    Default scrap glorious scrap!!!!

    Found this great photo on the "worldwide Interweb" of what was described as 'scrapped panthers in Normandy' .......I think it looks like one of the scrapyards in the Falaise gap ( maybe the one in Trun? ) .... and there are more Mk III's and IV's than mk V's anyway.

    Anyway I hadn't seen it before and the resolution was so good I thought I would show it here for us all to drool over .........

    If only I could go back in time and try to barter with the guards over one of those panther. "Ill give you 3 cartons of smokes for the big one" "Deal"

    I think we all have a common wish to find such a yard today. I would have one parked on my front lawn with no hesitation.

    Great photo Dan, what a collectors playground that is!...
    It's a wasted trip baby. Nobody said nothing about locking horns with no Tigers.

    An interesting thing ( I thought ) was the Panther in the front - it looks like maybe a brew up and the zimmerit is mostly gone from the turret. I read somewhere that the shock wave of internal ammunition explosions would blast the concrete-like paste off the surface metal - what a way to go, at least it would have been quick!
