    Hi, i uploaded a few Sherman pics. Little story: Maybe you know this famous Dutch Violin player André Rieu.
    Well, his studio and warehouse is a few hundred meters away from my home. I once noticed some tankwrecks behind the fences, becaus the fences were damaged. I found out his son, Pierre Rieu is a collector of amarican armour and restorateds it. So on a nice day a took a walk with my kids and took my camera with me. I walked by this terrain and to my surprise the gate was open. So i sneaked in (at least i thought i was sneaky, not knowing that i was already abserved by 4 security camera's at that certain moment lol) and took some pictures from the Shermans. You can see them in my album. My thought was to have some reference material for modelbuilding and weathering those models. So after the photoshoot i walked away as if nothing happend. A few minuts later a black car drove towards me and blocked my way. It was the security guy who saw me hanging around at the shermans. After a few appoligises of my i was free to go...
