About Prime Portal
Prime portal is a free web site set up as a collecting point for military photos
and modelers reference from around the world. The goal of the site is to
create the largest collection of Military and Aviation photos on the net.
Back in 2001, I found an M60A3 on static display and shot my first walk around.
I found that there was a lot of interest in these pictures while talking with
modelers in various forums. On October 26th, 2001 I set up Prime Portal as
a way to make these photos available to the modeling community. There were
requests for more detail on the tank, so I went back and shot a second, more
detailed, walk around and posted that one as well. After that, I put up a
walk around of LAWs Rocket and a WWII 3" Anti-tank Gun.
The site sat idle for
a while until other people started asking about adding photos. From there,
the site exploded! Currently there are over 289 contributors from 40
countries and over 230,000 photos (stats as of Feb 2011) and the new stuff just
keeps on coming!
As the site keeps growing servers will continue to be added to support the
additional demand. Currently this site runs on five different servers.
New features will be added as the demand and desires of the users evolve.

photos or donate financially to the website.
