  1. Hi guys Had an interesting conversation this weekend about current tank values and would be really interested to get your take please. So, what would be your estimate of the value of the following tanks? Chieftain Centurion T-55 Leopard Sherman Cromwell T-34 Huge tanks Cheers Graham
  2. Anyone know the proper nomenclature fot the wee Jib/Crane, on the right, holding the old Engine in this IWM photo? Any info on it at all, manuals, drawings etc. REME fitters prepare to install a new engine into a Sherman tank at 8th Armoured Brigade workshops, 9 August 1944. © IWM (B 8892)
  3. As a follow on to the 'Sherman spotted on the A12' thread where I mentioned an M10 going the other way, this thread is about said M10 as the owner has asked me to post some pics and info. I first heard about the M10 many years ago but only knew it was in a childrens playground, somewhere in Yorkshire. I did not follow it up at the time as I had other things to think about... It cropped up in conversation again at Stoneleigh 2001 and I managed to get a location. Strangely enough, I was asked at the same show if I wanted to buy a 6046 Detroit twinset, the correct engine for the M10. I de

    Hi, does someone know the primary forum(s) in the UK where tank lovers do attend. I'm looking to establish new connections, however, it seems that I'm still lacking proper virtual places on the web where such people are meeting up.. If someone could share any thoughts - would be very helpful.
  5. I swapped my Saracan for this Engine and a SUMB back in the late 1990s. Eventually got it running and mounted in a trailer ... very impressive. This was only its 2nd run ... the first was just a few seconds in my garage !! Something went wrong...
  6. That dust was a photographers dream !! not so good for the vehicles or occupants !! Dramatic slow motion sequence at the end of this short clip. Sherman wa sounding great. Something went wrong...
  7. Found this photo, it came with several others, but i found it rather interesting. Any ideas would be appreciated. I have no ideas why no turrets are on these so if anyone know i would be interested to hear from you.
  8. Hey guys. We have ran in to a bit of a brick wall with our restoration. We are installing a hydraulic traverse system but we are missing the oil tank. From what my dad has told me it is a rather specific part with pressure release valves and such fitted to it. If anybody knows where we could get our hands on one of these we would love to hear from you! And as a bit of a personal project I am looking up information on the Gyro stab system. I am sure Adrian can help me with this as I am wondering if the M4A4 had the stab fitted and if so how complex the system is. I am fairly certain that th
  9. Hiya Its a long story but I was 'invited' to a location in Northern France to have a discussion with an eccentric french farmer about finding some parts for a project I have on. I have been asked not to diclose the location or contact details and I have to respect the chaps views. Some may know of this 'collection' already - but thought I would share the story and some pictures.. I was escorted by a 'fixer' in france to the owners location. When you arrive its a dismal sight with many wrecked and rotting post war vehicles just laying about. I was told about the collection and g
  10. Hi All, Although I am new to this forum I am not new to MVs having started the interest back in 1992 when I met a local farmer who owned a Sherman Grizzly and Diamond T. Luckly enough I got to watch him drive around, on and off the Diamond T transporter and on a couple of occasions I had a rumage around in the turret and got to sit in the drivers position.... I was only 13! In 94 my Dad took me to Normandy for the 50th which was a fantastic trip, unforgetable... I even got to say hello to Major Howard outside the Cafe at PB. Later brought and restored a 1966 Landy and a 1969 Lwt Landy, broug
