Hi everyone. I'm Tony. It seems I registered 5 years ago then hid! I have been fascinated by military vehicles, predominantly softskin, since I was a lad, but apart from models and kits, that's as far as it has ever gone. I'm a bit fickle though, as I'm also interested in steam railways, traction engines and boats, but apart from a couple of plastic cruisers that have come and gone, I don't have any of those either, other than models! I was offered a Humber Heavy Utility 'Box' for £100 as I recall, at a steam fair in Lancashire in the 70s. Oh how I wanted it, but 'er indoors would have none of it. I don't have 'er indoors now either! It's still one of my favourite vehicles, but I no longer have the space, health or money to contemplate owning a real one. Anyway, I have been lurking, and for any Humber enthusiasts, here's a strange bit of film from You Tube. I can't make up my mind whether it's a postwar civilian version or a hybrid, but those front hubs look quite unusual.
Hi, I'm based in Swansea, South Wales. About half way through restoration of my Humber Utility (Box). Trying to do as much of the work myself as I can, learning as I go. See my profile for photos on progress so far, will add more as I go. Thanks Chris
