  1. Not sure if this helps- https://forums.g503.com/viewtopic.php?t=292908
  2. Engine number XXE3284 Chassis/contract number 294/23/S1946
  3. It is an SD2 butterfly bomb. We were finding loads of stuff like that in the area. It seems that although the area was used as training ranges post war, and post 1969, during the war it was a battle area.
  4. You could try this. Had it for years. The pipe goes hard but as soon as it touches fuel again, it goes soft - https://www.amazon.co.uk/Silverline-451324-Jiggle-Siphon/dp/B002QRWGLQ/ref=sr_1_3?dchild=1&keywords=Fuel+jiggler&qid=1595603929&sr=8-3
  5. Thanks for correcting me on that. If they haven’t been removed I think there were more than 20 dotted around the area.
  6. Thanks, there was loads more stuff in the area. I had photographs of an italian army fort further south and across the main highway, artillery positions, a blown up Ford F30 truck which was 20 yards away from the anti tank mine pictured above, but unfortunately the computer it was all saved on was appropriated against my will by some locals when things blew up over there. I remember that my survey guys had camped near the blown up truck on top of a small mound which had a rubble wall around it. Remembering the old army trick of booby trapping an abandoned Laying Up Position, I went to the loca
  7. The thread might be fantastic, but it seems that most of the pictures have disappeared. Or is that just my ipad doing that?
  8. I was on these ranges in 2009. South of Ajdabiya and north of Ojala. I think they were LVT4s and apart from them, there were also some ex Malta Garrison Bofors L/70s all of which were used for target practice. I will trawl through my files and post pics of the most accessible items, and also ordnance which I came across in the area. I never went anywhere near the amphibious vehicles which were up on the hills in the area although they seemed to be much more intact than the ones I photographed. It was just too dangerous given the amount of ordnance lying around. The ordnance I photographed was
  9. Thought this might be of interest to someone- https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/MILITARY-TRACTION-ENGINES-AND-LORRIES-1858-1918-R-W-KIDNER-1975-TRANSPORT/324224283051?hash=item4b7d45f1ab:g:EhwAAOSw-8lfBydE
  10. Someone mentioned Staman regarding Jeep parts in another thread, and not having heard of them, found their website. Looked at their advert for a Rogers trailer and there seems to be a pontoon on it, which is very similar to what is shown in the pictures, albeit a smaller size. What is it, does anyone know? https://staman.nl/ex-army-roger-trailer.html
  11. Following the instructions to the letter and using the stuff provided in the appropriate measures stops it peeling off. If the tank isn’t degreased thoroughly and cleaned with acid properly, the sealant won’t adhere or cure, pure and simple. It’s actually in the instructions which come with the stuff. Most probably, the degreaser and acid weren’t applied properly and for long enough and/or weren’t removed totally before putting the sealant in. When the sealant cures, it’s so hard that you can’t even break it with a sledge hammer (yes, I tried), and forms a tank within the tank.
  12. There is one of their members who’s restoring a Land Rover Lightweight by the username of Loulou who is very active on the militarylightweight.co.uk forum, if that helps.
  13. I think Gunze Sangyo made the WC11 model, if that helps. Good luck with your hunt! And yes, you did ask this before, but the answer then was CGM models.
  14. My word! I’ve taken my hat off to you so many times that my arm is now in traction. If only I had one tenth of your skill set. Thank you for carrying out this build, and thanks for taking the time to keep us updated. Well done!
  15. In Richard’s own words -
