Panzer iii MP-Klappe

Post by Tim Page » Mon Oct 23, 2017 2:02 pm

Hi all, trying to find some detailed pix and or a plan showing the MP-Klappe unit fitted to a Panzer iii ausf.J instead of the hull mg.
These were fitted to the PanzerBefehlswagen III Ausf.J that i am considering.
I have a few pix in which i can see a small vertically aligned oval hole in the armour behind the vorpanzer plate.

It would be nice to model this unique detail if i can find some info.

Any help apprciated.

Cheers
Tim

Hi all, So far no info from a number of sources, so i tried a change of tack and looked at build photos online of the excellent Dragon 1/35 Pz.Bef.Wg.III Ausf.J.
After a few mins, i found exactly what i was looking for. Some dimensions would help, but i should be OK from this photo.
