Another one out of dust... a unique sdkfz 6

Post by mario33 »

I believe there is only a handful of them around the world (5). The same team that restored Stug is now focusing on sdkfz 6.

Sometimes, if you search the nearest mud pit, you may find something interesting.

It may look as unimpressive pile of rubble at first...

Image

...but when you clean it...

Image

and put some work to that, you my find it starts to look better :)

Dont forget, there are also PanzerIV and Sherman Firefly in the restauration works now :)

Just checked, there are 4 of them left. this one under works is 5th.

Only one of them is fully restored in Auto + Technik Museum, Sinsheim in Germany. the other three, in various stages of completeness are:
-almost complete, in private collection, in Düsseldorf, in Germany;
-that one shown on pictures in Gdansk, in Poland
-one in US.

Sdkfz 6 rebuilt in Poland

Post by mario33 »

From the same team that saved StuGIV, after mere year of work, this fantastic vehicle is now completely rebuilt. You just cant believe it if you see what pile of rusty rubble it once was...

And it runs smoothly :)
