Panzerwrecks 12 P58: Possible unit ID

Sergio Molinelli got in touch with us to say that he thinks the insignia shown on the M8(a) armoured car fitted with an MG 151/15 is that of StuG Brigade 286. Further research is needed as I have only seen this on a shield shaped background, not a square. Thanks for sharing this information with […]

Panzerwrecks X P96: Wirbelwind in Orbec “Then & Now”

Some time ago I was contacted by Lionel Gonnet who kindly shared a couple of “Then & Now” style photos with us of the 12thSS prototype Wirbelwind photographed in Orbec. Apparently it was photographed on the road to Livarot. I took the liberty of Photoshopping the original wartime photo, taken by Major Sangster onto Lionel’s […]

In Memory of ‘Sarge’ Bealko: 28 May 1924 to 30 March 2011.

In “Panzerwrecks 12” we ran a feature entitled, “Sarge Bealko Shoots a Tiger II.” ‘Sarge’ was Ed Bealko, the vet who took the photos in Mons, Belgium, all those years ago. He generously provided the originals to us so that we could present them in our books. Ed was just a teenager when he drove […]

Panzerwrecks 2 P24/5 – Roadwheels

Today we received an e-mail from Rudi Schoeters who had some observations about the photos of the StuG IV on pages 24 & 25 of Panzerwrecks 2, over to you Rudi: “P24-25 we see the ko’d StuG IV. take a closer look at the roadwheels and you’ll see a difference between the first 4 wheels […]

Panzerwrecks 11 and the Shape of Things to Come

No matter how good an original photo is when we first come across it, we always try to make it better during production. You have no idea how much work Lee puts into removing scuffs and stains and tears and tape. (Photos we used in PW8 originally had rusted staples in them, and Lee made […]

Panzerwrecks 6 P60-72 – Flammpanzer 38. The missing photos …

I have said it before, and I’ll say it again; sometimes we just cannot fit everything into a Panzerwrecks that we want. Much squabbling and tantrums precedes most Panzerwrecks, but it’s all for the greater good. Here are three images from the report that we could not fit in. The pole or tube that the […]

Panzerwrecks 6 P66 – Flammpanzer 38

Recently we were contacted by Eelke Warrink of the Netherlands with some extra information about the label next to the driver’s visors of the Flammpanzer 38.”I recently bought Panzerwrecks 6, and was intrigued by the Flammpanzer interior shot showing a warning placard, on page 66. In the caption, you give the interpretation ‘… teile der […]

Panzerwrecks X P22 – Sturmgeschütz III in Berlin – extra photos

Lack of space meant that we could only use one shot of the Sturmgeschütz III on the corner of Invalidebstrasse and Brunnenstrasse. Is it us, or does the German policeman bear more than a passing resemblance to a member of the band Devo? It must be that hat. Seen any other lookalikes in Panzerwrecks? Drop […]

Panzerwrecks X P76-7 – Sturmhaubitze 42 Ausf.G

Panzerwrecks X is shaping up as the one Panzerwrecks with the most mis-identifications – so far. David Roy was good enough to notice that the vehicle on Pages 76-77 of PWX is a Sturmhaubitze 42 Ausf G, not a Sturmgeschütz III Ausf G. “On the StuH, the welded mantlet barrel shroud tapers at the end […]
