priceless..! (Sturmtiger and Tiger I pics too..)
more now that the afvinteriors.com site has been offline indifenitively due to the amount of traffic.
sadly, the complete optic sight for the main gun is missing (my main area of interest...)

best regards

The only German AFVs Finnish museums have are StuG IIIG and Panzer IVJ.

By the way, that StuG IIIG next to Tiger II used to belong to Finnish Army.

I have NO idea how the Germans managed to make up such a horrible colour-scheme!

Where did they get that big swastiska from?

Monrad, I see in "your" pics lack of many interiors particular, the sighting telescope for example...
Do you know what are average conditions of the tank ?
Can it move ?
What about the engine ?
