Re: Martin's Elefant

Hi Adrian, Derek and Bob,
many thanks for your kind words. Now it is time to make the Zimmerit onto the walls.

Re: Martin's Elefant

Here are some more photos of the side wall with all welding seams on the holders.
The angles on the front side got 2 slots for 2 pins, they are soldered in to give more strongness to the angle after gluing into the holes for the pins - seen on the last 3 photos.
