Striking pictures of an excellent display. In black and white I believe a couple would have even passed for era pictures.
And I'm SOOooo glad you mentioned the metal tanks lent themselves to being set on fire. While they truly added to the realism, it would have been a shame to sacrifice models in that fashion. It still irks me that I once broke down a dozen tanks for their running gear to convert Opel trucks into maultiers before I learned about the kits available through Plastic Soldier.
