  1. Interesting http://www.news.com.au/technology/innovation/radioactive-find-reveals-the-race-to-stop-hitler-developing-nuclear-weapons-may-have-been-closer-than-we-thought/news-story/75b016d006151db3eb7acfc8cc37550d I recall that huge submarine sunk off Africa was supposedly carrying nuclear material also
  2. In the news today is an item concerning the memorial to the late inventor of the AK-47. Apparently a monumental blunder (pardon the pun) has been carried out by the sculptor as a Nazi StG44 Sturmgewehr was included in memorial. However IMHO the AK-47 was a rip off of the StG44 so that weapon had every right to be on the memorial and should not have been removed! http://www.msn.com/en-gb/news/world/nazi-gun-removed-from-statue-of-ak-47-founder-mikhail-kalashnikov-in-moscow/ar-AAsmMmb StG44 & AK-47 compared; http://i54.tinypic.com/30xabe1.jpg
  3. not clear if this will affect historic artifacts like helmets, swords, daggers, flags etc. but if it does then we could be seeing a surge of that stuff on the market coming from Itlay as collectors are forced to get rid of their items https://www.rt.com/news/403233-italy-law-fascism-souvenirs/

  8. Hi Don't know what the problem was with the other thread , but somebody "spat the dummy" for whatever reason. I have a lathe with a interesting history . Built mid 1940 it was ordered by a machinery dealer in Paris France . The lathe was ready to ship but the Germans would have grabbed it , it was diverted to Australia where it was used by GMH the Aust. arm of GM USA The lathe is metric which is rare as it's a US built Hendey. It is in good shape .
  9. Alert to importers of vehicles into Australia...https://www.hemmings.com/blog/2017/0...ia/?refer=news Is an article about vehicles being impounded, sent to a lab, and disassembled in an Asbestos search. Clutches, brake shoes and even Gaskets are suspect. Newc in Oregon

  18. DELETED ! ..through lack of interest and my post ridiculed by very childish, irellevant replies!!!!!!!!
  19. Hello all, I recently aquired an M5 HT and am looking for a various amount of parts and diagrams etc to restore it. All the rear armour was removed and a flat back installed, thats now all been removed back to the bare chassis :-D Most of the instruments are missing although I've sourced a couple. It has a Ford diesel engine installed which will have to remain until an original IHC can be found (yes I know not an easy task!). I'd be grateful of any contacts, leads etc to parts. This is a long term project but I'm loving every minute working on the old beast! :cool2:
  20. Hi Gents, Just an up date on the Mighty Militant MKI (38EP19), after a great three weeks at home on leave and almost as much time spent on Milly I managed to pass the MOT for the 2nd time. Happy days, prior to the MOT I got time to check all brake shoes and re-welded the "Anti Screech" rings back on to the rear four drums. I also secured a good deal on 6 part worn tyres with in an hour or so from home. I did managed to change one tyre which was pointed out to me last year on MOT, so I was chuffed to bits having replaced it. The two seats which I was having refurbished arrived the day before MOT, Phew! great job. I will need to adjust the passengers seat as the engine cover is rubbing against the seat which had caused most of the unnecessary damage to the old seat covering. Looking forward to removing all wheels and brake drums next leave and replacing the odd tyre or two. I certainly forgot how hard the tyre bashing was back in 88 on the Stalwart. I did notice the rust flap had June 68 stamped on it, Made in England too.
  21. I hate reading about these types of things, but I guess it happens in certain places http://www.newsweek.com/moscow-soviet-tank-contraband-kazakhstan-571757

  23. Super Truckers, Metcalfe Farms

    A new series of Super Truckers started on Quest last night featuring the M.O.Ds favoured haulier Metcalfe Farms, could be quite interesting but I bet that they didn't film the Mastiff door coming open and taking out the pelican crossing in Trowbridge or Ridgbacks falling off trailers when offloading. I've just watched last nights episode and was absolutely gobsmacked to see them transporting the Green Goddess that I was looking at last weekend in Harome (pronounced hareum as in scareum). I grew up in Harome and the building with the big windows behind the truck when they were off loading was my old primary school. I didn't envy the driver negotiating the road from Helmsley to Harome as it is rather narrow and twisty.
  24. According to the BBC - The figures show that 7,270 AFVs were sold in January, gaining a 4.2% market share Sadly not what it seems, despite the acronym AFV being used for a long time to mean Armoured Fighting Vehicles, there is a new kid on the block Alternatively Fuelled Vehicles. So you may soon see lets more cars sporting the window sticker my other vehicle is an AFV....... pity it would be nice to see more armour on the roads :-D Julian
