Hi Boys,

take a gold star FFRMAN , you are correct there were no vehicles in either photo.   :)

R704, thank you  :), no I grabbed them thru Platapus outdoors.  I`m not wrapped with the M60 so will think about chasing up the QLD bloke in future. 

Cheers,

Mick

Hi Boys,

Cheers Pete, appreciate it.

Mick, how would Corowa be with a troop of LRPV's and a platoon of gun buggies milling around amongst some very nice 2A's, 3's, and 110's ? Not to mention the fwd control wagons .

Anthony aiming to be there and I as well, with the Ambulance and survey. It will look nice to have a convoy of ex aussie l/r around corowa in 2018.

There are more available.
But how deep are your pockets and how much of a wreck would you be prepared to rescue?

Well done Mick  ;) Would you need NSW paperwork to display over there (in Corowa)? The LRDG Jeep had to have their twin replica Lewis MGs covered and they were only pipe and wood!

Looks like we're all striving to get ours finished to show off in '18. Mine'll be kitted out with a radio, antenna etc in a few weeks and with a working Black Out circuit too  :)

Looking forward to see your progress Daryl , at least you can display your radio gear.  Your Series 3 should look pretty flash when finished, it wasn't looking to bad on Platapus 17.

Good luck with your project

Don't forget your road train / long vehicle signs Scott 😊

You'd be heading up pretty early to be there for the parade wouldn't you mate ? 😊

What is the record for No 5 trailers behind a Series Land Rover?

Whatever it is, we should aim to beat it in 2018...

Actually I did try but less than a trailer length. The jack knife got worse the further back in the train.
