Well I managed to find a computer to do a little update on where I#m at here in Germany. Managed to get to the PanzerMuseum in Munster on Saturday. A friend I'm staying with was kind enough to drive me there. We got to the town around noon and I did manage to spend three and a half hours or so photographing some of the collection, before she got a headache and wanted to leave. This was sort of okay with me as I had managed to fill up my Cybershot's 1 Gig. photostick, and my Fujipix cammera was almost out of battery power. Next time I will come better prepared :lol:Even with the number of pics I took, around 800, I only really managed to concentrate on the Panzer !, the 234, a Krupp truck, a SdKfz. 11 Late, a Panzer III, a Panzer IV/G and some what on the Panther A. Also I managed to zero in on the two 251's there, a 251/7 and a 251/9 (early). I plan on going back on this coming Friday by train and staying over night to spend the two days really going crazy taking pics.
The day I was there they had the M-48 Patton tank open for the public to go inside. I got some great interior shots should I ever need them

On the way to Munster.


I seem pretty happy to be going to the Mecca of us armour nerds.


Will we ever get there?


Getting into town


Ta da! I'm there at last

Some small selection of the other things I saw because of my limited time there and on this computer it will have to suffice for now.
The Panzer I. In pretty good shape but not totally stock.


Panther A


RSO (got some great shots)


a general shot of some of the WW II collection


a photomerge of some stuff I never really got a chance yet to look at...

James,

good to see that you made it to Munster. The drive down there in summer can be very enjoyable from Hamburg. If you've never been before it seems like you'll never find it. My favourite part is obviously the Axis collection, and the super cheap admission price. Did you get a chance to eat at the Imbiss over the road? A little taste of Germany right there. How long are you still in Germany for?

MfG

Martin

I guess the German language really is different depending on what part of Germany you are in - I was taught that Wednesday was Mittwoch und Thursday was Dursttag. Have fun over there - Tchuss!
