WWII Reference Photos - Tank Fest 2013

Today (17 August, 2013) was the annual open house for the Americans in Wartime Museum held in Nokesville, VA USA.  This is the fourth year I've attended, and this year this was more military hardware than any of the previous years.  Most of the equipment is from WWII, although you'll see some more modern vehicles mixed in.

Below is the photo dumps from the open house.  These make great reference photos for any armor modeler or WWII war gamer.
