Thanks Eduardo.

Some interesting exhibits there. The Big plane at the top is a Douglas Dakota ..used in the Berlin airlift after the war to save the population from starving.
The model ships are amazing and the Taube Dove WW1 aeroplane..I saved a copy as I want to build a flying model and that's a great picture so cheers !

Interesting to see the spoked wheels.> This was an early warplane. Later in the war solid wheels were used to prevent grass from wrapping around the spokes and causing take off and landing accidents.

I hope you are feeling better now Eduardo : )

Part II

Sorry if I go back and forwards in time, in the pics.
Asked my wife to stand sometimes next to the things I was taking a picture so you could have a sense of the size of the objects.
The one man bunker and the submarine are an example.

This is a car made by a german airplane builder that,
after world war I was over, he wasnīt allowed to build airplanes anymore. The result is this - so...hibrid, isnīt it?

Hi Joe

I understand you want to build the Taube, I fell in love with it as soon as I saw it. Very elegant, must come out great in a model. Happy to be useful for you in that sense. The wheels were looking really fragile, like the ones of a bicycle! Donīt forget to show us the result of your homemade Taube
About the Dakota, the germans were calling it the "Candy Bomber", due to the nature of its mission.

I will feel better when I can ride my sweet bike again, Joe, meanwhile Iīm surviving the living-with-one-arm-only situation...how hard it is to put your socks on with one hand!...and other simple stuff that we take for granted. Like brushing your teeth with the right hand (iīm left handed!) or writing in this keyboard...terrible aha!

I was a bit disapointed with the low number of airplane models they had in there - almost none.
There was a huge aircraft carrier, canīt remember which one, with lots of F18īs, F16īs and alike, but missing still a lot to be finished, due to safety reasons after the 11th of September, what a shame. Only the planes were finished. The model must be 2.5 meters long!

Thanks again Eduardo. I must visit this museum someday soon. I have never seen a Stuka before. I hadn't realized anything had survived..They were rapidly superseded by technology during the early part of the war. The Stuka being easily countered by early marks of the Spitfire and Hawker Hurricane.

I saw a doc'y recently and the Stuka came down almost vertically...The g forces on pull out must have been phenomenal ...

Two complete JU-87s survive today.
One at the RAF Museum, London.
And a very nice tropical version in the Chicago Museum of Science and Industry. The also have the only remaining Type IX U-boat, U-505.

The Technical Museum in Munich is awesome too.

Thanks Ed.

Is that London Stuka in the Hendon Museum...I'll have a look and ask the googleman EDIT///yes it is at Hendon..I'll take a ride down there in the Springtime and post a few pics up.

I'd like to see that U boat..Is that one that surrendered and sailed into Portsmouth NH ?

I've seen the one in Liverpool that they salvaged from the bottom of the Irish Sea.

lamentably they cut it up into sections so that people can see inside. I was not ok with that....

I do remember it has 75 tonnes of Batteries. and the electric motors were made by Siemens...
