Wanna go Double Dutch?
9th December 2003
'[79thNikiTa']ok here it is ...
You can find the complete topic about that trip on our forum ... sorry it s in french but you can still see images and videos.
If not here are the main links (but not everything) :
- Several images from "the tanks museum of Saumur" - Again Saumur - Video Spit MkV et MkXIX (XVid) - Video Me109G (Xvid) - Air show : Ferté-Alais 2006 (video) - Ferté-Alais 2006 (images + videos) - Saumur : small tiger (:lol: video) - Saumur : heavy tanks (video) <-- don't miss that one !!
:beer:[/quote]Very nice videos. I and Lighting went to the carrousel this year but it's not as good as this. The tanks are much further away on the carrousel and you can't walk around them before/after the show. :( I think I need to go there next year when they have the show @ the museum (not the carrousel!) but I didn't hear anything about it this year. When did/do they announce such things? Really would like to be there next year but I would have to know a month or so in advance to ask free from work.
Nice photo's too. But I do have a small comment. More interior shots wouldn't have hurt. Photos of the dashboard, meters, levers, pedals etc. During the carrousel I hoped to get in the german tanks (not allowed though they were all behind a high fence :( ) but did not succeed. On the photos you showed it looks like you can see tourists on the Tiger II etc. :eek: Would be nice to (ask if you can) take picture of the interior of those tanks. Certainly would not have been impossible for the transport vehicles. I mean no offense but the general picture of a tank from the side (often) is not very special. Interior shots and closeups (outside and inside) are very special though and EXTREMLY useful goes for tanks, uniforms, weapons etc.
A tip: If you make close ups, then first make 1 overview picture so you can see what vehicle you are photographing. Then do a walkaround (closeups) , interior photo's of various positions (driver, commander, other seats and ofcourse any buttons/guns/stuff they operate).
Still very nice photos and a fantastic video! :lookaround: Thanks for sharing.polskaWell, I shall be visiting the Polish Aviation and Home army museum in Krakow during my vacation, so I shall be sure to take some pictures.
Some? We want to see a full memory card! :lol:
[quote=hslan.Schwabenpfeil]Here's a german museum near Sinsheim. They got lots of ww2 stuff in quite good conditions. http://www.technik-museum.de/uk/sinsheim/
some of their exponats:
Pak 35/36, 3.7cm
3 "big boys"
Many many other pics of the militaria stuff in that museum, see http://www.panzer-modell.de/specials/ontour/sinsheim/gal1.htm There's even a war-locomotive, for those who like to see trains in FH2
It has intresting things but if you check the website (I checked it earlier this week, some of us are planning a trip to Koblenz or Saumur :naughty: ) you see there is a lot behind fences. And not a simple rope you can ignore but a nice steel one. Makes taking close ups or interior shots of things close to impossible. :( Still might be very useful if anybody is near there.
You don't happen to have photos of there or plans to go there aye? Would be lovely. Remember: If you want to be as sneaky as me make a normal tour first. When done you can try to get behind barriers (not allowed) to take photo's or climb on a tank to pull it's drivers/commanders hatch. Checking the bottom may also reveal an open escape hatch you can sneak in. It's not allowed but "I'm not everybody and in the name of FH..." :p/ One must be careful and respectfull of the equipment though, damaging it is unacceptable. :D
If I remember correctly, Trois-rivière have an musem of war(not a big but they do the job)
You sure? Since I almost go there everyday, I should check that... Any hint on the name?
EDIT : Nvm, I've just found it. Its the "Musée Militaire du 12e Régiment Blindé du Canada", located in the old town. Unsurprisingly, the Firefly I knew was in T-R is in front of this very same museum. It probably isn't "all WW2" stuff, since its about this regiment, wich fought in pretty much all wars, conflicts and armed interventions involving Canada from WW2 to Afghanistan.
Unfortunately, its closed for 2006 and re-opens in 2007 :(
I have some pictures of WW2 aircraft that I saw at the Willow Grove Airshow, which took place in June. I'll upload them now.
The airbase also has an ME262 on display (a trainer version, but still :p). I might have pictures of that, but if i don't, I can drive like 5 miles to take some for you guys ;)

Thank you very much for those magnificent walkarounds, Taranov. Especially the Bear-H and Yak 130.
As for the museums, I visited the Imperial War Museum London, Duxford (both the land hall, air museums and Flying Legends Airshow), Bovington Tank Museum, Cabinet War Rooms, Fleet Air Arm Museum, Imperial War Museum HMS Belfast, London Blitz Museum, Royal Air Force Museum and Royal Navy Submarine Museum last summer.
However, due to my limited mem. card space and lack of a laptop/storage device, I couldnt take that many pictures of each vehicle. Therefore, I have few to none walkarounds which seems to be what you are interested in.
