First step of second phase effectively set !
More than two years after the realisation of the framework, a new step was effectively set for the building of the replica tank. A lot has happenend besides this project and around tanks and Poelkapelle. In the meanwhile contacts were made, visits were done, an idea was formed how to go on, new people got involved and most of all money was made available by private sponsoring.
I'm proud to announce that we just bought and received the undercarriage of a 20 ton excavator on chains that have the same dimensions as the tank. In further months we will do other purchases so we can assemble the whole perhaps next winter to get the framework mobile on tracks on it's own.
Only facts that are accomplished do appear here. So it's not no addition is done, or you don't hear of it, the project is dead. Not at all, but this take it's time.
And perhaps already another" thank you" to Robert Vandaele of Vandaele Machinery in Oostrozebeke for sharing his knowledge !
