I believe it was the IS-3 that was leaking it's oil
yeah that could very well be. it was one of those huge monsters for sure.
As I stated: "nearly all", so not all of them. If I am not mistaken, the Pzkfw IV is also still complete.
But lately the are changing around a lot, the museum is having major changes for a least 2 years. The now will be focusing on the airplane hall.
I love the Pzkfw IV. It's my favorite tank. Glad to hear she's still complete.
yeah! What's the point of stripping them, anyway?
Preventing that someone might take the keys and drive home with it? :grin:
Wouldn't it not be great to see something like the Bovington Tankfest in Brussels?
Oh, but there is... although on a bit smaller scale and not in Brussels.
Here is a part of the 2005 line-up:
Let me guess, the military base of Leopoldsburg?
I should have known
Nope... not even close...
Okay, any hint where it is? Love to go over there
It is where I do my hobby...
The Central Depot of the Royal Army museum in the Fortress of Kapellen barracks near Antwerp.
Holds about 300 vehicles of which about 50 are fully or partially restored and running. Others are in all kinds of states, going from running but in need of restauration to nearly wrecked...
the "official" website from the depot: http://tankfreak.tripod.com/ (pop-ups!)
Great site, love the pics. No doubt hard work to get those tanks, jeeps and trucks working again but i bet the plessure when it is finished must be great.
I am Ruud from the Netherlands and live in a town called Zwijndrecht. There once was a museum here in Zwijndrecht. The Marshall museum, here are a few pictures I made (sorry for the bad quality of the pictures, the camera was not that good): http://members.chello.nl/r.hof3/Marshall1.htm
I collect scale models from tanks from World War II. I own about 30 pieces, have no more displayspace to store them. Most of the models are from CDC Armour and Forces of Valor.
I like to go to museums like The National War and Resistance Museum Overloon (Netherlands) (http://www.oorlogsmuseum-overloon.nl/nl/)
and the Army Museum (http://www.legermuseum.nl) in Delft (Netherlands)
and of course the Royal Museum of the Armed Forces and Military History Brussels (Belgium) (http://www.klm-mra.be/)
And one my hobbies is scubadiving (even in the cold water of the Netherlands!)
Dutch people are insane! :grin:
Welcome to the forum, Ruud. Hope you enjoy the place.
Here are some photos (if someone is interested):
another modeler in the forum!!!!!! :grin:
but you better post them in the proper section
I don't make them myself, i just collect die cast models.
I am Sean(Irish form of John and pronounced Shawn), from Houston, Texas. While I discovered this forum over 2 years ago and became the 188th person to join, I lost the site name and basically forgot about it for a good year until I was clearing out my email. LOL. So I am back, for better or worse.
My hobbies are fishing, hunting, and reading then digesting every history book I can get my hands on.
To all the newbies, welcom on board
Quillin stole my line.
However, I would like to add; please leave your sanity at the wardrobe :grin:
