Here is another great Reference book from Progressive Publishing of Poland.

"Armor Photogallery #5, Saumur Musee des Blindes Part 1 German Equipment"  is a soft cover volume with 68 pages in full colour. As the name implies, it focuses on German armour at the famous Saumur Museum in France. Text is in both English and Polish, supplemented by 232 high quality colour photos.

41 different items of German equipment are covered:

  • Pzkpfw IIc

  • Wespe

  • Pzkpfw III Ausf F

  • StuG III (Stug 40) Ausf G

  • StuH 42 105mm

  • Pzkpfw IV Ausf J

  • Jagdpanzer IV F (L/48)

  • Möbelwagen

  • Hummel & Brummbar

  • Jagdpanzer IV/70(A)

  • Bergepanther Ausf G

  • Panther Ausf A and Jagdpanther

  • Tiger I Ausf E

  • Tiger II Ausf B

  • Marder I, Marder III & Marder IIIM

  • 10.5cm LeFH 18 auf GW 39H (f)

  • Hetzer

  • Carro Armato M15/42 and Semovente M42 75/18

  • Halftracks Sdkfz 10, 11, 250/9, 251/7, Panzerwerfer 42 auf Maultier

  • Nebelwerfer 41/42

  • 2cm Flak 30 and Flak Vierling 38

  • Pak 35/36, 38, 40

  • 10.5cm leFH 18

  • Trippel SG 6

  • Schwimmwagen

  • Sdkfz 2 Kettenkraftrad

  • Zundapp 750 and Goliath

All items are covered with some excellent photograph, many showing close-up details for the modeller.

What I found most valuable is that manyof the vehciles are still in their original paint schemes, not having been resprayed since the end of the war. The other vehicles have been mostly sympathetically restored.

Overall, I consider this is a vry good, broad reference source. I look forward to future editions from Progress.


Thanks to Squadron.com for the review sample.
