I post in His Glorious Name
28th December 2004
Hmm, well as i said some time ago (but before i lost much money in minor bike crashes) i'll soon go to the French Saumur Tank Museum, and take pics of all tanks i'll find there with me (1m85) next to em. I was there once and was lucky enough to see their KT drive around (damn impressive), i was suprised by the size of french 39-40 tanks like the R35 or the H39, i thought they'd be smaller. Basically everything was bigger than I imagined. Even a Panzer 2 is impressive ! Compared to other tanks tho, like the M10 TD a KT ain't much bigger, but the M10 itself is quite large. BTW: those M3 halftrack models are way too tall iirc, i had a halftrack and an M8 greyhound passing next to me (approx 2m away) and they're damn small compared to the tanks. Hopefully i'll finally be able to get back to that Museum next week, and as said: i'll fill my cam's mem cards with pics.
