  1. Yes, the "Ergänzungskasten" and the "Vorratskasten."
  2. Nerd factoid: the designation "Jumo" was applied to all petrol, diesel and jet engines produced by Junkers... it's a typically-German contraction of "Junkers Motor". :-)
  3. I'm sure others are wondering this too - what are you planning for the tracks?
  4. There are lots of IS3 hulks on Shikotan Island, to the north west of Hokkaido Island, Japan: https://russiatrek.org/blog/army/abandoned-tanks-on-shikotan-island/
  5. What about a Schwimmwagen? Possibly easier than a tank but with its own challenges, I should imagine.
  6. As ever, I remain immensely impressed by the levels of skill & detail in this Pz II recreation. Keep up the good work!
  7. Glad you got it sorted, Tony. And glad you found cheaper insurance... I've got a 4.0 V8 Disco 2 as well, with a manual box :-). It's a gem to drive but it's a thirsty bugger...!
  8. There are some images of the interior of a Pz. III here, I've no idea if the stowage of Gurtsäcke in the two vehicles is similar but it might give you some ideas: http://www.wehrmacht-awards.com/forums/showthread.php?t=587907
  9. Yep, see below - although I'm sure you'll have already seen them yourself: Description of Panzer Magnetlampe: https://www.tapatalk.com/groups/missinglynx/magnetlampe-in-panzers-t53887.html Reference to Magnetlampe storage tin: https://www.shapeways.com/product/XMN8A8LW6/1-16th-generic-interior-panzer-parts-1 I also found another description of the Magnetlampe that confirms the one in the first link but I can't find that page again, sorry.
  10. From what I can gather, the lamp is stored inside that canister in the picture. Here's a link to an auction on German eBay for a WW2-era magnetic vehicle inspection lamp - I've no idea if it's the right one for the Panzer 2, but it does have a magnetic base and it does match the various descriptions I've found on the Internet. https://www.ebay.de/itm/392281309997
  11. This thread is the reason I signed up to the forum - fantastic work, mate.
