Post subject: Kevin Wheatcroft Panther

Hi folks,

Does anyone know the current status of Kevin Wheatcroft's panther? I was wondering if it was going to make a debut appearance at War and Peace, or maybe at Tankfest. I would appreciate any information.


Sincerely,
Richard Isner

Richard,

I am going to see Kevin on Friday so I will let you know.

Last time we spoke he told me that the tracks were on (new made!) and that they were doing internal fittings before fitting the gearbox (beautifully rebuilt).

Engines are not rebuilt yet (he is doing several at the same time, although major works are under way.

I would not expect to see it running until War & Peace 2007.

I think he is working on the Tiger for Aberdeen also. Can you check on it?

David,

Read the "how to" guide at the top of the first page of the forum.

It's fantastic to have an inside source at the Wheatcroft facility. His restorations are by far the most interesting happening at the moment as he and his team are working on not just one Panther but on three!

Cheers,
Rik

Rik,

I just tried to use the "add an attachement" in the posting control section when you reply.

But anyway, I have open a photobuckt account now.

The picture was taken yesterday, those are brand new tracks, Kevin has had moulds made to make tracks and also tyres (tires).
