German WW2 boxes and crates website

Postby Der Alder » Tue Aug 17, 2010 7:27 pm

Hey all, I found a site that has a lot of pictures of different types of German WW2 ammo crates for those interested on building replicas or collecting. It is a French site so I can't read all that is being said, but the pics pretty much speak for themselves. The photos give you an idea of the types of construction, latches, hinges and fonts/markings used.

I know...that was the first thing I looked for :(

I wish they'd show the inside of some of those crates as well. Those panzershreck and panzerfaust crates looked like a possible interesting replica project.

Check out too the grenade boxes with SS markings. I never knew they marked any crates like that. 8)

I cant vouch for the authenticity of anything there, but if correct it sure is interesting.

Oops -spoke too soon. I guess you can see the insides of them if you click on the lower left "details" button on each. :mrgreen:
