bombs

Post by Guillermo » Fri Feb 14, 2003 9:56 pm

Commissar,

Nowadays, when a WWII bomb is found in Germany or in England, a professional anti-bomb squad is called in to secure the area. And there are several cases of leftover grenades and landmines that'll explode after decades. However, the mud-uncovered Russian tank machine gun test is really fantastic. Jack Palance?

Grüss,

Guillermo

Hey guys, the restorers on this site have posted a bunch of new pictures, including pictures of the dismantling of the Hetzer and its new paint job. Check out the pictures of the disassembled suspension, they're pretty rare. Also, the pictures of the remote-control machine-gun assembly are the best I've ever seen.

Great Site Einsamer! Yes, I think we should include airplanes in the links, but especially recovered airplanes and those undergoing restoration.
