  1. And another Ferdinand Elefant in 653 in Italy with what appears to be a similar vertical stripe... Oddly, you don't see the stripes on Elefants in 653 later in Germany in 1945... http://www.thirdreichruins.com/spjabt653.htm?fbclid=IwAR3A1MeCGyLVV7WsMjimEV-rESlpHHs7eTTc6e7k77XvXgs2GpyU_Bz_ErA Perhaps @Das Abteilung can help?
  2. Beautiful clean work, detail and weathering. Everything looks right!
  3. Work of art! Simply beautiful and refreshing. I would also like to know how you did the base and details!
  4. Sweet! I do prefer the cleaner, representative style, and that's what it is, a style. Leave the mud and weeds for dioramas, I think that's where it belongs, at least that's my preference. I think they had a disagreement in that last photo... Very nice models and modulation! I think you have the same IKEA Billy shelves as I use for my displays and books, might pay to get some glass doors to keep the dust off...
  5. For what it's worth, this Panther G seems to have the pie slices and the rectangular 'slides', which I think were only fitted on the right hand side.... See also https://www.track-link.com/forums/site_blogs/41118/flat
  6. Perhaps they are cover plates? Can you post a photo of what you have? Have you seen this? https://www.tapatalk.com/groups/missinglynx/panther-g-kampfraumheizung-t321867.html
  7. No idea, but the model looks interesting...which one is it?
  8. Very nice detail indeed. Hard plastic is a plus. There is a nice Cruiser Mk. I from their small range which build very well, one made on this forum here.
  9. I believe it is a pennant, indicating the formation or a command pennant.
  10. https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/133712469103?hash=item1f21e25c6f:g:q~0AAOSwcW9gZ1UC
  11. Here is another Ferdinand Elefant from 653 which has a dark stripe in the same dimensions in the same location: https://www.worldwarphotos.info/gallery/germany/tanks-2-3/elefant_ferdinand/ferdinand-elefant-panzerjager-abteilung-653-2/ And another with what looks like a dark strip also from 653: https://www.worldwarphotos.info/gallery/germany/tanks-2-3/elefant_ferdinand/elefant-schwere-panzerjager-abteilung-653-6/ I'm thinking whether the color of the stripe may signify company or a command vehicle?
  12. I think this is the picture of Elefant 113 and the stripe. It looks like the line is faded or worn over the zimmerit, so it might have been there for a while before being knocked out.
  13. There are several 6447 on eBay. This one is going at a reasonable price (£46.65 + free worldwide) if you don't mind buying from China: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/293138653629?epid=1400203513&hash=item44406ce1bd:g:PDQAAOSwADldGjiq
  14. I used to help manage engineer stores in the Australian Army many years ago. It looks like an army ~10Kw generator, possibly to power plant equipment. You may do better asking on some dedicated forums, possibly https://www.powerequipmentforum.com/forums/generator-forum.9/ Where is the generator located?
