I'm planning on making a Ferdinand from Pz.Abt. 653. I know that the jack, jack block, tool box and some other items were moved as field modifications....but I'm not sure when these items would have been moved....if all where moved at the same time, some of the items moved at different times, or what ????
After lookin through th Combat History , it seems that some crews of th Ferdinand did move th stowage box from th right side of th vehicle to th rear, noting that it saved them from being damaged in battle. It also looks like this happened later, after Kursk up until The Ferdies were shipped back to th Nibelungen Werks ( Jan. '44) to be refitted as Elephants , when all Elephants had Their Stowage Boxes relocated to th rear.
WHAT DO YOU CALL THE ASSASSINS THAT ACCUSE THE ASSASSIN???
