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.

Massimo,
I'm currently seriously thinking about the planned trip to Italy. Would you be able to join for a visit of the musuems next to Rome during the first week or week-end of September? (i.e. between September 1st and September 9)?


That's too early for me. I took holidays in mid August already. I am afraid I wouldn't be possible for me in September... How about early October?

Well Massimo made the trip to the Netherlands for the Overloon musuem
Walter picked him up at the train station and I joined at Overloon.

Results
- the weather was rather nice
- Massimo didin't take as much photos as he expected;
- however he had more fun taking the photo's he has now
- He didn't use all the camera's he took along (he used only 2 out of 3 .. or did he bring 4 );
- His camera on a pole system works very well

- Walter didn't take any photo's, however some how managed to get a lot of photo's
- he was good company

- I learned a lot about operating my camera Mr. Green
- I took more photo's then expected
- I need to get a remote control for my compact camera, the pole is allready there


To be short:
We had a very good and enjoyful day

Michel

Thanks Michel, most likely it's not 100% complete (softskins are missing), but looks pretty close.
It's more than enough for my needs anyway. I just need an idea to define my priorities and plan the visit.

Thanks again

Massimo

I've posted some more on this forum: www.weaponsofwwii.com/...p;start=30
and complete gallery has been posted once on militaryphotos forums, unfortunately it has disappeared after server crash on MP.net.

I've also made this rough list of vehicles for Lesany Museum wiki page: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/...e%C5%A1any


Great, thanks! I can see how the general display layout hasn't changed that much compared to 14 years ago. And the mythical pink IS-2 is still there Laughing
The list on Wikipedia is especially helpful for me.



- Adamicz

- Massimo_Foti
- Is there any vehicles inside Žižkov Museum?


Beside the T-34/85 in front of the museum, no. Well, not at the moment as on 22nd July, the Praga LTP/Tanque 39 should be shipped from Peru to Europe and them moved to Prague Museum in Žizkov where it will be displayed for some time and then moved to Lesany Museum for restoration.


Maybe I will be lucky and catch the Tanque 39 before restoration...

Thanks again

Massimo

When you're in Lešany. What day.


I have 14th, 15th and 16th August available. I was thinking about spending two of these days in Lešany, one in Kbely.

I haven't yet put together a list for Lesany, but in putting together the list for Jordan (which exchanged vehicles with Lesany) Adamicz, on this forum, pointed me at his Flickr album:

www.flickr.com/photos/...798660411/


As Massimo said, the collection is much bigger than what I've posted on my flickr page. Yet I have a picture of pretty much all the vehicles displayed indoor last year.

I've posted some more on this forum: www.weaponsofwwii.com/...p;start=30

and complete gallery has been posted once on militaryphotos forums, unfortunately it has disappeared after server crash on MP.net.

I've also made this rough list of vehicles for Lesany Museum wiki page: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/...e%C5%A1any

but not all the vehicles mentioned are actually displayed, as some of them were moved to, or still are in depository... like M4A3 Sherman for example. And that reminds me, Massimo, if you're going to visit Lesany in late August, you may not find some of the vehicles as they might be just checked right before their appearance in the forthcoming 10th Tank Day. At least that's my experience from the last August Smile

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

At the beginning of the year my main goal was to visit Munster. Things went in a different direction and, after Amsterdam in early July, I will be in Prague in August. I've been there many years ago, I love the city (just as I love Vienna and Munich). I plan to spend at least two days in Lesany and visit Kbely too. I have a few questions here:

- Do we have a list of vehicles from Lesany?

- Is any Czech friend willing to meet over there?

- Is there any vehicles inside Žižkov Museum?

- Any special request for pictures?

Usually I have 2 cameras, sometimes 3 Laughing


I just broke my wallet and got a new camera. I'll try to get familiar with it within the next few weeks. Still, I am sure I will not feel 100% comfortable with it in such a small amount of time. That means I'll carry the old one as a back-up Laughing
All in all, two big reflex beasts and a compact camera (for "pole" shots). The real challenge would be to fit everything inside a backpack, without breaking EasyJet's restrictions on hand-baggage Shocked
