    Anybody feeling flush?
    Fancy a restorable Crocodile?
    No sign of a trailer though, I imagine they're not exactly thick on the ground.

    I have a new 'low' for that thread; never having £25k when I really need it...:mellow:

    Cheers,
    Adam.

    I'II pop round on Monday morning to buy it, when I win the Lottery on Saturday. Fat chance! Besides her in doors would fall of her perch if I ever thought of it. Why not made-do with an Airfix?

    Nice one - if it had a trailer I would have made an immediate offer...:D

    Very rare beast indeed!

    Priest, M10, Stuart, several halftracks & a dingo that seems to be steadily dropping in price on the Main page (Go >'Vehicle park'>'Armour & Tracked'). It must be the season for it...a Saladin would be nice..

    He does say he'll do an exchange for the Churchill, wonder if he could use a diesel Golf?

    Would the Family Tax Credits and Family Allowance do?
    Feed and clothe the kids, there's a tank to be bought.
    Is it exempt from Road Tax?

    Just went back there to see if there's a price for that Centurion mocked up as a WW1 tank (£25k, One that was at beltring, quite a good job) only to find there's most of a Cromwell up for sale now... Interesting that the vendor is 'Russiantruck.com', who I believe are the same chaps who had that Hind on Ebay.

    Looks like somebody bought the Cromwell:
    Cromwell_Recovery.
    Hard to tell from the video where it ended up.

    Russian Trucks bloke has found a Panther too:

    WW2 Panzerkampfwagen V 'Panther'
    Very very rare and for the serious collector only. Unit is complete with turret. Located remote and deep in former Russian state but not in E.U. Film and full details to be added to website in the next few days.
    Russian Trucks.

    All from Milweb, quite a few interesting WW2 vehicles on there at the moment.

    Wonder if the cromwell is the same hull that Bob Fleming's selling:

    Military Vehicles from Bob FlemingCromwell tank hull - will exchange for Cromwell turret & gun
    The implication would be that he has more than one, or knows a customer who needs the turret? Perhaps bodes well for some more rolling British Armour at some point in the future.

    Hi Von Poop,
    The leopard mk1 is in RAF Cosford`s Coldwar museum.

    What Leopard mate?
    Don't think we've mentioned it here?
    Though it looks sweet at Cosford doesn't it, I like the top down view from that balcony where all the AFV's look like tiny toys, until you get up close to 'em...

    Cheers,
    Adam

    I notice that the Scammell's called 'Snow White' - it couldn't be the same one in the IWM pix that Owen posted a few weeks ago --- could it?

    According to the reports at the time that this T34 was recovered, it was in such good condition it will be fully restored to running condition.

    It was a captured tank and bears the German cross on the front plate.

    Am I right in thinking that a German commanders cupola from a Mk 3 or 4 was later fitted?

    Anyone for Honey?
    16 Stuarts imported from Brazil.
    5XM3s, 11Xm3a1s:
    M3A1 Stuart tanks
    Bodes well for a Beltring treat, they don't look in too bad condition at all.

    The photos suggest some of them are in very good nick: intact wiring looms and in some cases, optics. How much then?

    Who know's, last time I looked Stuarts in reasonable running order were c.£25k, always seemed oddly cheap to me. Though with that Kettenkrad recently going for c.£70k things seem to still be pretty warm in the more 'full on' MV market.

    Phone 'em up H... they might do HP:
    R.R. Motor Services
    You'd look good in a Stuart ;).



    Just read that the Panther wreck above (post #8) went for c.£300,000!
