Little surprise for Walter (remember the Becker collection?)
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.

Hi P-O

That's a big surprise ! Thanks for showing.
Do you know if it is on loan or is the museum the new owner ?
last week I was able to have a look at some recent pictures from the Becker storage and the Panzer IV was indeed not in it

the tank is on loan. I asked directly to Patrick Nerrant, who owns the other vehicles, and that's what he told me. Becker will visit the museum soon.

Ok thanks !
I recognized the Dragon Wagon as Patrick's. But did not know he had that much other vehicles.

Do you have a photo of the VW82 Kübelwagen that can be seen to the right?
If so, can you show it here.

Rafal,

here there are far better pictures of the same vehicle. It is in the same condition in the museum, the owner didn't add anything since my visit in 2012 :
