HI,
sorry I explained myself badly,
I meant that I could not find a site / forum,
to get information to visit the event,
looking with google Hausen, many come out between Switzerland and Germany,
in Switzerland or in Bavaria in 2 or 3 hours by car I could get there.
I live in Parma, Emilia Romagna,Italy.
thank you
Marco

Hi Marco
This should be the google map result

https://www.google.dk/maps/place/Hausen ... f2a69d6d59

There is more information on a german forum, but I guess that Armortek will give more information later when more details are available
cheers

Hi Marco,

Steen's map is correct!
The location is Hausen am Bach, near Rot am See and Rothenburg ob der Tauber in the south of Germany.
This is the first time Armortek will attend the event. There is no website for the Panzertreffen, but in the previous years it has attracted several hundred of visitors and the majority of tanks on display and in action are 1:6th scale. There are several youtube videos of the Hausen Am Bach Panzertreffen events. If you do decide to join in, I can provide you with details of hotels in the nearby area.

Wishing you a nice weekend,
Monique

Well, the annual tank meeting in Hausen am Bach near Rothenburg ob der Tauber in Germany is implemented by a private citizen named Reinhold Müller who formerly was staff sergeant and tank group commander in the german army. Welcome are all guys with (and without :wink: ) tanks and military vehicle models in 1/8, 1/6 and 1/4 scale of all manufacturers. The models should be able to move and absolve a driving circuit of about 1.000 metres over streets and grassland with some gradients. The highlight and finish of the meeting is a 'tank battle' (a show driving with pyrotechnical effects like smoke and 'mines' buried in the ground; harmless for models and spectators).

Some hints about Hausen tank meeting you may find in the german forums 'Bigtanks Forum', 'RC-Panzer' and 'RC-Panzerketten-Forum' (all in german language), some videos are available in Youtube: e.g.:

https://www.youtube.com/results?search_ ... +bach+2016

and following.

Here some more impressions:

Hi Monique,

the first and the last pic partially show the indoor possibilities for static displaying of kits and parts. The stage is also used for temporarily sheding vehicles (rain), if no cover is available.
kind regards
Gerhard

Hi All,
thank you all for the precious information,
I'm part of a group of Big scale 1/6 e 1/4 modelers,
I talked about it in the group and would like to take a "trip"
I do not think we can bring the tanks,
we would like to meet other groups with our same passion.
information about the hotels in the area is very welcome,
thanks
Marco

Thanks Monique,
I will soon be attending a model exhibition,
in which I meet with the group,
we'll discuss it a bit and see if we can organize ourselves,
unfortunately we are very scattered around Italy,
and it is not easy to meet us,
for the moment we have discussed it on a chat and in several are interested.
Marco

Hi Marco,

it would be a great thing to meet you at Hausen; perhaps with tanks! In Germany we also are scattered around, but we hold contact in a german forum and meet once a year in Hausen and at some other (smaller) meetings in Germany.
kind regards
Gerhard
