This year, rather than fly over for the Scale Model Challenge show in Veldhoven, I decided to take the car and try and visit a few museums along the way. One of the highlights for me was the Fallschirmjager exhibition at the Oorlogsmuseum in Overloon; just North East of Eindhoven near the River Meuse and the German border.
As well as the vehicle exhibits at the museum, they have one of the most extensive displays of Fallschirmjager uniforms and equipment in existence and it has really got me thinking about a future project.
For obvious reasons the exhibits are all behind glass - I shudder to think how much this collection must be worth - and it does make photography a little tricky. So apologies for the quality of some of the photo's but hopefully they are of some use;
