    Default German Sdffz 251 Halftrack.

    Another nice set of photo's,
    Just in case we forget what a real 251 look's like as there are so many Czech copy's out there these day's.Although they look good there is nothing like the real thing.Not sure of the history on this particular example but i think it had just been fully restored. Ive had these shot's for a number of year's

    Nice looking ride hey guy's

    Hi Tom, I know this particular vehicle which you show. I see it most years at Beltring "War & Peace Show" here in the UK.

    It was found in Vienna. The markings it carries are the original ones it wore in the war.

    The "251" is my all time favourite vehicle!

    Cheers, Ade.

    Hi All,

    The sdKfz 251/1 ausf D with the green camo belongs to the same person that owns the Jagdpanther that was put on show at Beltring a few years back.
    the restoration work on his vehicles is stunning ...you'll find anything in and on those vehicles ...radio's , gasmasks, grenades, tools, ... til the smallest last detail.

    When this particular 251 made its debut at Beltring I was lucky to have a ride in it .......awesome experience

    His team is now still working on a Stug III

    Wow!
    You got to ride in that actual 251! Now that's living it up big bullit.There's no Armour over here in my part of Australia so that's why i'm desperate for part's but will never have the real thing.I'd like to see shot's of their Panther

    Hi Tom

    Yes to have a ride in one of those machine gives you a thrill ...sofar I was lucky to have rides with a kettenkrad, Demag D7, SdKfz 251/1 Ausf D , SdKfz 7 Borgward, and last summer in the huge SdKfz 9 Famo.
    The panzers are still on my want list to have a spinn with

    Here is Mike Gibbs superb Jagdpanther ( before and after) and the Stug III they are still working on since 2004 ( pic is the state he required it )

    ciao

    Great stuff!
    Ive seen the story behind the Jagdpanther recovery and restoration.It's amazing that we were shooting those thing's up on the Tank range's.We did that here in oz to nearly all of our captured German Armour.The Tiger I is burried at our GMH factory somwhere and there is a Panzer IV Ausf.J buried under a factory in Melbourne!
    If i had the power i would be digging them out myself
