Our plans and trips to military museums
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. The emphasis has always been on sharing information and communicating with other members of similar interests; e.g. German armor, Japanese AFVs, or whatever.

I maybe have a chance to visit Saumur in July.
One I want to visit is the new museum in Dresden, but the grand opening is for next year.

Michel


This really pi$$es me off. I was condemned to go to Dresden for many years to the annual autoimmune congress at the Technical University Dresden and apart from incredible economic development and improvement in the infrastructure of the city over twelve years, all I ever got to see was the Auto museum and some nice motorcycle and Trabant ( Laughing ) collections.

Did have lot of fun over at the area around the Hilton on the Elbe, though.

Is someone planing to visit:

M40 GMC – Charleston, AR (USA)
M40 GMC – Mena, AR (USA)

"vagabond" maybe you ? because you are travelling a lot Smile



Bialy-r -
It's doubtful that I'll be anywhere near those AR locations in the near future - sorry! Sad
If I do get anywhere near, I'll let you know.

Cheers!

EasyJet doesn't offers a Milano-Sofia direct fly anymore. Now I am not sure I will go to Sofia this summer

I may go to Belgrade instead.
I'll wait for Rafal's report on Sofia's Museum and consider it again for 2012

I am refining my schedule for the upcoming months.

SWITZERLAND

- Full's Museum will open tomorrow. I will visit it at least once this year. On July 2-3 they run their annual event, I plan to be there too

- June 18 event at Forte Mondascia. It's a very small one, but it's just 30 min from my home

- June 25 event in Kradolf. Not that big, but nice

- I've just got a new lens and would love to try it out at Thun's Panzermuseum (outdoor vehicles only). I hope to go in June

- Should get the opportunity to visit SHP in Thun too, and check what they are doing on the Vickers 34. But I need to match the schedule with a busy friend

EUROPE

- Looks like I will be in Belgrade in early September

- I still have some hope for Munster in June, but my work schedule most likely will prevent me to go Sad

- Maybe a surprise visit to a cool collection in France

I'll be going to Bovington and IWM Duxford end of June, Parola in Finland in July. Usually hit Duxford and Parola every 2 yrs (friends in Duxford and Family in Finland) but haven't been back to Bovington in +10 years.

My first trip at Sinsheim was a disaster from a photography standpoint. Snow outdoor and wrong white-balance due to tricky incandescent lights indoor... I am positive next one will be better Smile

I took nearly 800 pictures in 2 days and filled a 2 Gigabytes memory card, so all this has to be sorted out and it will take some time..
