i do however , managed to get a hold of a pig canvas , fancy rebuilding the lockers on the sides and wings ,and wanting to put hatches back on the pig thought doing the mk1 side hatches rolling back the pig to older times , what do you think ?

Jamie it is a lot of hard work. Unless you can get original door hatches & the visors it won't look right. I have seen a number of retro conversions over the years, all of them have required much effort & some have been carried out with a high degree of skill far beyond my metal working efforts. But I'm afraid I have never seen one that looked totally convincing.

IMG_9430.jpgclive due to the fact that all of the front hatches have been cut off , not by me its how i got it , i will be starting from scratch , the only problem would be the prisms on the front hatches , as the side ones that i have seen look like flat plate with a semi circle cut out for viewing , would the be an accurate representation ?

That's the easy bit. The real give away is when the hatch is opened.

People seem not to don't bother with the splash guard edging (bullets not rain!) & the rimmed enclosure for the rotating aperture closure as this is a casting & difficult fake. Then there is the catch & hatch lever arm to consider.

I think the Mk 1 front scopes are available Jamie as a friend of mine bought some a little while ago ! I'll ask him where from and let you know ! :-D

 

Yes they often turn up. No.17 Mk 1 or Mk 3

 

I always wonder whatever happened to the Mk 2? :-D
