    Default Berlin panzerfaust

    G'day all,
    Got this fantastic panzerfaust tube in the post yesterday! I'm really pleased with this, it is very solid beneath the rust so I'm going to give it a bit of a clean up with a wire brush, then I'm off down to the local hardware store (bunnings) to buy a plastic tub and a few other things and I'm going to make up an electrolysis bath for it to remove the really bad corrosion. I'm especially pleased with this as it was found just 3 Kms from the reich chancellery! Will attach a couple of pics now and a few once it has come out of the electrolysis bath.
    Cheers,
    Dave.Click image for larger version.

    Nice pick up Dave I have always been intrigued by the Panzerfaust they are so simplistic in there design and in the right hands a very deadly weapon you must be stoked it was found so close to the Reich Chancellery building.

    Always on the look out for WW II Canadian Helmets and Cam nets to add to my collection.

    Found a Canadian Mk II Medics Helmet and yes I know they are about as rare as hens teeth !!!!!

    If only you could have seen what the last soldier to hold it saw! There is an amazing story to this one, told in the last days of the war, and now lost to history.

    Just did a quick clean up with the wire brush to remove the worst of the rust, it came up pretty well I think. Now I have to make up the electrolysis bath, I'll see how I go!Click image for larger version.
