Korean War Museum

Tank M36

I was lucky to get on a project to South Korea in June 2013.  Most of the trip was at Kunsan Airbase which is in BFE South Korea.  However, we did get one day in Seoul and I was able to see the Korean War Museum.  Most of the photos below are shots from just outside the museum.  I have many more from the inside, but they just arent as cool as the tanks outside!!

Given the models already available to Flames of War and what was used in the Korean War, it would be a logical step to produce a book on the Korean War!!

Lastly, dinner in Seoul.  Korean BBQ (sirloin and beef rib).  Add in a little soju which is Korean alcohol that tastes a little like vodka and is great with a packet of Koolaid to liven things up!!  The stuff sneaks up on you.  We had three bottles and I was feeling pretty darn good 🙂
