This is a very good museum
You wouldn't happen to know which vehicles are in the museum?
Well, there's an M4A1E8 Sherman with a bulldozer blade, an M5 Stuart in USMC colors, A Panzer Mark III, a WW1 Renault, a T-34/85, an Iraqi T-72,
an M48 Patton, and an M551 Sheridan, among others. It's been awhile since I last visited the museum, so I can't remember all of what they have. The museum also has a number of artillery pieces, both towed and SP, along with a collection of uniforms and historical military headgear. AND a collection of small arms that is very impressive.
They also appear to have a Pz. Kpfw. IV, but I can't determine the Ausf. from the photograph on their main site.
If you could take a note of the photographs there the next time you visit, it'd be great.
I plan to do so. I have photos (such as they are; I'm not the world's greatest photographer and it's kinda dark in the museum)of the tanks that they have, but I don't know where they are. My wife has a passion for putting things away, but not one for letting me know where she put them. :wink:
Even if I locate them, I can't post them, since I haven't got a scanner. Perhaps someone here can help with that, if I ever locate them.
BTW, the German tank is the only one they have, so one of us has misidentified it.
No rush - the main thing is getting all the vehicles up, the images can always follow.
The tank is definitely a Pz. Kpfw. IV lg., though the image is mirrored on the website.
Intersting, since I'm fairly certain that the tank is labeled a Mark III. But it has been awhile, so I might be wrong.
BTW, they also have a Dingo scout car on display. And they also have a miniature battlefield for holding radio-controlled miniature tank battles.
That is quite interesting - if I can get a confirmation of the misidentification, I'll write them about it.
If you mean the picture that comes up on the homepage - it is labelled as a Pz.IV
If I get the time I'll give it a thorough look to see if I can determine its ausf.
I do remember that individual tanks were upgraded duiring their lives, so ausf.'s could get.. confused.
Well, it has been about a year since I last visited the museum, the last being my third visit. So it is quite possible that my memory is playing tricks with me, and it is actually a Mark IV. I do plan to take a notebook with me on my next visit and write down everything that they have on display.
