  1. Had you seen this? https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Humber-1ton/273019443063?hash=item3f913a1777:g:3SwAAOSw61haVkTB Nic
  2. This is the sort of thing you're all so good at - https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Military-Mobile-Container-Unit-Camper-caravan-Project-Zombie-Bunker/183008952469 What was it then... the seller never found out, but writes it up amusingly. Nic

  4. A pair of Pigs offered on ebay! https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/152828131844?ul_noapp=true Nic
  5. Everything has a price, but I'm not actively looking to sell it. You will find one elsewhere far cheaper than I'd be prepared to part with this one. Keep looking and one will come along. Good luck. Nic
  6. Paul, I wondered when you'd spot your old warhorse - I bought it from Dave Powell about 2 years back when he was downsizing his collection. He'd done a lot of work on the brakes, so it didn't need a great deal doing when I acquired it. Dave passed on it's paperwork and some old photos so I saw you featured in the text! It now lives near Thirsk, North Yorkshire., and has been to some of the 'Northern Shows' over the time I've had it - YWE, Croft, YMVT Crank-Up in York and the NEMVC event at Ryhope. I had it returned to the Olive Drab and Adam Wright of MV Depot at Helperby refit
  7. Oddly I have a Mk1 Pig that looks like a Mk2! 30BK43 was one of two that spent the 'Troubles' as training aids in barracks in Kent, so while it is 'dressed' as an NI operational vehicle it was never up-armoured. Probably has one of the best Pig drive trains in the world as a consequence. They don't come up for sale often. There was one on ebay recently asking over £10K - I don't know whether it sold. Maintainance is straight forward, but time consuming. In the order of 90 different lubrication points underneath - some take grease, some SAE30, some EP90..... Spares are an issue -
  8. Anyone got a spare Pig exhaust system hidden in their spares box? I have a good home for one! Failing the legendary NOS item has anyone any ideas on a modern commercial silencer box that could be adapted for the purpose? Thanks in anticipation! Nic 30BK43 .
  9. I hope to take my Pig to YWE again this year. Only one there in 2016! Maybe see you there. Nic
  10. I have a couple of 432 hoods and there are some differences from this one. The ones I have are like this current ebay offering http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/British-Army-FV430-Series-APC-Hatch-Cover-Hood-Windscreen-FV-432-433-434-Abbot-/151897199944?hash=item235dc75548:g:f5EAAOSw8-tWWGS6 Note the cover is a plastic material not the canvas shown on this example. If it is a 430 hood it's an early model, so probably quite rare. (I acquired the second hood intending to cut away the side panels and replace them with heavy duty see through plastic - as Dale says there's zero side vision

  12. You have my sympathies. I simply couldn't run my vehicles without the small team that help me ... and for larger tasks on the 436 with help from the members of the 432 forum. You need to find a fellow Stalwart owner or two in your neck of the woods and help each other out on major tasks. Regret that I can't offer more physical or practical support from deepest Yorkshire. Think positive - Summer is promised and at least the weekends in the barn won't be freezing..... Nic Stalwart/436/Pig
  13. Probably worth going back to the source! http://www.legislation.gov.uk/ukpga/2006/38/contents See sections 36 and 37. 37(7) says - “historical re-enactment” means any presentation or other event held for the purpose of re-enacting an event from the past or of illustrating conduct from a particular time or period in the past; This is a CPS (Crown Prosecution Service) explanation - http://www.cps.gov.uk/legal/d_to_g/firearms/#a04 [h=4]Realistic Imitation Firearms[/h]From 1 October 2007, section 36 Violent Crime Reduction Act 2006 created an offence to manufacture, bring int
  14. Or maybe not? https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Texas_(locomotive) Western & Atlantic Railroad #49 "Texas" is a 4-4-0 "American" type steam locomotive built in 1856 for the Western & Atlantic Railroad by Danforth, Cooke & Co..
