  1. Thanks for taking the time to change all the links to your pictures. Without them it's just not the same.

  2. Gun is the Accurate – Armour 1/35th scale BL 5.5” Medium Field Gun. I built this resin kit many years ago. It can be built in firing or transport mode and with a little work can be modelled in both positions, the gun also comes with loose ammunition, boxes and loading tray. The figures are a mixture of Bronco, from 25 pdr crew and RIICH 3” Mortar Team in NWE and their 6 pdr crew all with a few tweaks. The gun has seen better days and this needs replacing with a new styrene kit and figures both in firing and transport poses. Cheers Kevin

  3. I also broke down the bogies as far as I could but 2 arms are seized and 2 cluster won’t split down but I will win. I will try and get a photo of the right idler as it has some battle damage, namely a bullet hole with a corresponding strike mark and then another strike mark a few inches further on. I thought at first that something solid had got into the idler wheel but the hole and deformed steel leaves me convinced it’s battle damage.

  4. I’ve not achieved much recently but I pulled the tarp off to get to some other parts. This photo shows where I’m at, at the moment. Next step will be to get the cab floor out so I can look at what I need to replace (I suspect the whole floor and supports). And after that, remove the whole cab.

  5. As you know the plan is to restore the Peerless as a recovery truck from the 1st Mobile Repair Unit based at St Omer. Very happily we managed to locate the original blue prints for this body type. I have attached a section of them. Within the equipment description is a "mountain gun lifting tripod". You can see this on the side of the lorry and on a different version in use on a ditched lorry. We had always referred to them as shear legs. I presume they were used to assemble the component parts of a mountain gun, but i have never come across one before. We may have to manufacture a replica. Do

  6. It's not far from the RAAF Airbase at Richmond NSW, but in the short term I'm going to see how far I get backpacking a Tirfor hand winch in cheers Phill

  7. Interesting find! Is there a college or training school nearby - helicopter/ recovery/ military who might want a training exercise? Even a group of motivated scouts?

  9. The first of the two Brake Bands now has its ends riveted on but still the second one to do. Riveting just a little awkward for one pair of hands but the "gallows! helps. The temporary screws removed one at a time and then the vacant screw hole takes the rivet. All 3/16"
