back up the M40 on a trailer on Sunday afternoon. It has already been listed on Milweb!
  9. Yep that's Nikki, along with his newly finished living van with patio, and as has been pointed out he is on his way to Llandudno.
  10. What looked like a German WW2 lorry being transported up the M40 last Sunday morning. Looked to be authentic but was wondering if may have been made up for a movie.
  11. Welcome to the club! There is a good Facebook group with a lot of knowledgeable people on it here: https://www.facebook.com/groups/gipsy.club/ Scott
  12. Interestingly, well it was to me, two of the museum exhibits appeared on Mega Shippers - Million Pound Movers last week with the moving of the Churchill and Sherman from outside ready for restoration.
  13. While in attendance at Rempstone Steam Rally the weekend before last I came across this interesting 1913 Chataignier & Croad roller, which is of French construction but using British parts, and worked in St Etienne. Now the owner had a story that it was used during the First World War before being put back into public use in the inter war years. When France was overrun at the start of the Second World War it was captured and used by the Germans with insignia being found on the coal tender to suggest this. Finally it fell into American hands and was eventually left behind in Holland from where it was purchased. Thought it may be of interest to those on here.
  14. Had four days on site this year, thought that vehicle numbers had increased from last year ( look how many were in Medway) and stall numbers were around the same as 2017 - if you remember there was a large gap at the end far end then as well. For me Thursday and Friday felt a bit like the old W&P with good turnouts in the arena, a large number of people watching from the bank, and general good fun with friends both during the day and night. Everyone will have a different opinion, and yes it will probably never be quite like the old show, but the move back to the Hop Farm has certainly saved the show IMO. No matter what gripes people have come the start of July next year we shall all be looking forward to it once again.
  15. Spotted a CMP, which looked like it was part the way through a restoration, on the back of a lorry near Junction 18 of the M25 last Monday - 25 June.
