Great effort all involved. :thumbsup: Appeared the Belgian CAD guy had been involved for 5 years. Yet the project apparently took 5 months. :?

I actually thought seeing it on the battlefield was quite a sight and I can see how the remembrance parade crowd could have turned in to the Guy Martin tank show which isn't quite right. A pretty tall order was pulled off amazingly well - top work :thumbsup:

Actually, the Council, Police and "H&S brigade" have received a lot of undeserved bad press here. They needed to operate under strict guidelines for public events, and were looking into how the tank could be accommodated within the Remembrance Parade. At no stage did they reject the application - however, the producers of the program decided to go for using the tank in France as an easier option.

Despite not getting to see it "live", it was a fantastic achievement by all concerned.
Well it seems strange that they managed to have one in London this weekend!

I'm looking forward to watching the programme tomorrow - Guy Martin is always worth watching. :thumbsup:

Great TV :thumbsup:

Made me aware of what an amazing job was done by the original builders in the First World War - incredible :o

Watched this on catch up earlier in the week. It was equally inpressive and humbling watching what the build team achieved as well as seeing what the original tank crews and all the military involved in The Great War experienced

The German fella should take a lot of credit - his CAD work and research was the foundation.

I never appreciated the scale of them. They are huge!
