I've now added the possibility to add a link to a museum's official website. Multiple links for vehicles is still on the wish list, as it's a bit more complicated.

Some more eye candy: A Google Map, with links from the museum markers to the museum vehicle list: http://maps.google.com/maps/ms?hl=en&ie ... 1c2e25da9c

Dear group,

I have a number of pictures of preserved AFV's that i don't see in the database.

Corcerning:

Egypt, Cairo, Citadel, open air museum/monument: I took some quick pictures of the tanks displayed there (since i had two very tired and nagging travel companions that didn't want to see tanks at all :D :( ) of the following tanks:

US M4, unknown model, modified with dozer blade
US M4 modified post war with AMX 13 turret.
JS3
T34-85

France,

An early British cruiser (under a camouflage net unfortunately). This tank is in a private collection attached to a privately owned museum, is it allowed to disclose the location ?

France: Musée Mémorial de la Ligne Maginot du Rhin :

US M4, i think with a 76 mm
US Half track with quad .50 mount
US M8 Greyhound

France, Cernay (Alsace), Monument,

US Half track

France, Fort de Fermont (Alsace)

I don't have pictures of these:

Casco of a Renault TSF: this was buried as an observation post for the Maginot line and retrieved by the association running the museum of the fortress.

Turret of a Renault FT, MG armed.



Belgium, Antwerp, Monument

Cromwell (unknown subtype)

As you can see i'm not a huge specialist for these vehicles, but i guess you guys can identify them better. Since i don't have all the information and most of the pictures were taken a rather long time ago, is it okay that i post links to for example pics that i put on photobucket, and we can then see how to enter them according to the guidelines of this forum ?

many thanks,

Aglooka

Thank you for your additions! It'd be great if you could add a list of links to photobucket to your post, or add a new post with the links. We shouldn't have much trouble sorting out the type of each vehicle and make entries for each vehicle, though it'd be great if you could provide any details about the conditions of each vehicle.

Hi folks,

I'm new to this forum, this is my first post :mrgreen:

If required I could help with vehicle's located in The Netherlands, most of the known AFV's are already collected

http://the.shadock.free.fr/Netherlands_AFVs.pdf

Adding other vehicle's, soft-skin, will be a new challenge

Yes please! Any information you have would be very helpful. :)

We already have a loose understanding with Pierre-Olivier, we use his lists and inform him of anything else we find ;)

okay, no problem

first a question, I'm trying to figure out how the build-up of all links is

If you have a vehicle, you post it in the main thread of the "preserved Military Registry Project"
Then the admin will create a link to the corresponding thread, for the Netherlands it would be: "Location index", then "Vehicles in the Netherlands"

So if I was planning to add, for example, the Overloon museum that would be +100 different posts :?:

Yes, a post per vehicle, then somebody (usually me!) would link them into the other areas. The rationale for that is so information can be added about individual vehicles (see vehicle 913, Cobra King, for a great example)
For large collections like Overloon, you could simply post (or send me) a list, along with any additional info and I can make all the posts. Any other info, pictures etc you can then add on later.

I have some info on Overloon in my 'to do' pile, so would appreciate any input!

Photo's will also be no problem

How essential is picturesize actual?
I know it's a question of server space, but wouldn't it be better even to get big pictures than not to get them at all?
In case of posters can't manage to downsize a photo it would be possible for the moderator to do this afterwards.
In the end is one big photo IMO not worse than several small (from a number of angles), hence I can't se how the forum is ready to risk several pictures never being posted :-|
By the way: IMO should the history of this discussion be mirrored to show latest posting first.
