They had another much better running Stug which the current one replaced on display probably 10 to 20 years ago.  That then went into what was at the time a far from ideal storage building in which it started to deteriorate.   Just going from memory which others can correct me on they were then criticized as a registered museum for allowing it to deterioate and I believe it eas lent out to another Museum.   Others can confirm how accurate my memory is.
