  1. I always suspected that SCC.16 and the Far East 207 were the same, now confirmed. Directorate Special Weapons and Vehicles Liaison Letter No 26. See:
  2. The pics you supplied does not seem to match the description, as the 25 Pdr mounted would have a 360 deg ability to traverse, the pictures show a fixed type of turret.
  3. If I look at the suspension this seems to be a A10 Cruiser tank mod! Very interesting all the same! Thanks very much for the pictures!
  4. Came across a Tech report (1944) stating that a Crusader had been mounted with a 25 Pdr and handed to the School of Art for trails. Does anyone have more details of this, drawings, pictures, info, etc would be much appreciated. Regards William
  5. British Engineering Standard Association (B.E.S.A.) 2D. 103, March 1922 “Air Ministry Nitro Dope Coverings and Identification Colours” In principle all the major paint formulations (PC 10 etc.) should be in there as well as the pigmentation. If possible do you have a copy of this standard or do you know where I could get a copy for research purposes? A scan would be great - send to mechinf(at)netactive.co.za
  6. Jamie The BCC was used for material colours ie: uniforms and also other horticultural uses. Thus one finds colour cards of military badges and uniforms quoted in the BCC colours for when it was necessary to produce the badge or uniform the correct shade of any particular colour could be used by the material manufactures. I am looking for a copy of this document as it refers back to paint colours and their names as well.
  7. I seem to recall: a couple of years ago a video was doing the rounds about the painting of trucks in Caunter camouflage in one of the RASC workshops in Egypt. Would appreciate a copy or the URL of that particular video. Can anyone help? Thanks William mechinf(at)netactive.co.za
  8. Are there indexes available for AFV Modeller, MMI, MIM, etc. Links or documents would be appreciated.
  9. How do you Brits research your own colours if no one seems knows anything about this subject, just wondering?
  10. Not a great fan of this technique, remembering that the salt attracts the moisture in the paint you get a buildup of paint around the salt crystal, when the crystal is removed you have a lump of paint with a fairly deep impression where the crystal was sitting. So your paint finish becomes quite irregular and bumpy. If you can live with this its fine. Remember to seal the finish as every time it rains or a lot of moisture is in the air the dissolved salt in the paint will attract it and may ruin you finish.
  11. Can anyone help me with a scan or pdf of this book, I need it for my own research purposes wrt military heraldry. Any of the 1930's, 1950's or later versions will help. My email is mechinf(at)netactive.co.za Thanks William
  12. Can anyone help me with a scan or pdf of this book, I need it for my own research purposes wrt military heraldry. Any of the 1934, 54 or later versions will help. My email is mechinf(at)netactive.co.za Thanks William
  13. There were 57 colours in BS 381 published in 1930 and exactly the same in BS 381C in October 1931. I am now trying to pin down exactly when the next eight colours (listed below) were added. Do you by any chance have any information about the dates of the amendments for each of these? I think they were all added before 1939 except 68 Traffic Yellow but the clues about that colour are not clear. 33 RAF Blue Grey 67 Traffic Green 68 Traffic Yellow 69 Traffic Blue 70 Traffic Red 71 Middle Graphite 72 Dark Graphite 73 Gulf Red Thank you in anticipation.
