Looking for pics of the Australian Armour and Artillery mus.
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.

No updates about the grand opening either on FaceBook or their website which I find curious. Its drip feed of information and vague fuzzy photos

200 patrons on their first day of operation isn't inspiring either, given the large sums of money in the building alone.

Apparently some resentment in the local community as well (its close to a local school)

The AC4 is actually a AC1 Hull and a AC2 turret with a 17pdr added recently - formerly at the Melbourne Tank Museum - however this has been confused somewhat by comments attributed to them that its an original hull restored

the Panzer 38(t) is described as "acquired in Norway and was restored in the United Kingdom using parts sourced from military target ranges, scrap yards, collector and battle damaged vehicles"

Any guess?

I think the Hetzer Axis Track Services is now restoring might also be for this museum?
