I'm not really sure just how much work will be done on the 223, or how long 'she'll' be indoors.

Tt is a good chance to get some excellent detail photos of this unique vehicle. I thought it would be of interest to some here.

Regards
Don

Wow!!

Thanks for the info and those photos.

Besides the 223 here, I have seen a UK 223 but it was only a shell. Not really sure if it was indeed a 223. I believe it was displayed at Beltring several years ago.

'Ours' is missing the turret, which is one of the ways to distinguish a 223, along with the overhead frame. I had assumed this is an antenna of sorts.

Thanks once again
Don

M8-The 83rd Reconnaissance is the predecessor of the 3/12 Cav.

Mark,

Good catch,

I doubt it, but we had an M8 in Budingen that sat at the wash rack for a while waiting to be cleaned up. wonder if it's the same.

That's sure a possiblity. It would probably have the 83 Recon bumper numbers.

Testing out my version of the "Joe D" camera Pole. Which after some tinkering seems to work fairly well.

High angle views / photos are now a 'snap'.

Good stuff Joe, thanks for the idea.

Got another convert to the group Smile ,

Between you and Trevor that makes three of us taking these type of pictures. With your access to Fort Knox, some of the rarities will now be better documented.

The revolution is slowly catching on. Viva the revolution !
