Militracks 2019

Post by Armortek » Wed May 08, 2019 5:35 pm

Armortek will be at Militracks at the Overloon Museum in Holland on the 18th and 19th May with a couple of our models.

Militracks is the largest gathering of running German WWII armour in the world and judging by past YouTube videos it should be a great event.

If you are going, stop by and say hi.

Boss asked us today to plan on being required to work on the 18th. What time would I need to be there by on the 19th to see you before you pack up ?

Also I have attended Militracks a couple of times and can recommend it. Overloon war museum where it is held SHOULD not be missed out.
The running vehicles at Militracks are generally half-tracks and motor-cycle half-tracks, with the occasional StuG.
Holland does not allow re-enactors in authentic uniforms so you may see a FAMO completey filled with kids or adults in jeans and t-shirts.
I would suggest that if you only come over purely for Militracks, then you would go away disappointed.
Plan in a day for the Overloon Museum then go up the Market-Garden route going over the bridges that were crossed, then at Arnhem , visit the Airborne Museum Hartenstein at Oosterbeek. Fantastic, when my father and I visited it, we had to stop at the next cafe for coffees and chill-time to process the experience before I could drive us home.

I whish you all a sage trip, good time, lots of fun and nice weather. Unfortunately I am unable to make it this year, as I'm still swaeting under the Egyptien sun (38°) while scuba diving. Cheers Peter
Lord, give me strength to change the things I am able to change.... and patience to endure the things I can not change :-)

Thanks for fantastic pictures. Nashorn! Does it run? It does look like an awesome show. I love all the videos people post from there. Glad to see tanks get added to the mix. The Panther A is from Saumur with a new paint job? It looks better than before - but it could be a different machine as well. I think they have several.

Glad to see the Armortek booth packed! That is great turn out.
Best regards,
Bob
