The second volume of Panther Project follows the Restoration process of the Engine and Turret process along with its connected systems, information on Zimmerit. Some very nice Hull walk around along with interior photos, there are 440 photographs that make up this book along with some nice technical drawings of components.


Before they dive in on the restoration there are several pages on the History of the Panther tank along with the usual introduction. The rest of the book is broken up by each year on restoration 2007 2009 2013 2017 and 2018 and at the back are some references and technical drawings for the restoration process. Each chapter is broken up by what job is being done and gives the page numbers for easy reference. I'll be posting a picture of the index page as there is a lot of work going into each section.


This book was very well written and has some hard to find photos a great asset if you are building a Panther model OR are like me and love restoration books. I highly recommend picking this up if you have the opportunity, I'll be looking into getting Volume 1 here soon as well.

Thank you IPMS and AFV Publications for the opportunity to review this great book
