1:6 scale Battlefield area in Denmark

Post by Steen Vøler » Thu Oct 11, 2018 7:04 am

hi all

We got a 2000 m2 area at www.panzermuseumeast.dk that we will prepare as a battlefield area to be opened spring 2019.

Cutting down trees are the first step

More to come as we build the battle field.

We are planning to invite for a european battle weekend in 2019 - if you are interessed you can reply to this post
cheers

Gee, that was dense! Looks like those 2000 m2 means about 2000 trees! :shock:

Anyway, I am interested in coming down for the event. :D

Now we have a off-load setup for the 1:6 scale tanks directly on the Battlefield

The 1:1 scale tracks are welded and forms a shape where we can use it for both "presentation scene" for the armortek tanks, as well as a obstacle and it makes it easy to drive our cars to the scene and drive out directly from the trunk to the battlefield without the need for ramps. This ofcourse also when we have to drive the tanks back into our cars

More pictures will follow as we build :-) Its a bit cold now..... so not much to share

A fantastic start to your battlefield there! Look forward to some more pictures. So much better than running around on a flat field.

Hi all
We had a build saturday (again :D ) and managed to make out outdoor dining- and work table

We also have our off-load area in place, where we can reverse drive the cars to the track bridge and just drive the tanks directly into battle

Bridge was repaired with new wood driving surface

More trees was cut down

Space for the club house was made

Bonfire place added

The blue white wagon is our club house - it will be cammo painted with logos

Various roadsigns was added and a lot of digging..... We are not finished yet - buildings, roads, lights etc will be made during the spring/summer

Hi guys

we went to our battlefield Saturday and worked our hands off :D

We did cut down additional 10 trees
Digged 100 meters power cable into the ground so that we have power in the club house as well as a charge parking area at the tree fence
Painted the club house - used 10 liters paint
Sprayed some cammo
Moved 1.5 ton topsoil to the brigde for a up/down ramp
Cleaned the clubhouse internally and made a diningtable
Put up some cammo netting at our outdoor camping fire/barbecue area
Set up the Armortek Banner on the clubhouse - and oh boy - IT LOOKS AWESOME - Thanks Monigue and Kian

This years first battle day will be 16. march - pictures will follow

Hi Kian
The museum opens for the season mid april, so I will post pictures then :-)

The meeting tomorrow is only "internal".

We now managed to get power to the club house - took a long time digging the power cable into to ground - we had 100 meters to dig, but now its there and we have power.

Tomorrow we will install a charging point on the backside of the fence so the large scale tanks can be charged on the battlefield directly.

and oh yes - totally forgot the most important thing - the Weber Barbecue is also in place so that we do not suffer eny hunger while playing with the tanks :-)


More pictures will follow as we work with the terrain, build houses etc ets.

we had a fun day at the battlefield - rain first started at 1600 so we had plenty of time to enjoy the first2019 day out with our panzers

Click on the pictures to watch full size pictures - and yes - we did not miss the barbecue either aas you can see :D

panzermuseumeast.dk will open for the season 18th of april, where we will be there also driving our tanks.
