WW2 German Military Vehicle Groups or Forums...

Recommended Posts

Given the rarity now of WW2 German military vehicles, artillery and their evocative nature, I just wanted to ask if anyone knew of a group or forum for WW2 German vehicle owners/enthusiasts in mind?

 

I ask as I do not know of a group or forum specifically for owners/enthusiasts of WW2 German artillery, mortars, motorcylces, softskin or tracked vehicles can meet to ask technical questions, share and exchange photos or buy/sell spares? I know that I am posting on the German Vehicle forum, but it has 174 threads in comparrison to the British Vehicle for having 2,264...

 

This has become apparent as I start a restoration of a '43 Stoewer Typ 40 and am looking for a number of parts but am at a loss of who to contact.

Try http://www.vw166.com/ ; it is mainly for Kubels, Schwimmers & Kettenkrads, but might still be helpful for you and has a classifieds-section.

 

Also, the 'Achtung Panzer'-section of the Wehrmacht-Awards board has a lot of knowledge on vehicles.

 

I hope that helps!

 

Greetz ;)

Thanks David, I know Bart Lemmens and am registered on his site (in fact if it wasn't for Bart I wouldn't have my Schwimmwagen).

 

I also (believe) I'm registered on the the Wehrmacht-Awards board and will investigate the 'Achtung Panzer'-section.

 

What I was trying to articulate in the thread was that it would great to have a centralised forum where WW2 German vehicle specialists can be identified and saught, likewise with people with parts for sale.

 

Warmest regards,

 

Martin

I don't know of any centralized forum for WW2 German vehicles other than Bart Lemmens' site, just bits & pieces on that subject on other forums. :undecided:

 

You could try to set one up yourself with phpBB freeware. :angel:

Hi There, we are a German Military owners group based in the Herts/Beds area.

 

We are always looking out for fellow German vehicle owners to join our ranks, would be great to hear from you!

Why does your link go to an expired ebay book auction and not to your group?

Well done on the photoshoot.

If nature gives snow you can complain or go out and play.

Hi,

 

I have a forum dedicated to the Steyr 1500 ( follow link from http://www.steyr1500.com ). Although the aforementioned vehicle was its main purpose, we also have amongst our 200 subscribers owners of many other German MV's. It is always worth posting a question.

 

Best

 

David
