Panzer Jgdpz 38 (t) Hetzer
Note the unique, factory-applied camouflage of red brown, tan, and grey green used only on Hetzers. The troopers around it looks like British servicemen and not Germans.

New York artist Dash Snow dies of heroin overdose, aged 27

(remember to check out the comments, really great reading)

A larger-than-life fairy tale about unschooled raw talent coupled with hedonism, insanity and (extremely) rich parents, or just more hype?..

you decide; check out his work, read all about him,

More on Snow, turns out one of his inspirations was Danish photographer Jacob Holdt's American Pictures and he liked dancing to the music of Suicide before going to parties...

Panzer Sturmtiger
I went and visited the Deutsches Panzermuseum, which has a Sturmtiger on display and since only two have survived until today (out of eighteen made) this is quite a rarity.
They have an excellent collection of German tanks and AFV's at the museum, but I recommend going there by car since Munster, were it's located, is a bit out of the way (you can go by train also, which was what I did)

BTW: If going, don't mix Munster up with Münster which is a completely different place, it's Munster (Örtze) you'll be looking for.

Panzer Pzkpfw IV, Ausf C,D
Serving with the Africa korps, a somewhat strange hybrid Panzer IV that has most of the mid-production features, but seems to lack the machine gun mount in the front armour plate. You can just make out the Africa korps symbol on the side of the upper hull and on the front armour plate - both applied in reverse...
