    I'm sure I've probably posted these on here before, but here are my lot:






    The StuG IV link (second down on the right in the top two pics) is of particular interest, as it's of a design I've yet to find any photo evidence of, despite looking very, very hard!

    Sure. Top two pics, left right, top to bottom:

    Panzer I (but actually from a Panzerwerfer 42 half track) / Panzer I
    Panzer III/IV / Rare StuG IV
    Ostketten / Winterketten
    Panther
    Tiger I

    Bottom two pics:

    King Tiger - two piece link consisting of ground show and connector link
    Elefant - this track had links with guide horns between links that were flat, this is obviously the latter. Unused condition though, must have been a hull mounted spare.

    That Elefant track is a rare piece indeed

    Indeed. Actually, that piece is from the battle of Kielce, at which point there were only 14 Elefants still in existence. After the battle, there were only four...

    I would love one with the guide horn too! I do have a track pin for it also, but I need to clear out some rust from the pivot holes so that I can fit it.

    Hi Steve,

    Do you think it's possible the rare StuG link may possibly be off a Jagdpanzer L/70? It is remarkably similar, or was there other pieces found with the link that pointed to it being off a StuG IV?? I honestly haven't seen one with the extra webs for strength or grip before and wondered if it might have to do with the use of the steel road wheels/bogie wheels that were required for the uprated weight of the IV chassis when used for the L/70. I appreciate your views.

    Regards, Ned.

    Very interesting Steve most people will not know much about the deployment of the Elefant after Kursk but of course the last few were still in action with the s Panzerjager Abt in 1945.

    Is this one from schwere Panzerjager Abt 614 ?
