Default Progress of the Hoebig rebuild/restorations?

Can anyone offer insight on the second Hoebig Tiger I? Wheatcrofts King Tiger? Additional Panthers? All supposedly being rebuilt/restored at the Hoebig facilities. I'm personally "dying" too see more pictures of this marvel of armor restoration.

The two Tigers, the most complete one has been in the Munster museum for a while.
I do not find any information about the progress.

Default Info please..

"I'm personally "dying" too see more pictures"...my exact thoughts
You would have thought that in this modern age of the Internet, global exchange of information to likeminded people..what am I saying
I just can't get away from the fact, some of these "collectors" just do not want to part with information.
Call me a cynic .. you'll see pictures when they want to show off what they have..and not before, what's the chance the average joe public will be able to visit and see the said BBT (big boys toy)
Good luck r_hufschied

Default Panther

Hello if you go on the Australian armour and artillery facebook site you will see some photos of the Panther restoration being done by Axis track services ( Bruce Crompton and his team ) fantastic job being done to restore it to fully operational condition regards Daryl

Forgot to mention the team in museum team in Australia have restored a Hummel to a static display and are in the process of rebuilding a panzer IV G from blown up parts

Hoebigs Tiger is no longer in Munster. It was sold last year. The museum replaced it with a fibreglass replica with a different turret number (321 as opposed to 231), but painted the exact colors....

Most people would never know the difference.

They are building 2 steel Tiger replicas at this time.
