Dig this bit of video.
I didn't bother to research the back story, but it's amazing to me that the guy got the thing running or even bothered to do it at all. Japanese tanks were piles of junk suited only for getting their crews killed. Still, it's a wonderful bit of living history. It would have been fun to work on that project.
Elsewhwere, there's a group restoring a German Junkers Ju-88 bomber. Way cool.
