The restoration work on one of the biggest Second World War-era German tanks, the Tiger II, was shown to the media in a fortress museum Full-Reuenthal on Saturday. The restoration process has taken ten years, and is still not completed.
The museum keeps the ‘King Tiger’ tank on permanent loan from the Swiss army.
Restoration worker Bernd Kubiak stated that the restoration was originally planned to be completed in five years. However, due to the sheer scale of the project, the restoration workers quickly realised it would take much longer.
“We quickly deviated from that course and then said that it would take 10 years. But these ten years have lapsed and, as you can see, there is still a lot of work to do,” Kubiak explained.
