  1. No idea. As far as I'm aware the only two in existence are in Münster and Kubinka.
  2. From this weekend (which is Tankfest) they are introducing a CGI viewer sort of thing from World of Tanks whereby, I think, you put on a pair of 3D Virtual Reality goggles and you can see a rendered life size version of the Sturmtiger. They had the console in place playing an advert for it but it wasn't up and running. You can see the set-up on the right of the second photo.
  3. Yesterday I had a day out and visited the Bovington Tank Museum and here are some photos of the Tiger Exhibition. Unfortunately they haven't managed to get a Sturmtiger but they do have a Sturmtiger gun barrel. The Porsche variant of the Königstiger and the Jagdtiger... ...and the shell that the Jagdtiger fired: The Henschel variant of the Königstiger and the Elefant which is on loan for 2 years from the US. Lastly, the well known Tiger '131' and the Sturmtiger's gun barrel.
  4. Nice photo - do you think it is a relative of the previous owner?

  11. Thanks for the additional snippet. It sounds like you were glad you didn't go through their training regime, and who can blame you.

  15. Usually it is just a continuation of his service such as this example shown here but unfortunately it looks like when NARA originally copied the files they didn't bother (or forgot) to copy the reverse of Zwick's one.
