  1. The winch is looking good I went through the same pains about two months ago and now on to wood work for the back.

    I still have the rear axle to free up and sort but keep putting it off.

    i have a complete fan though will probably need the bearings replaced and your right I didn’t venture out for photos today will try tomorrow.

  2. I have 5 pioneers in various states one of which is a past repair rolling chassis so have been using it for parts, most of the parts I have are from the chassis rather than cab parts. 
    I’m near Southampton so not to far from you I think.

    your welcome to the roller I’ll have a look if there is a loose one if not I can take one off.


  3. I have the top part of the fifth wheel that is sat on flat plates that works well with the swan neck but missing the bottom dish shaped plate and the rubber discs that bolt to the chassis.

    I have emailed thunder models to see what info or drawings they have or at least how accurate they are but whether they will be willing to give out information I’m unsure, so here’s hoping 

  4. Thank you for the input,  I have a scale drawing of the tractor and trailer together but it doesn’t show the more detailed individual parts and how they are connected, I have sourced a pair of axles which is probably the only part that couldn’t be replicated but the hope of finding any other major parts is pretty slim, I have had many conversations with people that remember cutting them up in the past hills of botley cut a few up which is a real shame.

    I have a Scammell swan neck four in line trailer that Tom Osborne adapted to go behind, it looks the part but want to look at the possibilities of making a replica.

  5. Sorry to bring this up again but after scratching about on the block tonight I have found more of the darker blue paint under the old desert and what I believe is the eau de nil and wondered if this colour has been seen on other war time engines?
