Visited the Army Museum in Brussels today with Cees Broere after the Moveleo Model Force show in Helchteren.

 

Seems like nothing ever changes here which is both good and bad i guess.

Very nice pic's Jeroen, and thank's for sharing them.

 

 

 

always better when they're untouched

Untouched isn't the best word for some of those planes. Some planes where very un-proffesionell restored, like the Fairy Battle for example.

Everytime i see new photo's of the museum, something is moved or removed, but still, with the same dirty, dusty and cluttered look.

It's sad to see, because they have a unique collection in theire hands, and still they just don't have a clue what to do with it.

Great museum and entrance is free, which is additional + into my eyes :) I was  there 2 years ago, but had just 2 hours and I spent them taking pictures of the RE.8 and Bristol fighter, untill my camera died. So if someone is interested into detail pictures of those 2 let me know.
