Still stealing other people's work Tango?

Showing the good work of other people with admiration is not stealing my friend…

Of course I had not seen that thread in any way … otherwise it would be very stupid from my part to publish mine … on the other hand … making such accusations usually ends up very bad in TMP … so let's leave these topic aside… and continue each other with our path…

WOW !!! Panzer Porn ! I love it ! thumbs up

I'm glad that Bovington keeps all those rare AFVs in good condition. Albeit many/most cannot move anymore, AFAIK. Or not very far ?

I hope all the AFVs the US had at the Patton Museum, Aberdeen Proving Grounds, etc., are as well maintained as those at Bovington?

I hope you got pictures of the Elephant as it has been packed up and shipped back to the States where it can from.

The collection at the Patton Museum has gone to Ft. Benning where a tiny dedicated staff tries to keep up with it. Their funding is not great but they have finally gotten most all of the collection under cover. It is generally not open to the public. Unfortunately, the Infantry Museum, which is big, fairly new and fabulous, overshadows the armor collection from which they are happy to pick and choose select pieces of armor for displays. Tragic.

Too bad it is not all open to the public, but maybe in the future. If the gov't gets it's Bleeped text together … If ever ! evil grin But at least most of it is undercover. I guess something similar happened to the AFVs from Aberdeen. Many may be in storage somewhere ?

Hi folks, these are my pics and the links are to my blog. And I'm honoured to be Tango'ed by Armand. In fact I'm glad he picked up on my posts, as his notice has generated more replies than any of my original posts!

@ Major Mike: yep, I got the Elefant. In fact the Elefant was the reason I went, as I've been making various 1/72 models of that fine beast. My modelling efforts can also be seen on my blog, e.g:


@ Legion 4: these Tigers are collected from various places. The Elefant is from Aberdeen (US, not Scotland!), and went back on the 30th Jan, hence my trip to Bovington.
