  3. How it looks today, the present owner posted some pictures on Facebook
  4. Yes in that range, but very depending on originality. They are quite complex and can be expensive to restore, but there is still a large demand for them
  5. That looks very nice, It shouldn't be hard to sell. With regards to pricing, I know that complete but full restoration project was sold last year for what is equivalent to 8500£
  6. The bonnet and grill looks very much like a Thornycroft Amazon
  7. Its story is apparently , It was sold to the USA in 65, then it moved to Canada in a major collection. The collection was donate to a museum, but the bus was discarded due to no canadian history. In 86 it was sold to a Denmark where it had been hiding for about 30 years.
  8. I Just spotted this Bus being restored in Denmark, is it the same body type ? https://www.facebook.com/Autobus1918
  9. The rear wheels looks to be tank Road wheels
  10. Hi Rob Is there any particular application for the white eye pieces ?
  11. https://www.facebook.com/groups/2154401034884361/permalink/2997347300589726/?sale_post_id=2997347300589726 I just spottede this on facebook
  12. It does remind med of a : Bedford OXD 30cwt, that belonged to a LRDG/SAS collector named Peter Sanders. it was yes done up to look like a captured truck
  13. Just showing up with a regular BMW 700 will make look puzzled. But the 700 is a rather nice little car with a very potent engine
  14. There is a couple of very good ones for sale on MLU https://m.facebook.com/groups/MapleLeafUpForum/permalink/2702358086709212/
  15. A 1915 Latil is coming up for auction https://www.artcurial.com/fr/lot-1915-latil-type-tar-serie-p-no-reserve-4076-67
  16. If you don’t get hold of him let me know, I know where he lives
  17. You can also try scraping the paint, either with a flat chisel or the end of a large file. I found this much more efficient and less dirty than sanding on my Bedford. The old paint would once I applied a bit pressure start to flake off, it is of cause very manual labor task, takes some time and sanding cant be completely avoided but the result was nice and the flakes was much nicer to clean up rather than sanding dust.
  18. Pete do you have any problems with adhesion between the gloss black and the G3?
  19. S.C.C. 15 would only be if its built after April-ish, as they most like would have used up existing stock of S.C.C. 2 firstly. Here is a link to manual for painting of mechanical transport, https://www.paradata.org.uk/media/993 showing variation in the patterns and a link to https://www.mafva.org/british-vehicle-camouflage-1939-45/ a good source for the history of colour use
  20. So it’s a bit up to what you want to portray, If it’s early enough I would go for SCC 2
  21. https://www.flickr.com/photos/magnus_jo/albums/72157603887700850/with/35139057412/ https://www.sangbergkonstsmide.se/inspiration/terraeng-axel/ some more pictures from the yard.
  22. It was also used by the Carlsberg brewery until 45, and can still be seen on their old buildings
  23. I have not done much to my Ariel the last couple of years but found various missing parts, including a set of original mudguards, not the best condition but repairable, I got the flap for the rear guard from Egypt. And then this corona lock down pushed me to start working on my Ariel. By the looks, every bush and thread will need repair. So I have bought what I could get from draganfly, and the rest must be fabricated or sourced else where. The paint removal revealed SCC2 in many places and I have luckily found a good supplier in CZ https://www.facebook.com/camouflage.paints/
