Bovington
The AFV ASSOCIATION was formed in 1964 to support the thoughts and research of all those interested in Armored Fighting Vehicles and related topics, such as AFV drawings. The emphasis has always been on sharing information and communicating with other members of similar interests; e.g. German armor, Japanese AFVs, or whatever.

So the Porsche King Tiger and the Jagdtiger got a new paint job.
Looking forward to take pictures of all of them. I will be there a few days before Tankfest

Not really sure why they painted them tan? I don't think either type was used in Italy.

It's a complex subject. This seems like a good starting point:

Okay, so me and P-O can recognize each other.
For the others, I am 1.90 m, 100 kg, 47 years old.
I carry a black backpack with camera gear and a monopod hanging from it. Next to the Arena I will have a Canon camera with a long white lens. That should be sufficient Smile

See you there

Massimo

The "Tiger Collection" display is wonderful, the trip would be worthy even just to see it.

For those attending Tankfest. The StuG III had some steering issues earlier this week but now seems fine. The Jagdpanther entered the arena earlier today.

The Jagdpanther keep having some technical issues. The Saint-Chamond is there. Seems like the Light Tank Mk IV was finished in time for the show and run.

Yesterday I've met with P-O and even managed to enjoy dinner together.

Today, by sheer chances, I've met Paul (aka Megashort). I was along the border of the Arena and one guy took a place just next to me, I recognized his peculiar Olympus gear and call him, he was Paul! Just incredible how we met among 8k people.

I am sorry I failed to meet Pzkpfw-e

Massimo

PS I've shot 2800 pictures in two days Smile
