Published: June 8, 2016

The Tank Museum, located in Dorset, South West England, has entered the Guinness World Records with the largest collection of scale model tanks.

A total of 81 1:6 scale tanks were brought together at the museum’s annual model exhibition TankMOD in October 2015. Guinness now recognizes this as the world's largest gathering of it kind.

Model manufacturer Armortek arranged the event. There, model tanks lined up next to their life-sized equivalents. Models represented eras ranging from World War I to Cold War tanks.

The museum is planning another event of the same kind for Oct. 8, 2016.
