Hi

Now this would be a centre point in your garden or shed, if you have a hangar!

I have planning permission (ie approval from erindoors) to have an old aircraft outside, and a Meteor or Hunter would suit me fine, but I'm not quite sure if it'd fit, and the costs for dis-assembling, moving and re-assembling might be an issue too Shocked

There was quite a good looking Bedford MJ 4x4 lorry there for three grand, usually ex military stuff has done ridiculously low mileage too.
I particularly like the phrase 'Can be supplied as a mobile workshop'. That opens up quite a few interesting possibilities!

Hi

I think all of these sites are connected, as that is where I was, looking at cars, when I found a site for clothing surplus, then the aircraft linked above.

Rick, I say go for it, if you have permission, I know someone with a huge flatbed LGV! hehe

Cheers

something the size of a Jet Provost would fit in easier I think, although I'd much prefer a Hunter or Meteor. I think this all goes back to when as a kid I'd go an play in a DH Vampire that was sat in a farmyard Smile

Many years ago when they were first setting up the Museum of Flight at East Fortune I got roped in to help fit the the wings on their Vampire. This was a great job because I also got to play with their other exhibits. A seat in the Messerschmitt Comet and also their Spitfire. In the latter I sat fiddling with the controls when suddenly I felt myself drop several inches. Shocked Shocked Oh no! Had I managed to collapse the undercarriage? Fortunately no.
The lever I had released was the seat height adjustment Surprised Happy days!

Hi

If you get a green godess, get a yellow one, that came from northern ireland, full riot gear etc, a bit different, never seen a yellow one at a show!

Buy direct to save some cash! ( do you have to add vat on the ebay one?)

Cheers
