Movie: IHC Halftrack M5 Personnel carrier (Krystyna) Restoration

We made a movie of our IHC Halftrack M5 Restoration (Krystyna). The complete restoration took more than 2500 hours where every part was taken apart and restored. In 2009 we completed the Halftrack to participate on D-day and went to various events until in 2014 we decided to finish all last details for 70 years remembrance of Operation Market Garden.

Language is in Dutch. Movie is divided in 5 parts, click below to play all.
