  1. Hi all, never uploaded all the pictures of the restoration. Got a question if I would so here we go. Hereby the rest of the pictures, as you can see we had a headgasket failure but eventually all worked out. Hope you like the pictures. Some minor work I want to do in the future is to paint the vehicle in CAMO (Black and Green) and adjust carb / rev limiter settings.
  2. We make reproduction of the rear armor to have an idea of what we do, check out this link of a Halftrack M5A1 restoration we did for a client. http://www.baiv.nl/contact/halftrack-m5-2-2/

We have a small extra quantity that are also for sale for EURO 168,- each. If you require one please let us known at info@baiv.nl
  11. Believe Adrian is correct did you have any more picture from this? The yard is not ours but we are restoring 2 Comets tanks, were off 1 came from this location the T335252.
  12. Hi we are currently restoring a Comet tank. This Comet is built by Leyland under contract M9707 in March 1945 and given the makers number B2-563 W.D.N T335252. The Comet has been used by British Forces during the WW-II and after the war with the post war registration 14-ZR-34. It remained in service till the early sixties. At 13 October 1964 it was transfered from the Royal Armoured Corps to the Royal Army Medical Corps, were it probably was used as a Gate Guard. After this the Comet was stationed outside the Sennelager Barracks close to Paderborn in Germany. In 1994 it was recovered and partly restored and now it is back again in restoration to complete and perseve this lovely tank. Interesting to note that according to the makers plate it is a Mk 1 model A version, but it has the older style turret with the improved comander cupola ring (stronger), which I believe is a model B feature or am I incorrect and is also A related? There could also be the possiblity that the turret was replaced during it's service due to damage on the original turret? Would anyone have more information on this Comet? Would be lovely to find at which regiment it served or that there are any pictures from even, could be a change that there are some post-war pictures (14 ZR 34) or when it was a Gate Guard. http://www.baiv.nl/wp-content/uploads/2015/10/Comet-T335252-history-2.jpg http://www.baiv.nl/wp-content/uploads/2015/10/Comet-Celerity-1951.jpg We have more picture of the restoration on our facebook page or website http://www.baiv.nl/comet-2/ https://www.facebook.com/pages/BAIV-BV/103397456456403 Kind regards Ivo
