Welcome Megashorts! I've long been an admirer of your pictures.

It carries an early version "topfblende" and the gun looks like a KwK 39. They are both strong signs it's an original Hetzer.

One of the episodes of Combat Dealers is about this vehicle. It shows them buying in the early mantlet and using it to replace the later one it had fitted. Conversely, they give information on its chassis number which IIRC implied it was an early build.

Hi Massimo & Pierre-Oliver

Thanks Smile

I've been lurking for a while Smile

Perhaps you could introduce yourself for the benefit of other members? You seem to be keeping good company in Massimo and P-O. We have a forum for that purpose, or you could just open a new thread and say "Hello".

Welcome

Well, he takes some mighty fine snaps!


I don't know who Gigi Edgley is, but we may have to open a special forum on that subject. Laughing

Megashorts, could I use some of your photos on PreservedTanks.com? With full credit, of course.

Can somebody please update me on Vehicle Conservation Centre (VCC)? I recall it was possible to visit once a day, during a specific time, without access to the ground floor, only from the public observation gallery. Is it still the case? I failed to find info on the Museum's website.

What about the public observation gallery, how far is from the vehicles? Is a telephoto lens required from there?

Massimo

PS The Museum just got a T-72:

The VCC is open for viewing from the gallery above the vehicles from 2pm on normal visitor days. This gallery is right over the top of some vehicles in the upper corner of the place. You can see it before they filled the place up in this photo:

88mm PaK 43 by Megashorts, on Flickr

On some special events eg Tankfest, Britain at War etc the ground floor is open to the public. Its primarily a storage facility so the vehicles are very close together. They do change them around so it is possible to get a clear view sometimes.

Its quite dark in the VCC so a tripod or alternative is a good idea. I've had success using other vehicles, a shelf running around it or a friend!

Search my photostream for "VCC" Smile

Thanks for the info Paul, very useful. I am not worried about light conditions, I can push my camera to ISO 4000 and still get good results. It's now clear to me I have to bring a telephoto lens.

I will be in England next month and may spend a day in Bovington. During my last visit the Tamiya hall was closed, since they were setting up the Afghanistan display. All in all, I have enough excuses to go back Smile

Massimo

PS Thinking about it, the telephoto could be handy in Hendon as well

Here's a couple of shots of the Pak43 when it was outside the infantry's heavy weapons wing near Larkhill in the early 1990's.
