New very interesting release from Nuts & Bolts, a “popular” vehicles for modellers from WWII. As we all know, this tank “swork horse” of the Third Reich was used in second half of WWII. Nuts & Bolts provided a lot of historic photographs; from in combat use, daily photos made by crew and war journalists, destroyed vehicles from WWII same as surviving models now days with walk around photos.

There is also organization and structure of the units, for easy understanding how they functioned. Color profiles made by historic pictures, that can help modellers in painting and also in weathering their models.

There is a section that covers components used on the vehicle found in museums and private collections with 400+ color photographs.

Once again this is another ‘must have’ book from Nuts & Bolts for anyone interested in the history or for those that are modelling this vehicle.

As with all of the Nuts & Bolts publications Very highly recommended!
