  1. Up for sale my old SCR 399 remote control unit, quite a lump to lug around the shows. This unit is used upto about 1/4 mile away from the radio truck which holds the main transmitter. This set has the complete battery and radio chest, chair, legs for the chest, a compleat set of aerials in bag, a working BC312 radio, JB60 junction box (very hard to find). The radio chest is complete with speaker fuse box and light. All you need for a working reenactment display, see pictures. £1500 for the unit.
  2. Would be good to do something, rare to find original equipment near a derelict structure, especially these days. The body is a basket case, so a carcass body representation would need to be built, it would only be for show, a mock up not a working restoration. Seeing as the army still own the land its theirs and they have the final say. I thought it would make a good project to get kids and locals involved in the build, teaching construction metalwork skills etc. That wont happen but there you go.
  3. I can see its a real basket case but its original to the site. I think it would be best just to leave it, its fenced off, unless someone comes up with bags of money and time to take on the challenge or better still spend the money on a restored one and display, store it and mainain it under cover as an example for the public viewing. I cant see that with councils these days, the area still owned by the MOD but looked after for public use by a organisation will have to fund and make the final say. Nick Jones do you live local to the area..
  4. Over a beer and chat with some friends, we were taking about road legal plates for vintage motorcycles and vintage military motorcycle plates, what's legal or not? I have seen over the years a few original WW2 German motorcycles and the R71 CJ750, Ural and Dnepr clones at the shows and riding around the UK roads the WH white background and black lettering licence plates, a recent example of a nice original DKW sidecar outfit with same type plates seen in the latest recent Classic Military Vehicle magazine, nice bike. Is there some form of exemption for these bike to have these type o
  5. A while back i discovered a Bofors gun emplacement and radar trailer 50 yards from each other in the Hogmoor training area near the REME tank training grounds after the Army moved out of Bordon Hampshire a while back. Built and operated by the Canadians during the war. The Bofors emplacement is now registered with Historic England by myself and the radar trailer fenced off which is in a state of disrepair. I am working with the town council and Historic England to preserve the emplacement as best we can. As with the radar Trailer a GL Number 3 Mk2, original to the emplacement, which was
  6. Fly the red flag with a white circle in the centre with a black squiggle and you will be defently in with the coucil especially if its East hants at penns palace.
  7. I knew a guy who was into steam engine tractors etc. His yard was full of very nice vintage cars and trucks. Every time people came to the yard he was offered generous money to save them for restoration but he refused saying they are valuable and rare and wouldn't sell anything he would get more money. When he died and they cleared his yard which he had tons of good stuff. Nearly all the vehicles fell to pieces and had passed any basket case restoration. At the estate auction there was hardly anything there vehicle wise. There was a Humber 1 ton truck the one they converted to the pig, pre pig
  8. I believe there is a After the Battle article write up about the scrap yard where most WW2 vehicles came from, it had all sorts. When i last visited about 10 years ago the sheds at the back were full of military vehicles. There was quite a lot of stuff under the flyover bridge which you had to go under to get to the yard. Funny place to get to.
  9. Most difficult part of building a replica tank In 1/1 or any scale is finding drawings with measurements or the original drawings. I am gathering informations and scaling models etc to build a A13 Mk2 Cruiser tank. Building part a piece of cake, getting correct sizes a bloody nightmare.
  10. Thanks Rick, i will certainly look forward to the visit, with all this Corona rubbish about it will have to be next year.
  11. Sorry to hear about the problems finding someone to tackle the engine. Great bit of kit the Covenanter, love to pop up one day and see it in the flesh.
