Panzerwrecks 13: StuG IV hinged visor

Martin Cavell contacted me recently to share a snippet of information that might be of interest to readers of the series. Over to you Martin:

The Stug IV on p.12, I noticed for the first time that the driver’s visor’s sunshade/rainguard is hinge-connected to the visor’s armoured guard, and in this photo you can see one sunshade is folded back over its armoured guard. I guess this hinge allows access for cleaning etc. I never knew they were hinged.

Neither did I. Here is an enlargement of the offending visor. Thanks Martin!
