The 'War Horse' Tank
The Tank Museum has obtained the tank used in Steven Spielberg's new World
War One blockbuster Warhorse.
The fully operational replica of a British Mk IV tank is set to go on
display when the film is released next week, and will also be used in the
Dorset based Museum's tank displays later in the year.
The full sized replica was based on the Museum's own Mark IV, which was
built in 1917. OSCAR award-wining special effects company Neil Corbould
Special Effects LTD, whose credits include Saving Private Ryan and
Gladiator, visited The Tank Museum in 2010 to take measurements from the
vehicle and copy original documents related to the MK IV tank held in the

Starting the 1909 Blitzen-Benz, UNEDITED, @ Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance
The Blitzen-Benz was purpose built to do just one thing, to break speed
records (not racing), and it did repeatedly from 1909 through 1911.
(Edited version: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ga2HtUHzUuw )
Its speed of 228.1km/h (141.73mph) on April 23rd, 1911, driven by Bob
Burman at Daytona Beach, stood as a record until 1919. Twice the speed of
the fastest airplane, (12 April, 1911, Alfred Leblanc @
69.442mph/111.801kph in a Blériot Blériot) and even shattering the record
speed of 210km/h set by a locomotive in 1903.
This record was not even officially broken in an airplane until 1920!
Of the six originally built, this is one of only two that exist today, and
is displayed at the Mercedes-Benz Museum in Stuttgart, Germany.
While the extended and nuanced effort required to start the Blitzen-Benz on
a cool coastal morning can try the patience of some viewers, its historical
significance and ground-breaking engineering brilliance still place it
amongst the greatest motor-vehicle achievements of all time, and the dozens
witnessing this effort felt it was one of the highlights of many great
moments at Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance 2011.
Here's a great collection of vintage and modern images of the Blitzen-Benz
and other historic speed record contenders:
displacement 21500 cc / 1312.0 in³

FW190 Engine startup, fly and taxing at Breitscheid Airshow 2010.
This FW190 is a 1:1 new build replica (almost 98% like the original
aircraft, exept the engine).
The parts came from "Flugwerk" as a kit and "Meier Motors" put it together
and made it airworthy.
These new FW190 replicas were sold with a Russian/Chinese ASh-82 14 cyl.
radial engine, which was a good match for the rare BMW801 14 cyl. radial
engines at a much lower cost. The replicas were designed with a new 3-blade
prop, but one of the first examples crashed from a failure in the electric
prop control. The 4-blade was a matched prop from the Tu-2 that was
substituted while the problem with the new 3-blade was fixed. The 3-blade
prop is now back in use.
This aircraft is now flying in the USA.
