A VERY interesting comparison!

Customer of mine found this on YT, I have not seen it before and found it very interesting.


Hardly surprising the result, but nice to see some WW2 Tanks being given the beans!

Nice find :D

I'm surprised at how much the Panther's tracks flap around at speed, though I guess it's not surprising with no return rollers to control it.

VERY interesting!

Mark thanks for posting this, new to me.
That Panther is in Munster today in running condition but with a diesel engine.
We gave her as a gift to the new West German nation in the early 1960-ties

Somehow someone switched the position on the exhaust pipes and placed the lhs ones with the 2 cooling pipes on the rhs.
The video shows that the exhausts was as on all Panther Ausf A and this is the first fotage I have seen showing the rear on that Panther, very nice as that exhaust enigma has been a gem for me.
Hope the Munster guys will correct that error as it look sooo wrong.

The Firefly and Churchill is still here in Sweden preserved and at least the Firefly is on display at our national tank museum.

Kind regards
1/6th T34-85, 1/8th Panther Ausf A #424, 1/8th T34-85, 1/6th Hetzer kit, 1/6th Panther G kit, 1/6th Tiger1 Late kit and a 1/6th Panzer IV kit
