Bovington Museum's Tank Armada - Part I
So, due to other requirements and life getting quite hectic again, there's going to be a short break on the website. I had hoped to have a review up to cover for today, but because Starburst Magazine still seems to be having problems in the editing room, we can probably expect that sometime in the next fortnight. In lieu of this and the fact the next few 40,000 fan theory articles deserve more time and effort than any rush job, this is going to instead be a quick selection. Having been given a chance to finally visit Bovington Tank Museum on Tiger Day, a friend and I managed to take enough photos and video between us to fill a small gallery.
So, if a vast collection of images of armoured fighting vehicles doesn't interest you, feel free to skip the next two days. Otherwise, I hope you enjoy the following shots.
