Merddin's New Tanks -2003

This illustrated tale was originally written as it happened over the Christmas period of 2003 to provide a blow by blow account for those not with us in Wales.

The plan is to reshow it here for awhile and then it will move to be part of the full story of the rebuild

With the last tank done we managed a team photo of those still left at BL. A lot more people helped doing a day here and there. There was one more day but it mainly consisted of an epic tidy up.

This is some of the team that spent their Christmas and new year building four double engine tanks. I am bound to have missed someone  from the credits in which case I apologise.
