Mecano Challenge s06e11
Titre original : Tanks
For the spectacular, show-stopping series final, our bodgers have been asked to build a couple of spud-shooting battle tanks. Get ready for some serious target practice.
James Ellis captains this Royal Navy team, with Adrian Eason-Bassett and Jason 'JJ' Swift standing firmly by his side. This three-man crew will ship out of HMS Sultan, Gosport and set sail to our sea of scrap.
This military team has made it through to the series final but can they make the grade and graduate to our grand final next week?
Army Warrant Officer Paul Ramsey joins forces with our navy boys for the series final. As a Royal Engineer, his job is to keep the British army's tanks rolling. But can his expertise help to steer our Destroyers to victory?
Ross Lindsay is an estate agent who works for Townends. Craig Smith and Scott House are the company's financial advisors. They are a confident team, great negotiators and have promised to play fairly.
Hot Property might be as safe as houses but can they win the series final and restore the reputation of estate-agent kind across the globe?
Ray 'Mudge' Smith joins our estate agents for this all important challenge. He has restored about 50 tanks and other military vehicles (mostly rare British and American vehicles from WW2) since 1991. Mudge currently owns and organises War and Peace, the largest private vehicle show in the world. With his help, Hot Property are in with more than a fighting chance of reaching the grand final.
David Ansell is the expert for the series final. As a Lieutenant Colonel with the Army's own engineering team, the Royal Electrical and Mechanical Engineers (REME), he is used to carrying out tank repairs at a moment's notice.
The British Army uses nearly four hundred Challenger tanks around the world. REME work alongside combat units to recover and repair equipment. This is the sharp end, where repairs are often carried out without the proper spares. Who could be better suited to judge this madcap Scrapheap challenge?
