Ditto, great set of photos! Especially love the King Tiger interior pics, like this one:



Is the hatch now open on it or did you get special access? Seemed like you had to have taken the pic from the rear inside of the turret?

BTW, for viewers - be sure to click to page 5 for Dennis's new pics although the other albums are well worth looking at too!

Hi there, also posted on the missing links forum but don't know if you saw it. Is the Morris Light Recce Car in a good position to take photos of, and are any parts of the museum closed like it says on the website? Might go this week, hope I get to i've wanted to go for years.

Okay, I guess that makes sense - re: Centurion.
