  1. I can imagine... perhaps "not-so-fast-install"... I had an MOT fail... broken pin on the hand-brake (which worked fine when I took it into the MOT station, but failed on the test)... the MOT station said "Simple fix", but unfortunately we dont have the part. Just down the road was nnnn... I stopped, told them what the issue was... though I didnt tell them I'd just come out of the MOT test at this point... they said they needed to put the car on the jacks, then pulled the wheels off... then left me waiting for 45 mins and then presented me with a bill for £650 (in 1992) for a whole string

  3. It is surprising what parts are still out there. I am constantly finding Firefly bits which I assumed would have become unobtainium by now. Tim
  4. Scale model bailey bridge kits (presumably for training) pop up for sale on ebay and g503 forum from time to time. Not sure if they have included the pontoon units, but perhaps worth consideration?
  5. There are electric HGV solutions available... prices for the engine and battery conversion start at 250k gbp. http://www.emoss.nl/en/electric-vehicles/ They will push a loaded HGV around at decent speeds. Tim
  6. Am looking for an example of the WS19 Control Box / Control Unit No12 to assist me with a restoration project. As per image below. Please let me know if you have one for sale - any condition considered. Cheers Tim
  7. Nice looking vehicle. I have mine marked to Phantom GHQ liaison Regiment... fitted with the Canadian WS9 radio Tim
  8. Pretty sure there is someone on the Maple Leaf Up forum at the moment asking for Photos of WSC in Canadian service. Not you by any chance? Tim
  9. 6pdr Portee.... nice... and different. I guess next you'll be making a 6pdr?
  10. Danny Correct there are two tours The Dutch (Keep them Rolling?) one "Stichting operation Market Garden" which is open to any vehicle and any clothing styles. The LTF one which is recreating the British 30 corps - so is only open to vehicles which would have been used by 30 corps at the time... and for which the vehicle crews have made an effort to wear authentic uniform and have authentic equipment. If you want British vehicles etc... then the LTF tour is the one to follow.,, You need to look at their facebook page to find out where they are now and where they will
  11. Danny Take a look at the Liberation Task Force page on Facebook. Unfortunately I am not in the Netherlands to know what their timetable is for sure. Tim
