  1. Seeing photos like that it is still hard to quite comprehend the enormity of what was left behind.
  2. Would Khaki Green No 3 still be the mix used in mid to late 1942?
  3. Thats a great project, been stored in the damp by the looks of the mushroom!
  4. Some very good finds and good your friend is on the look out too.
  5. There is a nice Commer Q4 3 tonner 3rd vehicle back.
  6. Is the 9 not the Bridge number? But from memory 9 is 6x4s and 6x6s etc so obviously heavier vehicles so do buses fit in that?
  7. It does note Q2 chassis and cab, 5111 of them on one of the pages?
  8. It is pricey like so many things on ebay these days!
  9. Saw this and thought of you. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/WW2-WOT-6-Truck-Dashboard/114418143997?hash=item1aa3da52fd:g:SD8AAOSwwolehJeB
  10. So do you think the number of Q2's built between 39 and August 43 of 6559 is correct?
  11. I like the work round the windscreen recess. Looks very neat.
  12. Looking very good. Another Commer on its way.
  13. Absolutely superb. Just goes to show what can be achieved with some thought, planning and teamwork.
  14. Looks great, a really good collection of wartime uniforms.
  15. Sounds like a good buy. Anyone else bid and win anything?
  16. It says the Beverley has been bought by a local with access to an airfield?
  17. I wanted a specific manual, not the 10 or so others in the lot. I didnt fancy paying the fees and then postage on a joblot when I only wanted 1 of them. I am after a Commer Q2 30cwt manual and one was listed incorrectly in a postwar manual lot.
  18. We were mainly interested in manuals, there were so many lots of books etc. Hundreds and hundreds of manuals, I wonder if most lots were bought up by dealers?
  19. Just looking through a Commer Instruction Book I have for the 3 tonner it actually lists all 1000 chassis and engine numbers under Contract Number 294/V/3604(Con'8). So I presume if I can find a similar Instruction Manual for a 30cwt it may list in the same style.
  20. We have watched a few lots and yes things have gone up quite a bit.
  21. I wonder if they havent had much interest selling it privately?
  22. I wonder if it will end up going for scrap? Would be a shame if it did.
  23. Is this the K2 that is advertised on Milweb at the moment?
