        The US tanks and the Soviet stuff looks well-kept. I hope they get around to the rest while there is something left of them.

          Some restoration is being done. The facility is not funded to the extent that they can have a full time staff dedicated to that process. Also as stated in another thread there is a matter of building proper facilities to house the relics. Unless that is done the restoration that is happening may be a moot point over the long haul.

          The last time I spoke to the curator, Dr. Atwater, the lack of a proper building to store the machines in is what is keeping the Tiger I in England for example.

            Even the Russians keep thier relicis in a shed out of the rain.

            If this is the best they can do, then maybe the collection needs to be broken up and placed in the hands of private museums.

              up where their ID numbers would be?

                Private or other museums I'd agree with. Private collectors who do not open their holdings to public view I do not agree with.

                There are plans to build suitable housing for them. Now if they can get the spendolas from the Feds................

                  Those pieces were cut out either for 1. study or 2. to provide observation into the interiors for whomever. A couple of my interior shots are taken through wire coverings over the openings.

                  You're welcome!
