    The white side wall tires are a nice touch. Surprised they have not melted them down for new gear.Thanks for the photos and your good luck in getting home and not being jailed as a spy!

    Nice photos. The guns that are outside seem to be kept in fairly good condition (apart from the grass growing around them).

    Does anyone know what this is?

    If no one can answer i'll check next time i'm back there.
    The whole museum is undergoing a refurb, so hopefully there will be some new stuff on display.

    Cheers

    Pete
