When I can pin Nigel down, there will hopefully be a write up of his truck on here too.
Scammell Explorer History
(Shamelessly cribbed from www.rememuseum.org.uk)
During the early development of the Scammell Pioneer in the 1920s and 1930s, a few six wheel drive versions were produced and others were made experimentally during World War 2. The limitations on the Pioneer’s cross country mobility were mainly to do with traction, if the four driving wheels were unable to grip on soft ground. So, soon after the War ended, experiments began with a 6 x 6 recovery vehicle. The outcome was the Explorer which bore a strong resemblance to its predecessor. Read More
just back from Kirton Lindsey, KORC site and a mixed bag of results for Shrek the Rangie after the major refit that it has been through.
On the positive side the conversion to the QT services Weekender Kit front and back has worked well, and the truck is articulating really well and I am very pleased with the spacers that Chris gave me, Thanks.
On the negative side the front shock turrets tore off on both sides of the new kit, and on inspection are poorly welded with little penetration into the plate from the loop. In fairness to QT and White Peak, this is a pre production turret, which was given to me by Andy Daws with that proviso.
So Uncle Chris to the rescue again I think, and the front shock turret mounts are going to be arc welded back into place for me.
There is some video below of shrek articulating on the course. This is with one front shock mount on, as the other had already sheared by this point.
Chris’s buggy and an SJ (sorry I don’t know who it is, add the details in the comment form and I’ll update the post)
Edit: The unknown SJ under the enormous chevy tidal wave is Ako’s….
How did it keep on running? LOL!
