DETAILING (lettering, numbering) PARTS

Post by Michael Röder » Tue Feb 12, 2019 2:47 pm

Hello!

I would like to perform details on some parts of my StuG III.

I search pictures/photos of lettering/numbering/markings of the Panzer III or StuG III (suspension parts, drivesprockets, idlers, hooks etc).

I also want to detail equipment, like hooks (c-/s-hooks), jacks etc. .

Maybe someone has pictures of vehicles and equipment displayed in museums. Unfortunately, I do not have a suitable museum near me. I would also like to receive recommendations on websites and corresponding literature.

Thank you in advance for your help.

Best regards

Michael

Google is your friend. I've also put a lot of Pz III references and detailed photos onto my Pz III thread here:

The Panzer Tracts series has monographs on the Pz III Ausfuhrungen and the Stug III here:

https://www.panzertracts.com

They are really the definitive source for detailing a Stug.

You might also try the Trojca series. The Pz III edition had lots of original manufacturing drawings, which I used but I don't know if the Stug III edition has the same:

https://www.amazon.co.uk/Stug-III-IV-At ... a+stug+III

All of the books above are out of print and you'll have to search to find them and try to find copies at a reasonable price. The Trojca Pz III book is now selling for a ridiculous £160.

Good luck.

Stephen

Hello Stephen!

Thank you for your recommendations.

I have some books about PZ III und StuG, but there
are pictures and photos with readable lettering or numbering.
I spend a lot of time with Google too.

I think the most helpful would be pictures of museum or collector vehicles.

Your build thread is very helpful too.

Greetings from Germany

Michael
