    Default Nahverteidigungswaffe Restoration

    I'm restoring the close defensive weapon that was on a Tiger.. called the "Nahverteidigungswaffe ".

    I've got two pieces, one the ultra rare "Verschlußstopfen " or plug

    The restoration will depend on the availability of the parts.. fingers crossed.

    Thanks for the splendid link Devil's Bank. The videos of the tank interiors are killer.

    Hopefully this will be a full restoration project..

    Top Turret plate and inside Cannister seal on it's way to me.

    Very, very rare, the "Verschlußstopfen" is almost nigh on impossible to find.

    The armoured seal is Cannister shaped, and the plug stops rain entering the tank.

    It needs some TLC.. well, a lot of TLC..

    Default "Verschlußstopfen"

    Here are the two parts acquired so far..

    Top Turret plate and the ultra rare "Verschlußstopfen" plug..

    Both have been sent off for cleaning, derusting and restoration if possible (?).

    Never thought I would get my hands on the "Verschlußstopfen" plug

    Now painted, although not too sure on the actual colour for the inner cannister.

    RAL 8000 yellow brown is the colour.
