Have you ever dreamed of owning a real WW2 tank but cannot afford one, well dream no more. They can build you a replica that you can use for fun, re-enactment, or film work. The first question people ask is how much?, so here are some indication prices.

  • Stug III any mark.
  • Panzer III without side Armour
  • Replica 222 223 or 221 armoured car

This includes a donor vehicle which will be a FV432 selected to have good tracks, sprockets and engine pack. The 200 series armoured cars are based on diesel 110 Land rovers.

The FV432 we would use is the later Multi fuel engine, which will use diesel, petrol, or even mixed fuels which is great as when people fill up with the wrong fuel they have to have this disposed of. You can contact the pump out companies who will sell the stuff to you for pennies and sometimes give it to you.

Internally you can have a 3 man crew, although a 2 man crew can run it. The driver has a small opening hatch for loading etc or when driving through crowds but this can be shut as we equip him with a video monitor. The 432 is easy to drive as it is a semi automatic. The inside would be painted in white with all the needed electronics etc easily accessed. We would install full crew intercom so that the driver and commander can easily communicate.

They can finish it in a colour scheme you would like, with the correct markings as within the team we have a professional graphic artist who is an expert on German vehicles. They can also arrange for any other markings such as a vehicle name to be painted in authentic period writing. Our workshop has full spray facilities, as one of the other team members is a car paint sprayer. If you require the main gun to be equipped with a LPG gas gun simulator unit this would cost an additional £750. The LPG can be controlled from the commander as once set up all he has to do is push a button Internally you can have a 3 man crew, although a 2 man crew can run it.
