'The serpent & the warrior'
The Saracen (not in opposition to the above Templar!)
very interesting mix of vehicle subjects

Model or real vehicle sometimes hard to tell from a picture!
Definitely the real thing the museums superb Jaguar with hatches and cockpit open for the day

The rare Meteor TT20 painted to represent a NF11 of 85 Squadron
