Ha-Go restoration
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.

you can see that the barrel is damaged and the crack on the turret still appears on the repainted tank.

Type 95 Ha-Go – Australian War Memorial, Canberra (Australia) is being restored

The aim of the conservation treatment is to treat extensive corrosion damage, free up corroded components, source original components or replicate missing components such as both tracks, and return the tank to its ‘as captured’ but non-operational service appearance.


www.awm.gov.au/blog/ca...servation/

History:

The tank was captured in a pivotal action at Milne Bay in New Guinea in September 1942 after the defeat of the Japanese landing force. It had been involved in actions with Australian infantry of the 61st and 2/10th Batallions, and was stopped by SX1603 Jack O’Brien with a Boyes anti-tank rifle on 28 August 1942. O’Brien was wounded and awarded a DCM for this and other actions around that time. The tank was brought to Australia, dismantled, examined and partially reassembled by the Army. It was damaged by mine testing, then languished in the weather outside in a scrap yard for many years, and was then acquired by a private collector in the 1970?s. The tank was repainted at that time and put into a diorama type display. No other conservation work was done other than the loose replacement of a non original track on one side of the tank. The Australian War Memorial acquired the tank in 2005 following the dispersal of this private collection.

It just struck me.

The allies spent the better part of five years destroying every axis tank.

These days its all about restoring the tanks instead Smile
