Painting your military vehicle with incorrect markings will devalue it says Nigel Hay
Military Vehicle Market
As you read this, the War and Peace Renaissance at the Hop Farm will have come and gone and collectors will still be cleaning either the dust or the mud off their vehicles. (See the full report of the show on pages 6-11.)
Without a doubt it will have had a major effect on the trade side of our hobby whatever the weather. We are now seeing specialist restorers like BAIV in Holland taking large stands to proudly show off their restorations. This is the way to go, and what better chance to let people see the quality of the work? The whole dynamics of the restoration and rebuild sector has changed dramatically in recent years and there are now more armour restoration specialist than any other type of military vehicles.
