I don’t understand the shields on the mg sides. Is it to protect the water cooled jackets?

I believe so


Also to keep bullets, fragments and ricochets out of the turret as the MG was pretty much
just stuck through the opening on the turret.

Funny thing is that of all the German WWII tanks, I find the Panzer IV the most attractive (odd thing I know).  I find Tigers and Panthers more boring.

In terms of looks I find the Mk III's the neatest, but I know what you mean with the Mk IV

Cool - they're boxing their GAZ-AA and 3 ton crane together. I wonder if they're going to make the changes required to turn it into a Ford (like the radiator badge)

The "Lulubelle" was the name of the tank in Sahara, with Humphrey Bogart as Sgt. Joe Gunn and " Lulu Belle" in the 1995 remake with Jim Belushi as Sgt. Joe Gunn

DEF model made a Jim Belushi version of Sgt. Joe Gunn and it really looks like him. The main figure in this set look more like Belushi than Bogart.
