A belated Happy New Year to all. 2019 will be an important year for the BMPG as we look to finding a permanent home for our LCP and T86 radar.
Last Saturday saw work focused on completing the preparation of the T86 equipment drawers for re painting as in the accompanying photo. The first job will be to treat any corrosion on the casing as it’s steel; the drawers themselves are alloy.
To properly restore the rear wall of the T86 cabin both Ward Leonard DC generators have to be removed and last Saturday saw the first set removed.
The accompanying photos show the removal of the Ward Leonard and the work now needed to restore it externally as well as its mounting frame and shelf. Note the condition of anti-vibration mounts!
