Jim takes a look at this new release from Trumpeter, the Panzerjager-Triebwagen 51. An anti-tank rail car designed to counter Soviet AFV raids on their rail system.

Hi Guys,
A friend of mine built the single turret Pz 4 railwagon from Trumpeter and had to replace the turret because the kit parts were just plain wrong. Did they fix the turrets in this one?

Georg

Hi

There are 2 new turrets included, but all other parts looks the same.
You will have to work on the turret doors.

Hey Georg. Did your friend replaced the whole turret? I´m thinking to buy either of those TRP Pz.IV Railwagon variants and after reading Terry´s review on PMMS, I started to plan using DML Pz IV (6360) turret instead the original one.. Could somebody tell, if they fit together?
