Got to say I didn't notice. One of the people I chat with on the train in the mornings knows the vendor. I'll see if I can find out.

Our event this year coincided with the White Muster at Kyabram. Steve Dietmann from Sydney organised to take the White Half Track belonging to Bill Bates of Victoria to this event on Sunday 17th March. Take a look at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3Cv_Z...-N70gAmy17fSAw

Went up to Corowa on Saturday for the day. It was good to catch up wit a few familiar faces and meet new ones.
I was chastised for not bringing a military vehicle but in my defence I did bring a civvy trailer that had two rims from a military vehicle and the trailer was painted in genuine army olive drab paint.

The photo's I took at Corowa.

It was a top day and worth the sprint up the freeway.
This tank is a celebrity from the TV miniseries "The Pacific".

Anyone notice the irregularities???

I like the workshops, were they many there?

The mixer looked different too. was this something a workshop would have towed?

Hi Juddy

The concrete mixers would have been allocated to RAE units and most likely towed by whatever was available, likely GS and often they would have been loaded as cargo onto the back of trucks.

There were a couple of workshops, but a lot more workshop trailers than there were the vehicles.  Even Easo brought his FFC* workshop trailer behind the 130.

Isn't it an M3A5 Grant II hull, which had the detroit 6-71 diesel standard.

The turret is fibreglass.
