    Welcome.

    I would like to present the stories of SP gun stug IV, which is currently being renovated in Poland . It was extracted from the river during second attempt . First once tried to do it in the fifties, but in vain.

    At present , reconstruction is coming to the end, but the museum historian under the direction of captain OGRODNICZUK face every step with the new problems .

    At this place I would like to appeal to all Friends about help.They need manual to Stug IV/III ,especialy information dates about oil capacity in transmition and gun recoil cylinder) .Well it`s really possible return this stug to 100% efficient (Running condition)

    Below I link to their web site (sorry now only in polish), more info ,You can find on 1-25 Scale Armor Forum in thread stug IV restoration ,where I keep all update , in english too .



    Exploration report here

    Maybe somebody from Saumur ,Sisheim, Munster or from Parola could ask in museum.There are running stugs and panzer IV and I suspect they have to service vehicles.
