tankette Looking for Panther Ausf D Kursk photos

I am prepping up for my next project. I finally got all the AM stuff I need and now need some reference photos. I have dug through all my references by Spielberger, Ryton and Jentz and could only find one photo that has the features I am looking for.

Here is a list of features I am looking for:

The Panther in this photo is number "415" from the 52nd Panzer Abteilung in repair depot in Borisovka near Belgorod in August 1943.

Photo taken from "Panther in Action 1943-45" - Wydawnictwo Militaria

Anyone has any photos to share?

Lawrence

Hi Lawrence,

I have a bunch of pics of Panthers with twin headlight and smoke candles, but not with the boxes at the rear.

tough one Lawrence!

I only found three, rather bad pics of one Panther in a training area with that distinctive side stowage box of the first Dīs.
Are you going to make a Panther in repairment?

Thanks Rene, would you mind e-mailing the photos to me? My e-mail is lawrencequah@gmail.com
I will build it heading into battle.

Hi Lawrence
Mail sent!. I asked if you are going to do it in repair because I donīt think that the "rear stowage box" is actually attached to the hull like an extra feature of a Panther going into battle or...probably you have some more info about it? but It looks just like somebody put a tool box there.

Thanks for the photos. They are great and are useful

Some the D's and early A's had stowage boxes on them over the air intanke grills. I will post some clearer photos when I get home.

Who said that!!?...

You are absolutely right Lawrence! I had not noticed that feature in my references before


By the way these pics can be found in the Panther book from Concord N°7006

Yup those are the ones. I looked through my reference books and lo and behold, I found that I have a copy of Concord 7006. I forgotten I even had it

Here's more photos from Ryton. The last one is the same vehicle #232 as you have posted but from a different angle. The Panthers had quite varied types of boxes.

Thanks for posting the photos. I've gotten quite interested in Panthers of late and still have oh so much to learn. Very interesting topic, indeed.
