The Iron Legend workshop in the Southern city of Huizhou is quietly assembling an army of killer robots, to be deployed nationally to protect strategically significant locations.
Much like how Tony Stark created the first version of his Iron Man suit out of scrap parts, the Iron Legend workshop uses scrap parts to build its supersoldiers.
A Fishermans Bend link to a "top secret" World War II tank manufacture program has been uncovered, triggering calls for a comprehensive review into the heritage value of the area's older buildings. IMPORTANT: Please note that you must now log in with your email address and not your username!
This top-secret unit, so highly classified that its very existence was denied by the Pentagon for 50 years, is finally being not just exposed, but placed in the spotlight by a Michigan Library and an award-winning documentary filmmaker. If this interests you, I recommend going through the original article, published on Seattle PI yesterday.
Another tool of trickery involved visual deceptions, created using life-size mock-ups of artillery, trucks, planes, tanks, and even buildings. WoW… that was a very interesting, detailed article about the Ghost Army written in Seattle PI. There is a showing of material from these events happening right now at the University of Michigan Graduate Library.
I’ve got your widget on my macbook and have been browsing your stuff for quite some time. A British engineer during the German charge towards Alexandria in northern Africa WW2,used the same method to drive away the frightful Panser regiment from unprotected fuel depots causing them to surrender to a handful of British soldiars,and later on to caused the German bombers to mistakenly bombard a dummy city some 20miles to the west of Alexandria instead of bombing the real city . This is an instructional video on how to build a massive, fully-functioning model of a Sherman Tank. This underground bunker with World War 1 and 2-era weapons, as well as modern-era vehicles has been discovered.

Secondly, even the most incompetent of post-Cold War disposal regimes isn't going to remember to demilitarise such armoured vehicles, store them in a crumbling cavern system and then proceed to forget about them for twenty years.

After avery major war, and after the end of the Cold War, forces are reduced, administrative staffs are reduced and instalaltions are closed. As for the vehicles; if it were a private collection, don't you think it odd someone would park them on government property?

From sprawling dioramas depicting the invasion of Normandy to full-scale LEGO aircraft carriers and battleships, the Second World War is a frequent subject among LEGO builders fascinated by the conflict’s history, people, and weaponry. Jon Hall has built an amazing replica of a¬†great dieselpunk dogfighter design by Jake Parker, and it has me soaring through the air with joy. This build is so detailed, the colors are perfect, the wing shapes are amazing, and even the details with decals are superb.

David, can you just whip up a quick LEGO British Bombe to help decipher your LEGO Enigma machine please?
The model is 1.2m long, contains around 6,000 pieces, and took James nearly 5 months to design and build.
James managed to squeeze no less than 5 Power Functions motors inside the model, allowing the rudder and various flaps to be operated using a remote control.
As the grandson of an American World War II veteran who was born and raised in Japan, I have a rather complicated relationship with the Pacific War in World War II. To commemorate this important event 70 years ago today, Dan Siskind has built the American battleship USS Missouri, which was the venue in Tokyo Harbor for Japan’s surrender.


This giant LEGO battleship dwarfs the room it’s currently housed in at the Mall of America in Bloomington, Minnesota. Dan Siskind has been designing a microscale USS Missouri, and he and his Brickmania crew have recently completed a full minifig-scale version that they’re hauling around the country to various events. As fun as building something from your own imagination always is, recreating something from history can be particularly challenging. Between 1936 and the end of WW2 a grand total of 27 Tribal class ships were built for the Royal Australian Navy, Royal Canadian Navy and (British) Royal Navy.
Matt Bace spent about about 45 days creating this highly-detailed model of the World War II American battleship USS Missouri. This weekend, in the Netherlands celebrations are being held to commemorate the 70st anniversary of Operation Market Garden.
It was one of the largest airborne operations of the war, which inevitably involved large numbers of C-47 Skytrain transports, such as the one built by Kenneth Vaessen, still marked with the black-and-white stripes that were applied to aircraft that participated in the D-day landing a few months earlier.
During WW2, the Grumman Corporation was the main builder of fighter aircraft for the United States Navy.
In 2007 he crushed a whole village on a bloodthirsty rampage, but today is rehabilitated and protects the workshop itself. Anyway, The Ghost Army was an elite unit made up of artists, designers, sound technicians, press agents, makeup artists, and professional photographers.
There was a Frenchman coming down the road, and when he saw the scene pictured in above photo, he thought he was hallucinating to see four men pick up a tank. I forget the whole story but Dick Strawbridge did a documentary episode on a group of men who mocked up the lights of airstrips and even whole cities miles away from their real location.
THE BASIC PURPOSE OF THIS SITE IS TO SEE AN ILLUSION… VURDLUK I AM FOLLOWING THIS SITE SINCE THE LAST 2 YRS AND TODAY U COME UP WITH THIS?? It was of great use in the build up to D-Day in convincing the Germans that the attack was to be at the Pas-de-Calais and not the real taget of Normandy.
At a point when Britain couldn’t defend its skies because it had so few fighters left, they built a zillion fake aircraft and placed them at airfields in plain view of Luftwaffe reconnaisance-spy aircraft.
Such rubber vehicle immitations can’t move and Germans were (and are) not that stupid.
It contains all kinds of vintage weapons, from a German 77mm Model-1896 WW1 cannons to tanks, armored vehicles and military trucks that are almost intact. But what I'm wondering is, how on earth did modern ( at least Cold War era ) hardware find it's way inside a completely secluded bunker that holds intact relics from WW1 & 2 ? The fabric of the tunnels has greatly deteriorated and is crumbling but the vehicles aren't significantly weathered or rusted and the tyres are all inflated?
I think most militaries would have used some during or post-War, but I think it unlikely that it would have been in contemporary use with the other vehicles, a Panhard VCR (the APC, which I don't think was ever in French service) and ERC (the armoured car, which was in French service in modest numbers).
Here on The Brothers Brick, you’ll find everything from LEGO M4 Shermans and Tiger tanks lumbering across the landscape to F4U Corsairs, P-51 Mustangs, and Mitsubishi Zeros patrolling the skies. But beyond the impressive scale and the lovely custom stickering, it’s the smooth curves and the shaping of the various sections which make this creation stand out for me. Its beautifully sculpted hull is an impressive 377 studs long and the model took 9 months to complete.
This was a bold attempt by the Allies to capture bridges over a number of important rivers in the Nazi-occupied Netherlands and build a bridgehead across the river Rhine.
The relief columns were held up and German resistance, in particular in Arnhem, was much stronger than anticipated. For this Grumman fitted the Hellcat’s R2800 Double Wasp engine to a much lighter and smaller airframe. This may sound weird, but if we remember how US forces, Soviet Army and even Nazis had a paranormal unit at their service, then this shouldn’t surprise us as much.
From the air it was perfectly reasonable to assume that bombers had simply flown slightly off course. Vehicle bottom left is an ERC with a demilled nonstandard turret (possibly an attempt to cobble together a mock HS 60-12 Mangouste or HS 60-20 Serval?). And yeah, the fact that a WWII-era vehicle and 2 1970s era vehicles are being kept in the same bunker and in very good condition does make it a bit suspicious lol. Prior to France leaving NATO military structure, NATO governments in exile would relocate to complexes in France and later to the Iberian Peninsula (though Spain was not officially a member at the time, their were various bilatteral agreements and NATO always intented to withdraw to Spain, member or not).


