Korean War Memorial Museum, Seoul
Korean War tanks and Ancient History
I was recently fortunate enough to go to the very impressive Korean War Memorial Museum in Seoul, which has an unsurprisingly large amount of Korean War and post-war Korean stuff in it, as well as some pretty solid ancient history, with uniforms, artifacts, armour and some impressive paintings of the Goguryeo and Joseon eras. These are the pictures I managed to take before my phone ran out of juice.
A B52, the whole damn thing in a park in the middle of the city!
F86 Sabre. One of my favourite fighters of that era, so textbook simple!

The Goguryeo Empire
Horse Armour of the Goguryeo
Goguryeo Armour and shield. Not too tough a pattern to copy
Horsemen in action
Great hat Sir!
A painting of a naval battle of the era
Warriors and sappers
Battles against the Japanese Warrior Monks. Probably.
More armour from when Korea beat the Japanese
Epic paintings... we have them for you
Must have been cold...
More armour and weapons
Now, this shield pattern is perhaps a bit beyond me in 15mm - the Santa Clause outfit is sporty though!
More impossible shield patterns. Maybe call LBMS...?
Another Great Battle
100 Arrow artillery ... honestly!
And for your baggage centrepiece...
A slightly easier horse saddle
And thats the end. I have loads more photos from museum on this site, mostly about tanks and aircraft - you can see them all here, including Tank Museums from Russia, the USA, France and the UK.
