Anyone have any ideas where I can get one of these rare beasts? Or if you have one for sale; how much, so we can haggle?

Thanks. If it can be made out of wood and plastic I can do that with a good friend of mine. If I can build a Vicker Mk VIB in 1/6th I can make a 1 to 1 PIAT.

It is just that I would like to have the real thing to demo/Show at lectures.

I hope he'll excuse me for name-dropping but CB, who is a member of this forum has one (in great condition too). Perhaps he could tell you where he got his, and maybe post some nice piccies of it.

cheers

Hi,

There is a very nice original PIAT for sale over here, although it's not cheap, it's from Normandy and has been camouflaged with a Sand colour and splotches of dark green, I think he want 300o euros for it.

Steve
