Panther tank at Axis Track Services

Recommended Posts

I don't have a gun or a cradle or shield for it either.
that would be a heck of a thing to find with only 650 vehicles made and 9 known survivors

 

the Wheatcroft collection seems to have acquired a nice Archer from Israel, maybe check with his sources and see if a gun/shield are available down there?

He has three archers in all.

I only need to measure one at the very worst borrow it.

We have surplus guns but are all achilles and I would have to remake the recoil Assy to be correct.

Cheers

I believe Goldcrest Technologies in the UK already makes new Panther torsion bars, notably for Kevin Wheatcrofts Panzer division.

they're not wasting any time on this are they? turret off, gun pulled out . I Remembered in S-2 when they visited Alex in the Czech republic, back when he had the huge 50 tons of Tiger bits. Bruce bought the Panther Gyro-compass and now we know where it might be heading. Suggests this deal with Cadman collection was a long time in the making.

if anyone has a contact for the Axis track team or the AAAM folks maybe point them to this Panther stowage box, right side. Considering just sheetmetal construction, This has to be extremely rare being shown with original war time paint on it (presumably)

looks like it's in Italy

I'm impressed you know it's a Bedford, as it appears the seller does not