Could be vehicles put there in Reserve by the French military who forget about them afterwards (what happens a lot when the unit in question is disbanded for example). I also really like the handful of studs left exposed, creating a feel of riveted panels around the intakes.
The end of World War II could not come soon enough, and Japan’s surrender ensured that my GI grandfather did did not get shipped from Hawaii across the Pacific to participate in the invasion of the Japanese home islands. The Sopwith Camel itself is fantastic, and the addition of Snoopy as pilot just tugs at nostalgia.
In British service, in particular, they were used in a number of high-risk operations and consequently sustained heavy losses, with 12 out of 16 ships sunk. The real USS Missouri was commissioned in 1944, and served on and off of active duty until 1992. This would bring their forces to the doorstep of Germany’s industrial heartland and, in the words of Field-Marshall Montgomery, would end the war in Europe before Christmas 1944.
The allied advance was halted, thousands of Allied troops were killed, as well as thousands of German troops and numerous Dutch civilians.
This was only the second US Navy fighter with then novel features such as a fully enclosed cockpit and a retractable undercarriage, but it was outperformed by the Japanese Navy’s A6M Zero. The unit’s mission was to deceive the German Army into believing that the Allies possessed more troops and material than they actually did and, even more heroically, to draw enemy fire on themselves, allowing regular combat units to advance with fewer casualties. This could have been one of these facilites as it doesn't list on my listing of underground military complexes. Most Canadian and Australian ships survived the war and continued to serve into the fifties and sixties. She served in World War II, the Korean War, and the Gulf War, making her one of America’s most historied battleships. Airborne Troops were dropped far behind enemy lines to capture the bridges, while ground troops fought their way from Belgium through the Southern Netherlands to relieve them.
The war lasted eight more months, but much of the Southern Netherlands was liberated during the operation by soldiers from Canada, the UK, US and Poland. To counter this threat, the Wildcat was followed by the larger and more powerful F6F Hellcat.
The aircraft also incorporated a bubble canopy, greatly improving the pilot’s view to the rear. The Allies made up all sorts of stuff so the Germans wouldn’t know just when and where the invasion of the European mainland would come. Need help identifying these vehiclesThis is a discussion on Secret underground bunker discovered in France. The apst ten years, we re-discovered WW I, WWII and Cold War bunkers underneath Antwerp everybody had forgotten about; some still had ammunition piled in them. Bearcats entered service too late to see combat in WW2 and, with the advent of jet aircraft, they were transferred to the US Navy Reserve, where they received the orange fuselage stripe visible on Sydag’s model.
Atmospheric conditions in the caverns are apparently bad enough that the tank are all covered in rust by now. The sculpting for the curved hull is notoriously difficult to achieve with LEGO, and the wood planking around the details of the superstructure is quite challenging. The aircraft were retired from US service in the fifties, but their performance made them an attractive choice for air racing and Rare Bear, a much-modified Bearcat, still holds several world records for propeller-powered aircraft. Patton, of whom the Germans were terrified, complete with fake radio traffic, fake supply and personnel movements, etc. Someone needed to get rid of vehicles (placed in reserve), couldn't find a spot and dropped them there: mission accomplished.
Tribal class destroyers may not be as well-known as the larger and more glamorous cruisers and battleships that served during WW2, but they were true workhorses.
I obviously like the aircraft, but I like how it is presented even more, with part of a hangar as the backdrop and surrounded by maintenance equipment and aircraft parts, including a spare engine.
