Aberdeen Pics

Here's some of the pictures I took while at APG.

this is about half of whats inside.

Big huh.

This is said to have hydraulic drive

a couple of panzers, III & IV, I think. These two both had some armor cut away and you could see inside.
And finally the big momma.

Correct me if I'm wrong. It's a Jagdtiger. Very hard to see from this picture but someone took a couple of shots at it.

You are correct Trevor, it's a Jagdtiger. Awesome brute. When's Tamiya gonna make an updated version? Thanks for sharing.

Cool pics! I sure wish they would keep those up though and actually paint them their correct colors. Actually show people the "real" thing.

Those bring back memories of my trip there Trevor ...... did you manage to move around the base and see the other vehicles that have or were you pretty much restricted to the museum area?
Happy Modelling and God Bless Robert

Some really good pics of some nice beasts. Do they allow them to graze free, or are they chained up?
Thanks for sharing your trip! I need to go there sometime.

Thanks for the nice comments guys.

Sherm.
We were not authorized to drive to other areas of APG. We were to proceed straight to the museum parking lot.
I did drive real slow past some near the gate, because there was no real good place to pull over and look. From what I remember there was another panzer IV, an M-32, a Staurt plus a couple others.

Thanks for the great pics, and I agree with MONSTERARMOR, the should be in their war paint. Looks like a fine trip.

Wish you could have seen the other armor located on some of the other access roads. Great pics!
