May 4th and 5th we spent killing Ami’s in an urban setting. A totally vacant old Air Force Base. It was spooky. This was the first event to be held at George. If you missed it, you missed a very unique experience. Watch the video
George AFB Living History Video. Hunting Sherman and Stuart.
We had a blast and the drive was easier than Camp Roberts. The bad news is that I discovered that the trailer is too long for California. So its a problem to be solved. Gotta get a shorter trailer.
March 2nd, 2013 assembly began on the PzKpfw IV ausf H. project. The genesis of the perfection, the masterpiece.
Ive been rounding up material and parts for about 4 years and in serious planning and drawing for the last 6 months. The urge to build a second panzer began days after the first one was complete enough to start playing with. After a lot of prep, the actual sparks began March 2, exactly 10 years behind the beginning of the Panzer III.
We hope to have it built in two years where it took us 6 years to build the Panzer III. We are smarter, and have a better grip on how to approach things. I will have a lot more cutting done by CNC plasma and water jet. That alone will cut a huge amount of time out of the curve.
Stay tuned. We are documenting this build in a very thorough way. Photos, video and we will be blogging the progress, problems and pain.
For about a year we have had a place holder for a page at Panzerfabrik.org. With the help of Flexiss we are kicking off our new shiny website/blog. Plans are to keep expanding it and developing a rich entertaining website.
We also hope to effectively advertise our services to those who could benefit by engaging Panzerfabrik for their production.
With any luck we will use this website to push up RSS feeds to twitter, facebook, linkedin etc…
