  1. Always looking to fill gaps in my knowledge. There is a trailer adverstised on Milweb as RAF Taskers Aircraft Recovery Trailer didn't mean much to me so I did a bit of googling. Only real links I could find were to Taskers producing the Queen Mary Trailer in WWII, but the add says this is a Post War trailer, is this just a late version of a Queen Mary (the name does at least ring some bells), or did Taskers manufacturer a newer version after the war. Sadly for the seller I'm not looking to buy, although combined with an example of the same type of Bedford in the pictures I think
  2. good afternoon everyone. I have a 1962 land rover series 2a 109 that research suggests was a tow truck fitted with a harvey frost crane inservice with the RAF. I have tried to find any photos of such a vehicle in RAF service. I would like to get it restored to show condition but need something to work with. As an aside can anyone advise what uniform you might expect the operator to have been wearing in the 60's. Blue coveralls perhaps? any help greatly appreciated. cheers Paul
  3. I have just found this picture of a Mosquito being refuelled by a AEC 6x6 tanker in some of my fathers old photos sorry for the quality but it is a photo of a 33mmx33mm contact print. It is post war but I am not sure if it was taken at Coningsby or when he was in Egypt any info would be welcome. Simon
  4. Hi I have had a great interest in these vehicle for many years and had done quite a bit of research already, I had considered building a replica of a Beaverette but other projects got in the way. I was then fortunate enough to come across one available for the 1st time in 20+ years so snapped it up. So as the dream is now a reality I now need to crack on, hence my post on here. Does anyone have any photo's, information, manuals, parts suppliers, links to suppliers/sources of information etc, or parts relevant to Beaverette's as I now have one which I am in the process of restori
  5. Hi Folks, I have been asked by the RSM of the Defence Academy at Shrivenham, Wiltshire, if anyone with ww2 era Military Vehicles would like to attend their Music and Fireworks event on 12 Jul 2018. They are also celebrating the RAF 100, so if anyone has a RAF vehicle even better. You don’t get paid for the event, but its free entry for you and a guest and last year the attendees were fed and watered in the Mess. PM me or drop me a email at nickparsons8891@yahoo.co.uk. if you are interested in attending this charitable event. Thanks In advance. Regards Nicholas
  6. Happy New Year to all, may it be a healthy and prosperous one for all of you. As I cannot afford a real HMV (and would not have the space for it), I build small replicas of my favourite vehicles to have at least something to hold on to. My newest project is intended to be a Bedford MK tactical refueller as used by the RAF, but I have hit a brick wall. This seems to be one of most underphotographed vehicles of all time (the whole MK series also cries out for a decent book), there are about 5 (pretty small) photos of the original on the web, and tons of the JB/Airfix 1/76 kit - which
  7. Looking for roadworthy Bedford MW, prepared to do some restoration but engine, gear boxes, axles, running Need to be fully working, Woodwork and other minor restoration work prepared to do.
  8. Hi all, We just (this weekend) bought a Hillman Minx Saloon 1941 to restore and brought it from UK to Belgium. We would like it to be in original RAF-colors again ! While stripping the black paint (it was rebuild in 1948 into a cab) we found lettering on back doors. Still have to strip another part, but now I’m trying to do some research about RAF vehicle markings. Hard to find !!! The markings on the front right wing, was already made visible by the previous owners ... I have paint chips of the original RAF blue grey that was underneath the other paint layers, so the colo
