  4. Not much progress at the moment, I’ve managed to bare metal the roof and it’s not as bad as I thought 🤥 A couple of coats of bonda to protect it and show what needs repairing Now ......I don’t want to blow my own trumpet.......but .......I pretty confident that when I am finished you won’t see a single repair !! You’ll see about 50 😬

  6. Remember the rather grim sitcom Hi-de-Hi? Someone on the internet has traced every bit of stock footage used in the opening titles! HERE I think the source of the SRN-1 hovercraft clip will be of interest as it's from a Combined Services Exercise in 1959. It shows an amphibious assault on the beach at Eastney. Lots of kit on display. Combined Services Exercise 1959

  8. Try E Dobson &Co., Keighley. They made the copper non-asbestos gaskets for my Karrier (and numerous other projects). Just send them an old gasket to copy (in a self-sealing polythene bag) or knock out a paper template. Quick turnaround and very reasonable on price (or at least I thought so). Doc.

  14. Hello all, I've been some initial reassembling of my bike and have come to reposition the left hand side storage wedge. Unfortunately the rear brake lever and rod clash with the end of the box - this can't be right surely? It does perhaps explain why the end corner was all bashed in when I got the bike.... How should this area be please? Thank you, Martin

  15. Evening All, If I decide to build another tank it would probably be a Panzer iv but that would probably be a project too far. I have been trying to finish the turret, all the little fiddly detail bits that I didn't have enough information for. There's a marker attached to the hull just below the turret ring to show when the turret is facing the front that needed adding. Whilst I had completed the wiring up to the slip ring in the base of the hull, I hadn't done anything about the wiring in the turret. The wires run from the slip ring up the leg of the commanders cha

  16. Hello everyone, As you know, our 2020 show was cancelled due to the uncertainty surrounding the virus. This was a tough and risky decision but ultimately, this turned out to be the correct call and minimised our losses to only the rent of our field and some miscellaneous expenses. Covid-19 Coronavirus and its variants remains a threat, and we will be monitoring the situation closely, and evaluating the feasibility of the show in a COVID-secure fashion, however, as has been demonstrated, government guidelines are subject to changes at short notice.

  21. You should start with acquiring a parts book and a maintenance manual. However there will not be a one shop stop for Triumph singles spares. Individual parts and overhaul facilities will have to be sourced through the internet or asking through these forums. These Triumph parts are harder to come by than most other makes in my experience. As far as bearings are concerned, they will all have numbers stamped on them, which can then usually be matched by a good bearing company.......Not quite as easy when it comes to other engine parts I'm afraid and wheel bearings for these are almost obsol

  24. Hello If you don't mind a reproduction tent. Sofmilitary have a lot of different tents. There is also www.canvastentshop.co.uk They have 'patrol tents' which look like a 160lb tent and similarly sized. As well as different fly sheets. They come in green and brown. The one downside to them is that they appear to have plastic webbing straps for keeping the doors open. Dan

  37. You may have to put a tap through to clean it up. Try removing the threaded section on the other side and fitting the screw to see if that side tightens up. The screw should go tight but the slide bit should remain loose. The anti rattle spring fits between the 2 to erm, anti rattle lol.

  41. Evening All, I had quite a productive weekend making lots of little items for the linkage from the remote trigger in the turret gearbox to the MG, so now you can see how it operates. The other item was the cover that goes over the turret ring gear, well it's nearly finished but I was requested to make some biscuits by my dear wife and I know never to argue where the biscuit box is empty. Until next time thanks for looking. Jon

  48. The military vehicles and replica tanks and armoured cars used on Bridge too Far were all supplied and built by the late Charlie Mann who ran a Military museum in Cornwall, he also built the 6 wheeler Mercedes truck used in the chase scene on the original Indiana Jones film, it was based on a ww2 GMC 6X6, after he died Southerbys auctioned everything off. The Dodge based 4x4 Armoured car was built on a 1950's US Military M43 Ambulance chassis/running gear, the replica body was not armoured but just sheet steel construction, very convincing even close up.
