  1. Long story but this was built by someone who then lost interest due to a relationship break down and subsequently sold the vehicle on. He too has left the hobby. This is a replica I'm afraid.
  2. It was nice to finally meet you steve, and admire your lovely jeep.
  3. More info required! I live in 8th Airforce country (I think) and would love to come and meet and see these projects in the flesh that I have read so much about!
  4. If I come this year, can I NOT have the same "tucked out the way" spot as last year? I do appreciate the hard work that goes into organising these things, and I know it wasnt a conscious thing but from where I was sat it didnt work for two reasons. Everyone thought I was with EMLRA. With the areana on one side of me, and the car park infront of me, most of the public didnt realise that thier was another bit, beyond the car park. I had two freinds come to see me there, and both admitted that they hadnt seen me after walking round what they thought was the entire show. I had to go and ge
  5. Yours is a 90 too, lol, looks like someone has bolted an extra few inches on when you werent looking then bud... It is a wonderful Landy tho, you have done a good job there.
  6. Ok, well here is my 90 Wolf FFR too....
  7. Nope, Barrie has never owned 10FG57, he had 10FG69, 10FG97 which were both pink, and he has a green and black one, though I cant remember that ones reg..... Alan bought 10FG57 in the late 90's direct off of Steve.
  8. Nope, that is Steve's old Pinkie that is now owned by Alan Bucknell. He is one of the nicest chaps I have had the pleasure to meet. Real salt of the earth....
  9. no, your pic is of the prototype of the ones shown by clive. It is a Jordainian border patrol Vehicle. It was built by land rover and Glover Webb conversion (glover Webb built the 110 Pinkies....) So grit in eye, The milan mount was on it before Barrie bought it. I have Pictures of it in Pete Greens shed with the mount on it, and at that time it was still owned by the guy you rebuilt it for. So what happened to the original bumper that came off of it then. mine has now also got the correct winch on it, It had one originally but the scrappy kept it for his own off road vehicle. I
  10. O,Catweazle, the tyres are Continental Mils......
  11. When I got mine, it had already been broken into component parts ready for the crusher. it was all in a pile. Here are some of the parts as received, you can see just how bad it was..... Here is me driving 24KD33 Here is 24KD49 And here is a green and black one back in 1994 when they were still in service with the boys..
  12. Yep, I know that one very well. Driven it once or twice, it is know one of the ones owned by Barrie. If I rememberit was also re chassied onto a civvie chassis. It was the first out, sold by accident through the auctions (its VRN is 24KD50), the second (24KD33) came out in about 2000, via a contact on the inside, and mine (24KD58) was amoungst the last, coming out of the scrap yard in 2005 when they were scrapped. Some have remained inside the system (24KD39 is one of these, but if I told you where it was I would have to kill you....lol). 24KD38 went on long term loan to Land Rover, and ca
  13. And heres some Pics of mine from its LRO feature earlier this year. And here are some shots of the resto that should show the front mounted Anti roll bar and the rear with missing fuel tank (pinkies had tanks under the front seats, like the series land rovers)
  14. Not quite right mate..... there are three genuine SAS 110's in private ownership, I have one and my mate Barrie Pocock has the other two. The front Salisbury axle was also fitted to the 110 armoured landie, that was also built by Glover Webb of Hamble. The rear axle wasnt strengthend in any way, tho the gear box, springs and shocks were, anlong with the chassis. There are many ways to spot genuine from fake, the axle is one, but these can be bought and fitted to a standard rover. The easiest is the fron anti roll bar, mounts the the front of the chassis, not the rear like all other defenders.
  15. So....whos got the address for the home secretary ........and how do we start a government pertition thingy.... I am serious...... its time we stopped talkin about it and started to make our voices heard...... otherwise these people will not stop until our hobby is in tatters......
  16. Just read this.... http://uk.news.yahoo.com/pressass/20080105/tuk-pledge-to-outlaw-deactivated-guns-6323e80_1.html Will this government not stop. These knee jerk reactions are going to kill our hobby, and yet I cannot beleive it will have any affect on those scum that seem hell bent on killing each other. How are we going to stand up to this, or is our hobby doomed. :angry:
  17. I will be there in my Pinkie...... should be a couple of other pinkies turning up as well.....a gaggle of pinkies!!!!

  19. Andy Mcnab will be giving a talk at the Bovington Tank Museum on 1st Nov. Entry is from 18:30, with the talk starting from 19:30. Tickets are £12 but only 300 are available..... If you go you will also see my Pinkie there, as it is to be placed within the museum for this event. :-D
