Well what a damn good weekend for some tankin' fun. First time at Bovinton and certainly won't be the last! The weather was fantastic, as my brillient red arms are constantly reminding me with the pain. Really struggled to fit everything in the limited time we had and not helped by the useless battery life plagued by smartphones so for next year, a new DSLR is a must I think!

After 'borrowing' some power thanks to the staff at Bovington, I was able to charge up the phone and take some shots of some tank goodness, at the latter half of the day anyway.

Here's what I got:

I'l let the pictures do the talking, sorry for the quality of some of them and I hope some of you get some enjoyment from the somewhat rushed shots I took.  :smile:

Awesomeness!

WTH is that thing between the Shermans? Looks kind of like a Centurion hull with a gigantic gun.

Nice pics.

By the way, why does KingTiger have ripples on the armor?

It's an FV4005 mounted with the 183mm gun.

Hello there
@ The OP thanks for the pictures they are fantastic  :great:
Whats breathing is the size of the Tiger2 proto when you walk into the display area.
If any of you haven't been to Bovington I highly recommend going they have some really rare examples.

Kind Regards
