Jim Rae takes a look at a VERY surprising and little-known aspect of German Armor with this new book from Tankograd Publishing titled Panzerattrappen.

Looks like an interesting book. Should be able to find some ideas on how to use those over/under scale kits from the 70/80s. No names mentioned... I can see a mock up T-34 built on a half track like on the cover. Or you could build something out of Evergreen plastic sheets or go totally scratch build and use scale lumber. I still have some left over from my go at model railroading. Now how to convert HO scale (1/87) 2" X 4 " to 1/35 metric???

Definitely one of the lesser-known areas of the panzer troops and history. Thanks for the review Jim, will have to consider picking this one up.
