Patton Museum 60th Anniversary display...
The AFV ASSOCIATION was formed in 1964 to support the thoughts and research of all those interested in Armored Fighting Vehicles and related topics, such as AFV drawings.

Jeff

The posters are pretty large, if they are the same size that is currently displayed at the gift shop, unless you want somethig the size of the 'fathead' wall posters.....

Speaking of which, for you Abrams fans who have a sizeable wall space that needs something....

If that has been a Sherman I would have already owned it. Laughing

Its why 'we' let you keep coming back......ha ha ha.


Oh, that's why. I thought it was because I was a big enough fool to take on the Panzer IV as my project. I know it's not because of my charming personality. Laughing

I spoke with the Gift Shop manager today. There are plenty of posters, and plans are to have them available during the event.

BTW Jeff, saw your package just waiting for the fedex guy, its 'in the mail'.

I bet there's a niche market for M60's as well. Wink

The Panther 'G' is in Richardson MP.

SITREP: Friday Night

As of right now, on display is

German WWII: PAK 38, PAK 40, PAK 43, DEMAG, Schwimmwagen, Kubelwagen, Hetzer (G13), Sd Kfz 223, Sd Kfz 234/4, Kettenrad, Stuh 42

US: 8in Howitzer(Towed), M8 Armored Car, M4A3E8, M4A1, M4(105), M4A2, 2x M5 Stuart, M3 HT, M5 HT, M113 ACAV, M551, M10 TD

There are more than 10-15 additional vehicles from private / group participants, so there will be plenty of personnel and vehicle movement over the next two days.

I got too involved and don't have any photos, will have some tomorrow.

Regards
Don

Pretty cool weekend as we just returned! Smile I was going to attend both days but I did manage to fill up all my cards and got lots of sun doing it so one day was enough ... well enough for the wife that is.

I'll try to post a few pics and I ran some video, mainly of the Shermans firing up where they were parked. I didn't get there in time for the Stuarts but the Shermans made up for it! Razz

Jeff, wasn't that a great show? I did get the Stuarts and the Shermans moving out on Sat. Bad news is that when I got up to the battle viewing area I was aced out of decent spots for video. I did it over again on Sun and it looks better.

Did you get a good shot of the P51 on Saturday? I kept missing him. He wasn't there on Sunday.

I shot a few hundred photos on Fri-Sat-Sun. I'm sitting here trying to get the captions labelled and culling duplicates.

WOW what a weekend!
