A trip to Overloon War Museum, Holland, October 2011, Part 1

Trip to Overloon was one of the main events during my recent trip to Holland. Here are couple of pictures that I took there. The Museum offers a good collection of various military gear, vehicles, aeroplanes and other military related stuff. Below you will find a selection of rarities kept in the museum...

SMC 2011, more about the show

After a busy weekend I had on my University I'd like to present a pack of photos from the SMC show that took place in Eindhoven on 2nd October. Hope you enjoy because I enjoyed it a lot and will be there next year. I had the opportunity to judge in 3 classes along with Roy Schurgers and Sven Frisch in the company. That was a totally new and fresh experience for me also because of the simple and reasonable criteria for the competition.
