The fifth Panther restoration session has just ended. We warmly thank Yvan, Christophe, Lætitia and José.
The start of the restoration of this FT started in March 2007. Many thanks to Patrick for the photos!
Our volunteers started the work in April 2007.
Another busy week for our team of volunteers. Manufacture of parts such as fenders and exhaust guards, right tool support, overhaul of track supports and welds of many parts.
Back with our loyal team of volunteers on the Panther des Invalides. The schedule for this week was to sand the body before painting to then be able to reassemble the running gear. Again a big thank you to Francis, Yvan, Christophe, José and Lætitia. Photos of the week:
For the first time since 1940, the FCM 36 is driving with its 90-year-old tank commander, Mr. Steinbach.
