Default Tank Museum - list of vehicles

This is the full list of vehicles that Bovington are looking to get into the virtual museum. We can provide a number from the Ostfront set - plus we are hoping that some of the modders who have created new vehicles over the last few years can contribute their efforts.

What we are most likely missing are the WWI era, inter-war years and post-WWII vehicles. Over to you all!

Why is the T34/85 missing? Since most other famous ww2 tanks aren't in that list, I'm assuming it's because TWI handed over those roost models of them. Couldn't TWI hand over the T34/85 as well ;o?

so could a SM qualify, or would it have to be working/animated for a video of it in 'action'?

I believe they are only interested about tanks they got in their museum.

The thing is they got loads of tanks in their museum, the list is primarily tanks that are still missing. And that's why I wondered why TWI's T34/85 wasn't used. As they probably have models for tiger tanks etc.

I hadn't thought about that possibility - let me pass the question on to someone more technical!

The list is the vehicles they have set up in the new hall - the "virtual museum" will be a walk-around of the new hall itself, so the list reflects what is in there...

Any chance of getting some pretty specific and detailed reference photographs of the actual vehicles they have? There's some fairly limited resources available for some of these. Also, the more details available photograph-wise, the closer the textures will match the actual paint job in question ...



PS: By 'pretty specific and detailed' I mean lots and lots and lots of close ups, preferably with a known-size object available for estimations of scale, that sort of thing.

PPS: By 'lots and lots and lots' I mean a number greater in quantity than a cubic ****-ton. A couple hundred megabytes or so. The more the better.

Well, if you'd read the front page post

Yes, they have a semi-resident photographer. They have the vehicles (obviously). They also have plans and gawd knows what else in the archives. And they've had me in there - spent most of one day on their KV-1 a few years back. Not to mention the Tiger and Panzer III

All I see on the front page is the Gamingbolt thing, and before that the VE3D announcement?

THIS MAKES NO SENSE. SOVIET RUSSIA WILL SURELY BOYCOTT THIS MOCKERY OF AN EXHIBITION! (disregarding the dissolution, of course)

I'm not sure that's going to happen, A. Because there's no such thing as Soviet Russia anymore, and B. Because the Russian federation probably has better things to direct their attention to than Dorset.

Oh yeah, and C. TURN YOUR CAPS LOCK OFF.
