Question to Bob Smart about the "Skeleton Tank"
The AFV ASSOCIATION was formed in 1964 to support the thoughts and research of all those interested in Armored Fighting Vehicles and related topics, such as AFV drawings. The emphasis has always been on sharing information and communicating with other members of similar interests; e.g. German armor, Japanese AFVs, or whatever.

Bob,

I am directing this question to you with hopes that you may know someone that can answer it. When APG restored the Skeleton Tank did anyone take pictures to document the inside of the armored box (cab), rear gear box or the running gear components covered by the wood panels?

For those that don't know about the "Skeleton Tank" below is a link to the Landships website which documents the vehicle's history.

The American "Skeleton Tank"


Ask and you shall receive... Although these pics are post-restoration.

Gears


Engine


Driveshaft


Radiator

Sorry I didn't see this when you first posted it.

There are some 'before during after' photos of various vehicles that have been through the refurb program. I have some at home and will try to look at them tonight and see what there is on teh Skeleton tank. If I don't have any the folks at Aberdeen may have some more.

That restoration was a particularly difficult one because of the amount of wood work required. The trackways on that vehicle are almost all wood. and most of the original wood was rotten.

More images of it Guys...

I have this insane idea to make a full-scale replica one day.... in the meantime I going to have a go at a working 1/24 version after my current project is finished.

Would this be the tank you are talking about? I just stumbled across this picture while "Googling".

Yes, that would definately be a "before" picture. Here's "after."
