    Hi,
    Yes, saw that myself last Sunday as well as the big bronze eagle from the Riechskanzlei. Not a lot of German kit other that that. I was hoping for a bit more than I saw but then I guess there is more to war than just ww.2 German kit.

    I have been following this item ever since I saw go up for auction, its recently sold for 90000. Glad to see it when to a museum.

    Here are some photos of the pilot it belonged to, and his plane. Heinz-Wolfgang Schnaufer (second left) in the photo with Hitler.

    Wow quite an amount of kills. He survived the war to get killed in a car accident in 1950!...
    It's a wasted trip baby. Nobody said nothing about locking horns with no Tigers.

    So actually a ME110.... time to correct the thread title?

    We have possibly the opposite side at the Australian war Memorial in canberra.
    At least it looks the same.

    Hi Jersey, yes very disappointing, it's based WW1 for a while due to the Centurial.
    The best thing for me was the Allgemeine Generals uniform set in the holocaust display. Was not allowed to take pictures but sneaked a few, and a short video.
