This book provides a fascinating account of the Panther Jagdpanther during the Second World War, and is illustrated throughout with some black and white photographs, as well as lots of schematic plans and line diagrams showing parts of the vehicle itself.
We spent hundreds of hours accurately measuring survivors and over a thousand hours drawing at full-scale to create as-built drawings for the first time - accurate to the same tight tolerances demanded of the original assembly firms. Hundreds of research hours went into finding the numerous previously unnoticed modifications. Therefore, we have selected the unique approach of using 1/10th scale drawings to illustrate the smallest details, while six-view (including right side and belly) 1/35th scale drawings are still used for the complete Jagdpanther. We also created drawings of many components to aid modelers make accurate parts that are hard to replicate when only drawn at angle. This book is also loaded with information on the development history, production, unit organization, issue, tactics, and wartime reports from front-line units. This 92 page book is heavily illustrated with over 200 scale drawings and 45 clear/rare large-format photos.
Condition of the booklet is generally very good. The cover has one or two minor scuffs but is clean and tidy, the staple spine is intact, and all pages are clean, intact, unblemished and tightly bound.
