    hmm re looking at the drawing. the background is actually a photo by the looks of the dark aluminium window frame.

    I think it is Marco, but the one in the first pic that Alex posted, it really looks like a photo superimposed on another Shocked Suspect

    Austin Utility "Tilly" another new exhibit at the museum

    Post  Mario Brincat on Sat Apr 20, 2013 12:18 am



    for those of you unaware of what is going on at the Malta Aviation Museum, we recently acquired (bought at a ridiculous price)(akkwistajna) an Austin Utility more commonly known as the 'Tilly' and a Bedford QL Airfield Refueling lorry (ex Mr Bonello of Bonello Petrol Station at St Andrew's Road. He passed away recently and his heirs accomplished his wish to donate the QL to the MAMF and the right of first refusal on the Tilly. needless to say, we accepted and now both war veterans reside along all the other exhibits in hangar 1.

    excellent aquisitions especially the refueller which is quite rare. theres a beautifuly restored refueller at cosford r.a.f. museum west midlands if you all remember well. i would also suggest a morris minor van still available but slowly dissapearing

    Prosit Mario and also the hangar is home to the massive 88 aswell hux?

    That Tilly is interesting are the green colours at the back and the 'rainbow' like code based on an original, is it replicating a locally based vehicle? We have the tendency to credit that every local vehicle was rubble walled camoed, but I think not everything got that ...
