    Wow, the organizers expected 2000 euros minimum a piece, I bet they must be more than happy.

    Few more details on the Auction from CMV magazine; seems the Stallwood chap bought all 3 Stug carcasses, so that bodes well for a restoration. :D

    Most expensive Stug (remembering these are very wrecked) went for 185,000 Euros (£130k), lowest price 115,000 euros (£81k).
    Top price for a Comet was 25,000 Euros (£17.5k).
    For a Charioteer, 16,000 Euros (£11.2k).

    How the other half lives eh?
    Wonder if the Stugs are in Kevin Wheatcroft's yard already. ;)

    Cheers,
    Adam.

    :rofl:
    No mate, and if he were we'd have fallen out over me stealing bits by now.

    He is just down the road from me though, I should hang around his bins in case they accidentally throw out one of the 3 Kettenkrads...

    We had a little thread about the collection, few more links on there.
    He now claims to have about 80% of a King Tiger, a Jgdpzr IV has turned up in his yard and a Valentine Archer's been imported from the middle east. Got 2 panthers under restoration now as well, first one projected to be finished by maybe June next year if I remember right. And the thought of a restored Terrapin gets me more excited than it probably should. :bastid:

    Need a green with envy smiley.

    Cheers,
    Adam.

    Looks like 2 of these Stugs and a Charioteer have turned up in Kevin Wheatcroft's yard (surprise surprise).

    Oh yes, he's bought this S-boat too... :bastid:

    Wheatcroft Collection
    (Go to 'News' and 'Hi-res Galleries' for more on the Stugs; Stugg )

    Cheers,
