  1. Well finally got it in the shed....definately not a lightweight Dashes are odd.. hand throttle... twin fuel tanks. Funny they didnt just fit standard UK army fittings. Its got tool mounts on the wings with an additional axe mount. i cannot see how a heater was fitted
  2. Chasing a light weight body and other bits if anyones got a rotten chassis one? Basically i miss my old Lightweight
  3. Cheers yep got a tirfor today to get it into the shed. But freezing tonight with drizzle Well not UK freezing but just miserable
  4. Dash is interesting, twin tanks, different tool mounts, reinforced diff
  5. Saw a 2a the other day and it followed me home.... The ADF ones have a lot of different mods
  6. yes i was thinking my initial post would be low level... but it has really been an interesting history lesson... One of the things i have always liked about this forum is learning stuff as its often fascinating
  7. So all in all, weird to be downunder as we went from Centurians, to Leopards to Abrahms
  8. https://www.facebook.com/marketplace/item/503947347185069/ states "Rolls Royce 6 cyl 12 piston 2 crankshaft horizontally opposed multifuel. Ex Swiss army tank. 104 hours since brand new. Runs well. $10k very rare" What would it have been fitted to?
  9. I think it is a relevant topic as most the people in here are in the susceptible age range. Also it is an unprecedented event. interesting info yesterday on the news was that people with A blood types are 63% more prone to serious symptoms. So be a safe as you can.... if you refuel your car wear gloves
  10. you might have seen this already https://www.pickles.com.au/campaigns/Online-Centurion-Battle-Tank-ARV-Sale
  11. ps did you see they tank bits I posted in merredin.... not sure if any of that track or wheels were of any use as they were lojoking at selling also
  12. totally unintentional....... but I did realise after I posted most of my is riddled with hidden airstrip so most likely bits all over the place but really remote... ie 7 hours of desert road driving well a bit less as Mr has no speed limits so was sitting on 130...140kmh when I went up that way when I was a kid the govt had banged oversized star pickets into all the runways as the drug runners were using them
  13. maybe we can scale it off my boot.... I'll me asure it tomorrow... is it a big difference?
  14. everything is bigger in Aus 😂
  15. I might be going up that way in a few months
  16. my guess is maybe peanuts as they don't know what it is..... I should of asked if any othere hunks of steel were laying around... from memory about 3 hours ne of Alice springs
  17. Spotted this in the middle of nowhere at a place called Tilmouth Well really off the beaten track...I would bet they don't know what their footpath is
  18. all sounds good... I hate seeing something like this going outside the family.... maybe they all moved down here after the war
  19. I like it all started with a magazine for a gun
  20. great thread...great fab skills
  21. Well I assume it's UK as the address is to a Mr E.W. McDermid (I think) at Prestwick Ayrshire... can't read the street. Anyone got any contacts in that area that might be able to find relatives?
  22. I wonder if vapour degreasing would clean the entrapped oil out. Best cleaning system ever made. Normally found in RAAF (RAF) NDI labs. The original chemical is banned but I believe they use a replacement.
