Panther ARV

A Paul Heiser command car in the background and a Panzer V Panther recovery vehicle with a Panzer IV turret. The model is based on one used on the Russian front. The turret was welded in place to give the ARV a little firepower when fetching a bogged down or damaged AFV.

A rear view of the same vehicle. I like to read about military vehicles and I always keep an eye open for special versions of real vehicles. When I saw this one, I knew I had to build it.

There should be enough photo's of this and I just picked up and moved a 6 month old copy of Military Modelling International about two nights ago.(the other Tamiya-one of- Mags)Which had the vechile in 1/35.
So actually might need Armour around the turret to be accurate.
Still get the Panther turret on PanzerIV ??? , By looking up Panther variants, etc or 1946, obscure vechiles of the Wehrmacht.
And people will beleive that it was to go into production, And myself doing some (a platoon) in my 1/72 collection 1946 stuff.

There are many combinations of different German vehicles to do on my list.
