I think you would enjoy visiting. It's a very attractive museum featuring planes and vehicles from the WW II era.

Great series of images, Walter - and your short narration / introduction very appropriate.

Well executed and post processed. Very even lighting and details preserved.

Glad you took these, handheld.

Regards

Paul

it's a Notek driving light intended for use during air-raid blackouts. it produced a very soft, diffused beam that was almost impossible to see from altitudes above 2,000 feet, yet gave the driver enough light to see the road. Notek lights were employed on just about every military vehicle the Wehrmacht used in WWII, from motorcycles to the largest tanks, though many larger vehicles also used lights with the slit-type mask like the windshield spotlights on this staff car.

nice series, Walter!
