Panzergruppe Tarraco scenery: the Panzodrom

Postby Jussek » Fri Jun 11, 2021 3:32 pm

heya guys!

Last weekend at the Panzodrom we also joined in the commemorations of the 77th anniversary of Operation Overlord, and for the first time we had a meeting that lasted the entire weekend, including night operations!

great atmosphere, great dinner, campfire, perfect camping, some rain, great breakfast, great lunch, and great companions. I got really tired of the preparations, but we all finished tremendously satisfied and wanting to repeat.

here you have a lot of photos, as you can see, very few decent ones have come out at night ... (not sure if this is related to alcohol, or light ... or both ...)

first, the night shots, i've waited for years to see the reflections of the postlamps on the water!

this is the procedure to install the main bridge... we need two overweight cranes to install the stone brige... :haha:

Image

Image

Image

some 'fog of war' pictures

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

after this hot situation, some river crossing was mandatory!

Image

Image

Image

Image

but it was not enough, once i've returned home, i had to use a water hose to clean the lower hull, the roadwheels, the tracks, and the belly of the tanks! ;D

we have a friend who is designing and laser cutting accessories for the houses in 1/16!

so, if anyone is interested, drop me a line, i will talk to him and ask for models and prices

and some more pictures of the vehicles

Looks way better than a movie set. Jaw dropping realism and impressive display of teamwork.

Jussek,

The Panzodrom never fails to amaze me! Absolutely love the night shots and pictures of the KT in the smoke! :clap: The night shots look incredibly realistic for wartime conditions! The bridge is also amazing! I can only imagine how fun that place is! :thumbup:

Cheers,
Eric.

I knew it would be a world class venue !!
Sun, beer, fantastic terrain, ambience of night lighting to set the mood !!
Brilliant.
And great to see it’s a family group that are behind it too.
Now if you all could get Mr Marquez to get better soon, that would top off your high status :thumbup:
