Hi guys,

As promised, I am in need of some more help.

Can anyone point me to a decent photo of the interior around the loader's hatch, particularly what is on the back wall behind him?

Thanks for any help,

Cheers
Steve

I recently had the pleasure to visit the Jacques Littlefield MVTF collection and their StuG III is particularly nice. Here's a shot, though it is a bit distorted due to the fish-eye lens.

Thanks Steve.

interesting.

Shows no loader seat. Take it the oval in the rear corner on the floor is for the MG butt

Any chance a pic of the commanders seat and how it mounted on the hull side wall, Please. Have not seen a clear pic of that area in over a dozen books i have.

Understand if not possible.

I'm afraid I didn't have the time or interest in the subject to have taken photos under the seat. All my shots simply show the top of the seat like this one.

Hi Andrew,

Couldn't decipher your email, but if you will explane it, I'll send you a picture of the area under the commnader's seat and how the seat attaches to the hull wall.
