    I'm working on a modell of Trumpeter SdKfz-184 Ferdinand in 1/72. Since the modell includes a beutifull grilles for engine deck i need something uder them. Does anyone have any detail photos or drawings of the engine compartment?

    All i found is a sideway ( direcly from port side) cutaway of the wehicle that doesn't help much with placment of the details.

    As all hathes on fighting compartment can be glued opened i would also need drawings or photos of fighting compartment.
    Same sideways cutaway also shows the figting compartment but again is not usable in regards of placment of details on the left side of fighting compartment
    I plan to use parts from Italeri/ESCI kit for the interior.

    Thanks. The last two are very helpfull. At least in the direction of the engine/generator blocks and lenght and placement of electric motors. Unfortunaly no details of placement and shape of water coolers for the engines.

    Where and how were the coolers placed?
    On the drawing they are behind the driver compartment. I would need the drawing from the top to see how wide and where exactly they are placed.
