  1. I have read your so called drivel three times from the start till now, incredible work, great reading and pictures, keep up the great work Unbelievable project..
  2. Hope this is not too far of topic, but an interesting guidance article by the CAA regarding Aircraft restoration or replica, ---------------------------------------------------------- An early inspection from CAA design and airworthiness surveyors will allow us to make a decision on whether the aircraft will be an original or a replica. There is no set minimum amount of the original aircraft required to allow the project to be considered a restoration. However, there must be something recognisable from the aircraft for it to be classed as original, normally primary structure and generally from the fuselage, even if these parts are subsequently replaced. The aircraft's data plate will be key in establishing its original identity. Where this is no longer available evidence from historians or published material can be used and a replacement data plate made. This should include the serial number and manufacturer. We will check that a restoration has not previously been approved for the same airframe identity. Where there is no record of the manufacturer's serial number but a military serial is known then this may be used. In some countries a registration may be re-used on more than one airframe. This can result in an aircraft in existence where only the paperwork remains from the original and it is in fact a 'donor' aircraft. In the UK this is not accepted and genuine provenance of the actual airframe will need to be shown. However, if no other aircraft on the UK register is currently painted with the same markings then a donor aircraft does not have to be physically marked as such but it must be recorded in its paperwork.
  3. Very confusing to show it SOLD, when in fact they are going to submit a provisional bid. So not sold at all yet---------- HA HO meant to watch the auction, many lots there gain provisional bids.
  4. Just checking my post to find last bid to be submitted at £14 K,------- Screenshot says SOLD, but maybe its not.?????????
  5. A Locomobile, taken at Sudbury Mammoth Rally some year ago, think it lives in Suffolk ------------------------------ open in new tab. PAULS TRIPS OUT 2082.mpg
  6. Sorry no idea, the above picture was given to me by a friend. There is another picture found on this forum of the Tilling's chassis and a little of the removed body in the background, as before location unknown.
  7. The body in the background, having been removed from the Tilling's chassis, location unknown
  8. Can you offer any history of the bus body, I think I recognise it, from many years ago, may be the one I recovered, from the Hogs Back, was behind a butchers, and was put on a Tilling's chassis. here in Colchester,
  9. More here scroll down to map.--https://www.military-airshows.co.uk/press19/daks-over-normandy-duxford.htm Not sure what the two lines are hope they are going down the middle, right over our heads at Great Horkesley, not easy to understand!
  10. Never seen or heard of such a thing that was supplied with the K2Y, but very happy to learn.
