I was due to go to the Panzer Museum for Stahl Auf Der Heide this weekend but couldn't make it due to family illness so thanks for posting these. Will definitely visit at another time.

Thanks for the photos! It brings back many memories when I was last there. Question: is that the same Morser Tiger that was on display at Sinsheim? I had the good fortune of being allowed to photograph it from the inside several years ago and I thought that recognized the missing casement bolt on the driver's side as
being from that AFV

Darius, thanks a lot for taking these! After 20 years in Germany, I've never been to the museum, I should really get up to Munster.

It was definitely worth going there. I wish i had some more time in ww2 hall, but hey, i know what to look for next time
As for the Sturmtiger, rear hatch was open, took few ultra blurry shots. I wish it would be possible to crawl inside all those vehicles BTW, there's Leopard 1 outside, you can get inside turret (or not if you have claustrophobia)

Is that white counter-shading behind the wheels of the Tiger? Never seen that before on WW2 German stuff...

This must be fresh dunkelgelb coat. Difference in shade is because of flash of my camera (top panels are lighted by museum lights and skylights, area behind wheels - most from flash and scattered light). Its the same color as on top.
