Yes, North Queensland are working on restoring a WW2 Jagd Panther sourcing parts from other vehicles:

The above is the latest episode with a rear hull plate being fitted, upper side armour sourced from a knocked out Jagd Panther and the re-spray of the wheels and sprockets.

Note the choice of colour for the base 'yellow' which clearly wanders more to a sand/earth mix.

Amazing job of fitting parts from many wreak tanks and fabricating missing parts.

I love the phrase "minor adjustments with a sledgehammer."

"minor adjustments with a sledgehammer."

Great stuff. I had to use closed caption because I could not understand a word that was being said. Close caption had trouble figuring it out. LOL, they probably wouldn't understand me either with my southern accent.
