  1. Hi Lado, Genuine replacement armoured glass is both rare and expensive. Last I saw was about £500 each for the drivers and passengers windscreen and around £250 each for the side windows.

This can be fixed by removing the glass, separating the layers, removing the thin middle sheet of plastic and reassembling. However this does mean that they are no longer bullet proof.

  2. Anyone know whether the automotive i.e. not stuff required to support military equipment (radios?) complies with the OBDII standard.

  3. There is a Taskers Trailer Scammel coupling 1930/40`s currently up on eBay. The front small and narrow two wheels appear slightly different to other pictures I found while having a 'google' (always like to learn about new and different mechanical items 😉 However given that it has a scammel coupling and the same or very similar layout would that do?
  4. Found this online here: https://www.wehrmacht-awards.com/forums/forum/wehrmacht-uniforms-and-equipment/achtung-panzer-forum/948167-fresh-find-five-panzer-werkzeugkasten-mit-inhalt-identify-please#post7183007 Now it's possible that the term applies to No. 3 tool box and that the toolbox is different for each model of vehicle but thought it might help.
  5. i'm used to the maintenance british military vehicles being for the bloody minded and those of a masochistic nature. but this activity seems to have been designed by a particularly skilled sadist determined to break the will of anyone foolish enough to want to own a ferret 🤣😂 congratulations on beating the 'designer' on this one and thank you for sharing the 'kowledge'
  6. is it not one of these - Jupiter Invader Pump? http://www.jupiterinvaderpump.com
  7. Hi Jon, haven't read this web page in detail bit it lists different accessories for the MG34 and one of them is the Zuberhorkasten, and has various pictures of lists of associated equipment. Hope it may help. https://www.bergflak.com/ezvkasten.html Cheers Julian
  8. I think this thread would make a great book once the project is complete. It's much more detailed than what has been published to date on the TWC Panther.
  9. It's great, and often overlooked, the important contribution to keeping historic information which would otherwise be lost. Kudos to you Wally, your friend and everyone who squirrels away stuff that would otherwise be lost to history.
  10. I think the blue thing is a dovetail jig for use with a woodworking router, similar to this found on the web
  11. Hi Rotes 75, do you have additional information on your fathers regiments/battalion as this may help tie down where he was being sent.
  12. Like a lot of other I have been finding this thread very interesting and it has prompted be to do much more investigation/reading on the web with couple of books on the way too. I thought I would share this web page that I found (getting better at this tech stuff) http://www.wwiiequipment.com/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=125:british-equipment-losses-at-dunkirk-and-the-situation-post-dunkirk&catid=50:other-articles&Itemid=61 Why lists what was lost but also looks at was was left in the UK and how the equipment situation improved between 1st June a

  15. Quick 'Google' found this. Gwen Eagle was a 40ft long twin screw motor cruiser built by William Osborne Ltd in Littlehampton in 1938. Her owner, Donald Hudson, lived in Hove and was a member of the Sussex Motor Yacht Club in Brighton. There is also a brief mention in the book 'The miracle of Dunkirk'
  16. Fantastic job as always. Sadly it looks like I will have to wait until next years show season to catch up with her somewhere in the UK 😞 As for knees and backs, as the saying goes 'Old age doesn't come alone' lol
  17. Another gr8 and innovative solution. The upper hull looks really fab. 👍
