Jan Zdiarsky, Ph.D, who is one of the team at Eduard also runs the Museum of Air Battle over the Ore Mountains in the Czech Republic, who are holding a crowdfunding project with the aim to raise funds for their 20th anniversary of the museum.
Details on how to support this museum, if you wish, on keeping history alive is shown below.
Jan Zdiarsky, Ph.D. of Eduard is the founder and director/volunteer of the Museum of Air Battle over the Ore Mountains on September 11th, 1944. On that day my hometown Kovarska in Czech Republic was a center of a great aerial battle between 8th USAAF and Luftwaffe. Some 60 planes were shot down in this combat.
On research of this event I am already working some 32 years. In 1997 we opened a museum dedicated to that event. So now we have 20th anniversary of the museum. For that occasion we started a crowdfunding project on Czech portal HitHit, with deal to gather some 50 000 CZK (ca 2 000 USD) for the event celebrating the anniversary. There are interesting rewards for contributors, some of them are focused to people who can´t come to the event, but their rewards can be sent by post.
There left two weeks before the project close and actually we have gathered 45%.
Our Museum is for many years a good partner to Eduard (you may remember some special editions of Royal Classes of Fw 190A-8/R2 1/48 and 1/72, also as the Bf 109G-6 in 1/48 with piece from „our“ air battle, etc. and the subject is of course very close to interest of your readers and websites + facebook visitors.
