    Its the real thing probably with a newer paint job :D
    It was actually a shock for me since the last time I went there I was just a kid and I never though the I.A.R. was so big and that damn Mig 15 was huge...

    You should have seen the whole thing...its was like a whole train...very long and its good it wasn't scrapped...its a piece of history...anyway the museum its very tight on money so the outside pieces are in a horrible shape..I feel bad for the german tracked truck...it has the engine intact and most mechanic parts from what I saw...

    That's quite a collection of hardware. Why was the one tracked vehicle painted red?

    looks like a primer they sprayed on it to keep it from rusting more.

    Well unfortunately it didn't had a plate with a description so I have no idea who made it...my intuition tells me Krupp but its just a wild guess...

    Great stuff mate. In Johannesburg here in SA we have a half-track from the German Army that they brought back from the desert war and it is in great shape and still painted in the color it was and still towing the gun they found it with.

    It is sad to see the truck like that and I have not seen any in a museum yet so it was nice to see that there is still some left.

    I now have a dire wish to see that thing restored...unfortunately I don't have that kind of money for now...I'm more concerned for the mechanical parts but since they are German I'm sure they will last...I read on the Kubinka museum site that they found a Panther in Russia and after 60 years of staying in the ground the Bosch magneto was still working...I hope thats the case with the half track

    Great shots mate. Same old story over here with a local aero museum.

    That half track is a FAMO isn't it?

    I agree Königstiger, I'm sure it's an SdKfz 7/1 too (Mercedes), that was the highlight for me of all the pics!

    Thanks for posting them!:)
