Reserve road wheel on rear side - how was it attached

Post by Steen Vøler » Sun Jul 07, 2013 4:37 pm

hi all

as I have a spare roadwheel for my JagdPanther I was thinking of placing it on the back of the rear side.

How was it fastened on the real panthers? Have seen some ww2 pictures of panthers / jagdpanthers with the roadwheel placed there

Steen, a while back there were several postings on this and as I recall, the road wheel was mounted with three bolts. That's how I did mine on the turret rear of my late model Panther.
