Is that a tank barrel visible in the background in pic 6? 


Looking to buy D-Day and 101st/82nd related groupings

Hello gentlemen,

 

Thank you very much for the compliments.

The barrel in the pic 6 is from a german jagdpanther, it is a reconstitution modèle, 1/1scale. The wheels (16 on 16),  the tracks (44 on 86) & the back door are originals.

I don't know if I can show photos of my german collection.

The tracks in photo 7 comes from a M3 A1 Stuart US tank. (see détail photo).

Best regards from Alsace , France.

Carfin.

Carfin,

  Please continue to post more photos of your collection.  I'm sure all the members of this Forum are appreciating the viewing of your assemblage of WW2 items.

 

  May I request that you show us more of your ordnance related items and what you may have pertaining to mines and booby traps.

Amazing. I'm sure your collection cost more than my house. Do your guns have to be deactivated?

Hello gentlemen,

 

Thank you for the replies & bravo, not many US collectors recognize US WW2 body traps. I have more mines or body traps in my collection, but they are german.

 

All the guns in my collection are declared to the French authority or deactivated.

 

Best regards from Alsace , France.

Carfin.

Carfin,

  Please explain the woman in the evening gown and hat?  Is she to represent a GI's "special evening" while on leave, OSS operative, or another explanation?
