    Dear Granatwerfer,

    Very interesting, thank you very much for presenting! May I ask you about the tank in the background please, it's a 'landungstraeger'?

    Hi Alter Musketier

    The vehicle in the background is not a 'landungstraeger' but my Kettenkrad that I have been rebuilding for more years than I care to remember. It does not have a set of forks yet that is why it looks like the landungstraeger. I do have some armour from a StuG III, Ausf G that I have restored, see this thread.

    Hi Alter Musketier

    The first picture was taken before I removed the bodywork to fit the engine/gearbox/fan unit. The second shows the engine installed.

    Acquired another part for the mortar the other day, it is the sight extension attachment. You can see it in the attached picture behind the horizontal adjustment handle, not a good quality picture I'm afraid. A future restoration project.
