M10 Achilles tank destroyer

Recommended Posts

Last juli we rolled our m10 into our workshop too restore it.

after complete dissamble we send the hull into the sandblaster and after it we paint it.

the inside is almost done now,so we began 5 weeks ago too overhaul the gm 6046,everything in it is replaced by new stuff,

begin this week we fired it up and tested everything,because there where no heavy problems with it,we installed it today in the hull back.

Lovely Video, the M10 looks to be in rather good condition when you started, where did it spend it's later life?

The turret is already painted ,only the barrel must be fitted and then it can placed on the hull,but that is the last thing too do :D

So I take it that the turret is under protective covers until that time then? great stuff if its not breaking any official secrets where is the location and what is the background of the M10.

the engines are original with no modifications,the reason that we have one generator is that we not have decided too put on 2,because it is not neccesary too put on another one.

thx,but we need no generator,have still 3 here.when you want too do something,we need a driver,s hatch. (have a gamma goat engine here,with cooler e.d )

Hi,

 

I have asked a company in the UK that I have dealt with before to cast the two hatches off of my Achilles - they did not seem to think that this would be a problem. So if you are interested I will get a price. You can pay them direct (proves I haven't put a drink on for myself!) from past experience I would approximate it to be around £3000 + VAT for the pair.

 

If you don't have any joy getting driver's or passenger hatches let me know and I will pursue this and get a more accurate price.
