    Default Flakpanzer Restoration in Canada

    I'm part of a group of guys restoring a Flakpanzer located at CFB Borden in Canada, and have been filming videos as it comes along. If you guys are interested, you can check out the playlist here:

    The turret of the vehicle has been removed and the hull itself is currently in the process of being stripped.

    You can also check out the Facebook page for the group here: https://www.facebook.com/FlakpanzerRestorationProject/

    My video group and I will be making more videos of the restoration as it comes along so feel free to subscribe to the channel or follow the Facebook page to keep getting updates.

    The Flakpanzer IV "Wirbelwind" (Whirlwind in English) was a German self-propelled anti-aircraft gun based on the Panzer IV tank. It was developed in 1944 as a successor to the earlier M÷belwagen self-propelled anti-aircraft gun. 4 x 20mm guns.

    No problem, just trying to get the news out there that the vehicle's being restored.

    Keep up the posting, I hope they can find a 2-cm Flakvierling 38 to compete the tank.

    Great project.

    Will do, there has indeed been a 2-cm Flakvierling sourced. The relevant information is in this video: https://youtu.be/Ykkt6yBw12U

    If anyone wants, I can regularly post new videos up here although subscribing to the youtube channel or Facebook page are also options.

    Please keep posting. It's a very interesting project.

    You should also tell Sherman Williams that they should market that Panzer paint!
