  1. Hi Mark, how's the restoration of your Schwimmer coming along?
  2. I wanted to reach-out and ask if anyone could help me find a Schwimmwagen (late style) original Abdeckblech fur Wasserschraube (Tafel 22/48) please? I do have an (early style) original Abdeckblech fur Wasserschraube which I am happy to swap (for a late style) which is quite rare, but also have some Schwimmwagen/Kübelwagen mechanical parts that I'm happy to swap if needed. Many thanks for looking...
  3. Hi, Has anyone got any reference photos of unit marking on vehicles belonging to 9 Fallschirmjäger Regiment (9.FJR) which was part of 3 Fallschirmjäger Division (3.FJD)? I’m interested to know if Regimental (9.FJR) or Division (3.FJD) insignia were used? Many thanks…
  4. Hi, Does anyone know what the serial numbers were of the six M8 Greyhounds captured by the Germans from the US 14th Cavalry Group, 18th Reconnaissance Squadron, very early in the morning on (I believe) December 18th 1944 during the Ardennes Offensive please? Also, does anyone have any photos of a captured “Beute” M8 Greyhounds they could share please? Many thanks...
  5. I understand that Marmite, but I didn't say having an FAC gave Andy or I any rights to acquire/keep Black Powder, and understand that you would need an Explosives License (and not an FAC). I spent 11 years in the army, my trade being EOD and have probably more experience with explosives than most Explosive Licensing Officers but am not going to swing any lampshades or pull-up any sandbags as what I was inferring to was building trust and showing that I am responsible...
  6. Firstly congratulations. Secondly regarding the black powder question. I wanted to do the are but thought "small steps", let me prove myself before asking to load my own blanks so I didn't ask. After all you could "theoretically" create live ammunition. However I was surprised when I receive my Section 1 FAC in the post when it read
  7. Hi AlienFTM, many thanks for the sharing your experiences. Hi LarryH57, I am looking for someone who specialises in spray painting, as well as someone who knows (in detail) about the colours and colour schemes used by the Wehrmacht in Normandy and the Ardennes. Hi 06Pzkpfw-e, many thanks for the A&S lead.
  8. I wanted to ask if anyone knew of someone who specialises in painting WW2 German vehicle and the associated colour schemes please? Many thanks, Martin
  9. Just to let you know that I've found a site called "World War Wheels Wehrmacht" http://rolfask.proboards.com It seems very good and as the name suggests, focuses on vehicles of the Wehrmacht (wheeled and tracked despite the name).
  10. Thanks David, I know Bart Lemmens and am registered on his site (in fact if it wasn't for Bart I wouldn't have my Schwimmwagen). I also (believe) I'm registered on the the Wehrmacht-Awards board and will investigate the 'Achtung Panzer'-section. What I was trying to articulate in the thread was that it would great to have a centralised forum where WW2 German vehicle specialists can be identified and saught, likewise with people with parts for sale. Warmest regards, Martin
  11. Given the rarity now of WW2 German military vehicles, artillery and their evocative nature, I just wanted to ask if anyone knew of a group or forum for WW2 German vehicle owners/enthusiasts in mind? I ask as I do not know of a group or forum specifically for owners/enthusiasts of WW2 German artillery, mortars, motorcylces, softskin or tracked vehicles can meet to ask technical questions, share and exchange photos or buy/sell spares? I know that I am posting on the German Vehicle forum, but it has 174 threads in comparrison to the British Vehicle for having 2,264... This has become apparent as I start a restoration of a '43 Stoewer Typ 40 and am looking for a number of parts but am at a loss of who to contact.
  12. Hi Mark, I've just realised that the event is this month, has is past or is it next weekend? Anyhow, just to let you know that I think I've found the contact number of the owner of the replica Kübelwagen in Southend you were looking for (01702 334375). It seems it's made on a left hand drive 1964 VW. http://www.volkszone.com/VZi/showthread.php?t=762118 Best regards, Martin
  13. I came across the site last month but didn't realise it was largely a replica. Do you have any information regarding the restoration and what is/is not original?
