Thanks Chris, determining the unit has suddenly become much easier now. Do you have the vehicle number and unit vignets? Kind regards, Pieter Koops

Re: Magazine bags and pouches Bren Carrier

Hello All, Thanks very much for sharing all information. My books cannot tell everything in such details as e.g. the three volumes by Mr. Nigel Watson that have unfortunately illuded me :-) I have already found out that trying to deal with British and Canadian Universal Carriers (UCs) at the same ti...

Magazine bags and pouches Bren Carrier

Hello, "In the back" the Bren carrying Universal Carriers stashed a number of leather cases for Bren Gun magazines. How many did they carry? On the website Mapleleafup I saw a small canvas pouch for two magazines stashed in a bracket to the left of the Bren Gun slot. I guess the two magazines were k...

Re: curved bracket(s) on shield 17 Pounder

Thanks Pete and Marcus. The only thing I can say about it is that there is a 17 pounder with these hoops at Hotel Hartenstein.

Kind regards,

25 Pounder with special benefits

Hello, After years of building, delays and others projects my 25 Pounder build comes to an end. To friends in my 1/6th Appgroup I showed Dave’s resin models of the leather cases that were to be mounted on the back of the shield. I asked them for advice how to credibly paint leather. I was told it is...

curved bracket(s) on shield 17 Pounder

Hello Everybody, can anyone tell me the purpose of the curved, wave like bracket(s) on top of or between the two plates of the shield of some 17 Pounder AT Guns? I can imagine it has to do with breaking up the profile for camouflage reasons but I cannot find any proof. Were there specific British an...

Re: Armortek A34 Comet......

Hello Willy,

Last week we were speaking about a swap of my unbuilt WW1 British Mark IV tank for your Comet. You were looking into it. Didn't hear from you again and now a friend warns me that you go on with the sale.

Regards,
