Hi all –

We’ve posted a GIANT gallery (205 photos) from the Kruse WW2 Victory Museum in Auburn, IN. Tons of fascinating vehicles!!!

afvagabond.smugmug.com...8629_XEAHX

No teasers to tempt this time - too many to choose from!

Enjoy!

A truly eclectic mixture!
That Kubelwagen-based "dummy tank" is amazing! Love the stripey camo on that Tatra. The place is a modeller's delight, all that soft skin kit & half-tracked variants, plus a variety of "Rommel's Funnies". I'm amazed that it's all survived.

There has been discussion about the exhibits before - a fair amount of the collection are replicas.

Very nice pictures Vagabond
About the discussion of being replicas , I read on a German forum that most of the german stuff
is indeed put together with wood and plastic and sheer metal
The carriage from the Maultier is said to be from a Universal Carrier.
But after all a nice collection

I am aware not everything is original (you can spot some replicated parts even from these shots). But I enjoyed the photo gallery anyway. I haven't seen pictures of all the various softskins in just a single place before. I agree the mix of subjects is very fascinating.

Thanks!

Massimo

Certainly convincing replicas/renovations.
I have read that some of the vehicles are from the defunct collection at Arlon.

As I referred to on the smugmug gallery post - I understand that many of the vehicles are replicas and while I wish there were 100% accurate examples of each type of vehicle from that period, I'm am glad to have a representation of the vehicle at which to look.

As Jim mentioned, there has been a fair amount of prior discussion as to the authenticity of the collection. Some of those discussions took place on the following thread:

www.com-central.net/in...ght=auburn
most of the discussion starts on page 2 and continues from there.

Thanks for taking the time to visit the galleries!
Cheers!

I have nothing against replicas - they serve a purpose. But I wish they were clearly marked as such. Who will know in a few years or decades from now what is authentic and what is a replica?

And yes, practically all these vehicles come from the Arlon museum.

Vagabond you should mention that in the photo description or remove it from the photo gallery.

Thanks for the information bialy-r.

I've amended the photo description to read:
Polsky-Fiat C2P - now in the Adam Rudnicki Collection in Poland.

I'm choosing to leave the photos in the gallery as it was displayed there when I visited.

The Tatra with the wicked paint job and fin is definitely on my Christmas wish-list.

I"m thinking small-block Chevy.
