I found odd tank blueprints from my grandmothers fathers cellar. It was like a hidden archive but I don't know how I could sent these here. There is a year 1956 at the bottom of one of these blueprints. And they arent really blueprints as he prob did not afford on those. But how do I send a picture?

You could also contact some historical society or archive, or the tank museum, perhaps.

Are you certain that they are Finnish? They might have been something your grandfather worked on but never actually Finnish'd :medal:

Take a picture with the phone or something and upload to an image hosting site and link here. If it is something of value there is probably a company somewhere that you can contact that will scan them for you, or some historical faculty like a museum or something that will help you.

'Imgur' is a good site to link pictures...and it's free. (Photobucket charges these days)

Sounds about right except that underpowered engine.
