    Wooden Panzer Recognition Models

    I have seen a few threads on the forum about these but I thought I would take a moment to share my collection of Wehrmacht issue identification and recognition training models. The amount of detail that went into making these in the midst of total war has always amazed me. Other nations simply molded their recognition models out of foam rubber.

    The Tiger I, PzIV, Sherman and T34 are all the same ones shown in the book "Panzer Soldier" by Wade Krawczyk. There are a few different manufacturers represented here - Rodach, Habermass, AGE, D&Co.. I hope you enjoy them as much as I have.

        Hi,

        amazing collection you were able to assemble, congratulations !

        Were you able to list every single manufacturer and model produced ?

        If i'm right, the scale is not identifical from one model to another ?

        See You

                    Great collection.
                    I can just imagine the tedium involved with assembling the tracks for the Sherman and Churchill.

                      Thanks for the kind comments; glad you like them!

                      Carles, your StuG is great, I especially like that it has a saukopf mantlet. The commemoration on the bottom is nice touch.

                      Vince, they are all 1:20 scale, some of them have their data card present on the bottom which states the scale. Below is a list of all vehicles of the series I have observed over the years, by no means a complete list:

                      Churchill
                      T-34 1941
                      T-34 1943
                      KV-1
                      KV-85
                      StuG III
                      PZKW IV
                      Sherman
                      Panther
                      Tiger I
                      Kingtiger
                      Sdkfz 251/9 half track

                      I have only seen one photo of a heavily damaged Kingtiger. Rumor has it that a French collector owns a complete one. If anyone has photos of the kingtiger or other models that were part of the series not listed here it would be great if you could post them.

                          Missing in the list:

                          Elephant
                          SdKfz 231?
                          Hummel

                          I believe the last one is a paper KV1...but not sure

                            Nice Elephant, it appears to have cast metal tracks.
                            And I think the one being held on it's side is actually a Nashorn, that is, judging by the muzzle brake.
                            Thanks for posting, haven't seen these ones before.
