  5. The clip etc on the back looks the same as a Army one I just found on Google doing an image search. The Army eagle is different on yours and looks like a Luftwaffe one http://www.wehrmacht-awards.com/war_badges/luftwaffe/panzer_luftwaffe.htm I saw the Army one was selling at $2500 so might be worth digging deeper as if real : [h=2]Collector Warning[/h]Due to their late institution these awards are exceptionally rare. Be wary of purchasing an example unless you have handled known originals. [h=2]Numbered Luftwaffe Panzer Badges - 25,50,75,100[/h]On November 10, 1944, just one week after the introduction of the standard Luftwaffe Panzer Badge, Reichsmarshall Goring introduced four new classes of panzer badge for 25, 50, 75, and 100 engagements. These badges were larger than the original badge and featured a small box containing the appropriate engagement number at the base of the wreath. WARNING: These badges are extremely rare, if not impossible, to find. It is highly unlikely anything but trial samples were produced.
  6. Havent seen this pop up in here as yet? http://www.news.com.au/world/wwii-ghost-submarine-discovered-with-71-bodies-entombed/news-story/1fced5e8734c60e5d5df75b31fbf3384
  7. Only the fire support ones....also had Scorpion or Fox turrets. Adrian will know which ones. I never saw a Salladin turreted one as before my time, only seen those in photos.
  8. Just noticed this museum on the weekend. Unfortunately it was shut so my photos through the fence are p poor but I'll drop in on my next trip. I see a Valentine, Sexton, Stuart, M113, another armored car I couldn't get a shot of. This yellow anti tank carrier, would it be a Lloyd? Also I am guessing it gets driven backwards as opposed to normal and the engine is under the barrel? I wonder if some of this was from the other wheatbelt town
  9. very nice.. I like the bench holes idea so that things can be clamped anywhere :-D

  12. I saw a good Russian one with TD Pinzgauers which I liked but now I cannot find the video The only way I figured I could copy it would be you drive the same circuit many times as some of the added angles were: - front bumper viewing front and rear - rear bumper, viewing front and rear - side mounted - underside mounted - road mounted, ie drive over
