Aleks, most of the people look like US personnel photoshopped in to me. In particular the "officer" standing on the crane trailer, he looks very US Navy.

Are the tanks real? Or are they just very good models? :?

It seems that tanks are real, too much details for an average kits. Of course it can be kits in 1/35 scale or larger, made by the real professional, but I don't see any reason to put so much effort just to create one photo.
Best regards,

Thanks Piotr! If the photo was for 200 euros, I might see someone taking the time to do this. :wink:

The Tiger turret is on the deck and this officer is standing on it not the crane.

The Tiger on the barge is '712' which reached the USA in July 1943


Tiger '712' at Aberdeen showing the missing cover on the turret.

The barge Tiger turret has the same cover missing (by the officers right foot).

Image

The turret of '712' as unloaded at Aberdeen showing it was shipped seperately from the hull.

The markings on the side of '712' at Aberdeen

Markings on the barge Tiger.

2 other Tigers at New York harbour. The barge in the background is much like the one where we can see '712'

In fact such diorama would cost thousands of euros total ;)

But it seems that Michael explained all and photo is real one.

Michael, good detective work!! I knew this photo had to be German Armour shipped back to the states from Africa or Italy-I just didn't have the evidence to back myself up.

(Plus, I'm glad that it turned out to be a real photo-Posting pics of models wouldn't make me look that good-haha)

All the best,

Arthur.
