skiddyb went to Bovington on Thursday, only seen one pic of him in front of a Jagdpanther so far but I'm sure he has a load more.

Nice photo. Do you have any more closer pictures of them as that could be a really nice reference study for weathering and rust effects.
What, no image sigs!

So you weren't a million miles from me then in little old Bournemouth. Next time you're down this way pm me and we'll hook up for a coffee. Be nice to put a face to the names. :-)

Only got one other with my son stood in front of the lead Chieftain. Looking back I should have taken more, there were a few more Scorpions and another Chieftain too.

Thought it would be easier to make the full album public rather than upload stuff here.

Loads of rust / weathering stuff is posted as stock photos on my deviant art profile

Nice pics Angelwing. I missed Tankfest this year, but will do my best to make it next year. Might pop down later this year to look around and take pics on a quieter day though.

Yes, tankfest was bad for taking pictures in the museum, as it was rammed with visitors and had lots of retail stalls set up around the exhibits.
