    USAF Thiokol 601

    All of my Thiokols (Imp, Sprytes, 601s, 4T10) have aluminum backers (I will verify that in the next few days), so I'm pretty sure they were standard. My 601 is the most 'all original' machine I have.

    USAF Thiokol 601

    S-250 Shelter / Ham Shack Conversion

    My shelters (AN/TSQ-154A, AN/TRC-190A, AN/TRC-191A) all have the ladders mounted as seen above, but I store them inside when being hauled and when left unattended in a public access area.

Going for completely 24VDC solar and battery power. The batteries are being built from 18650 Li-Ion cells...

    Cooking on the H45 Heater

    Not about cooking... I have two of these H-45 heaters now and have been looking for a solid fuel conversion kit (or simply a grate). I have found one retailer that includes a beautiful adapter ring and grate with the heater, but will not sell them separately! Makes no sense (and no dollars for...

    Old Military vehicle locomotion trials

    Not this, since in general wheels are for weenies, although this is an exceptional set of wheels, but maybe one of the Rolligons in Boggies collection.

    Old Military vehicle locomotion trials

    The land train north of Fairbanks is still there as of last month, and it looks like the owner runs a little tourist gold panning operation on the property during the summer. I should have stopped to ask what his plans for it are, but work gives me little time for roadside chats. The trailer...

    What are these?

    Definitely the parts to the lower half of the radiator guard/grill. Will post pictures of mine in-place shortly. Here ya go... Looks like if you have a winch, then this lower grill is not used/installed.
