Bergepanther Part I
A Bergepanther was a German Panther tank converted to be a recovery vehicle for other vehicles that broke or bogged down.
The whole time I've been working on this thing I kept thinking how cool it would be to have pulleys and chains. I know I had seen others do this to their Bergepanthers. Doing a quick search on the FoW forum I found 2 in particular that were very good.
One by Tommy_monaghan. His had pulleys on it, and I couldn't fathom where he would get pulleys that small. After reading through the post for a bit, sure enough someone asked him where he got his pulleys. He said from the 88mm box set...I thought to myself...."Self, I have one of those". So, I went and looked and sure enough 6 little pulleys. I was super stoked. I had pulleys...now I need a chain.
I hope my Bergepanther turns out half as well as these guys. But, I'm super happy with it so far. I'm more excited about finishing this then my Konigs'.
These are before any wash, weathering, or modifications. I just had to show it so far because its going to be kool.
Enjoy...and look forward to Bergepanther part II....dun dun dunnnnnnn....is Stalin really Hitlers step dad, or will he be consumed by the dark side of the force?
