It all started in early 2015 when I was contacted via the Panzerwrecks Facebook page by an unknown artist named Felipe Rodna, offering to create colour profiles. Discussions ensued, but the late Bill Auerbach was reticent, so the idea of including his artwork was shelved. Fast-forward to late 2015, when I was laying out my […]

Period photographs come in all shapes and size, and more importantly, all conditions. Since cleaning my first photo for Panzerwrecks 1 in 2005, thousands of photos have passed over my graphics tablet, and the process has become more intuitive. I have trialled many techniques and a lot of software, but there is no substitute for […]
I think the best way to sum up 2018 for Panzerwrecks is “behind schedule”. We’d planned to publish more that we actually achieved for a start. Panzerwrecks 22: Desert made it out of the computer and into your hands. The book had been a work in progress of mine for many years, and was surprisingly […]
It’s that time of year: Royal Mail’s yearly price-hike. Apart from UK orders – which are free – shipping costs will be increasing at the end of March. Fear not Panzerwreckers, it’s not much, but I thought it only right to let you all know. Lee
Well not us exactly – the books have moved to a new warehouse, not that anyone’s interested … All 24,000 of them. No longer are they by the sea in sunny Eastbourne (as pictured), but just up the road from Panzerwrecks Towers in Heathfield.
It’s been a busy year – from Hetzers (dare I say the word for fear of being corrected), to models and finishing up with a tome about Panzer Brigade 107. Who knows what 2017 will bring? Well, I have an idea … Panzerwrecks will be publishing more hard and softcover books. Expect more stunning artwork from the […]
Having a teenage daughter who is seemingly welded to her smartphone it was just a matter of time before Panzerwrecks made its way to Instagram … https://www.instagram.com/panzerwrecks/
The last copy of Panzerwrecks 7 was sold this morning and will wing its way to its good home on Monday morning. It joins Panzerwrecks 12, and soon Panzerwrecks 9 in the ‘out of stock’ status. It’s not out of print though, as I may decide to reprint at a later date, but realistically speaking it […]
Welcome to the latest version of the Panzerwrecks website. Why the overhaul? Primarily because the previous site was not ‘responsive’ for viewing on smartphones and tablets. As a result, the full desktop site was always served. This new site is responsive and easy to navigate on mobile devices. I took the opportunity to overhaul the colour palette, as the old ‘camo’ […]
The daughter of Holy Roman Emperor Frederick III? Saint Cunigunde of Luxembourg? A search of the internet does not get us too far, as least insofar as this rare name relates to a StuGIV of SS-Pz.Abt.17. We thought by now that someone out there would have come up with an answer. Bueller?… Bueller?
