Might be time to dig out the Dvd of "A Bridge Too Far." Imho it had some of the best war movie cinematography of all time, largely because they were pre-CGI. They had real C47's, Shermans, half-tracks etc. And some brilliant photography. Great score too.
Many of the Shermans lined up on the dikes were plastic shells on VW bus chassis. I wonder whatever happened to them all? If you look very very closely you can spot them off in the distances. The close in tanks of course were all real. They had moving tracks that didnt quite touch the ground.

I just remembered. I went to college in Spokane (Gonzaga U.). We used to go down to Pullman and Moscow for rifle matches. There was some little down on the way down that had a Sherman tank as a memorial. Unfortunately we never stopped to take a closer look. No idea what the name of the town was.

Dracul: I think Redwolf has a Enfield. If not or not longer, then not until G&G releases theirs. The old gas Iron Airsoft brand SMLE isn't carried by anyone anymore and was such piece of crap. Not worth trying to track one down.

ajman: I don't think there's gonna be anything in northern New England anytime soon, and as far as I know there hasn't been in a while, but if you're willing to drive to Connecticut there's usually some decent sized battles a couple times a year.
