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.

good idea, thanks. Anyway I've tried to plan the dates and locations for visits, but I feel like I will have more time than required, so I may do some changes as circumstances allow.

Guess I should have posted my question about the Greek Tank Museum here. Anyway, another museum question - is there still a 1st AD Museum in Baumholder? Internet gives the impression it moved to the States? Anything in Baumholder still?

Thanks,
Jim

I have all the booking finalized, planes, hotels and Carrousel.
I will arrive in Saumur on Wednesday evening, spent Thursday at the Museum, then Friday and Saturday afternoon I will attend the Carrousel.
Still not sure about Friday and Saturday morning, either I will walk around trying to sneak some picture or I will spend a few hours inside the Museum.

No need to say I would love to meet any fellow enthusiast over there.

Massimo

PS P-O, if we will meet food and beverage are on me Smile

for instance, if you come to the museum the day before the show, you may see some vehicles being loaded on trucks...

In my opinion, the most interesting things are that :
-the tanks running at the Carrousel can be photographed in the open air with natural light
-you can see them from nearly all the angles
-you can see vehicles that are usually stored in areas forbidden to the public.


I saw pictures taken during the show, inside the "arena" and I will bring telephoto lenses for the job. But what before and after that, are there opportunity to see the vehicles outside the show's time frame?

just have a look and share the list of vehicles that will take part to the show, I will tell you which ones come from the museum and which ones come from the reserves.

Post subject: Re: Our plans and trips to military museums

well, most of the tanks that run during the Carrousel come from the reserves (Sherman tanks, all the post-1945 vehicles, B1 bis, Renault FTs, Panther). I'd say that only the Valentine, Tiger II, Panzer II and Luchs come from the museum's displays. I'm not sure that the museum is so empty, even during the carrousel.

In my opinion, the most interesting things are that :
-the tanks running at the Carrousel can be photographed in the open air with natural light
-you can see them from nearly all the angles
-you can see vehicles that are usually stored in areas forbidden to the public.

Current plan is to fly to Paris, spend a 2-3 days there, then take the train to Saumur, watch the Carrousel (both days) and travel back home on Sunday.

I wonder about Saumur's Museum during those days, there should be some empty spots among the display, potentially opening good photographic opportunities. Still I wonder how many people would visit the Museum the day before the event.

P-O, you watched a Carrousel before, right? Is there the opportunity to take interesting pictures during the time before the show?
In other words, on Friday and Saturday morning, would it be better to hang around the show area or is better to visit the Museum instead?
