Nuts & Bolts Volume 38 part 2 continues on with the history of the Jagdpanzer IV. This volume describes
the two versions developed by the companies VOMAG and ALKETT; both types were armed with
the 7.5 cm Pak 42 L/70, an anti-tank gun that derived from the famous gun of the Panther.

If you take into account that the series production of both versions did not commence until August 1944, it is really surprising that by the end of the war (only 8 months later) 970 VOMAG and 277 ALKETT vehicles with this armament were built. However, both versions had no major impact on the course of the war.

Includes:

  • 393 photos, of these 160 contemporary photos from manuals and the front lines, most are previously unpublished
  • 19 color photos of the models from Tony Greenland
  • 214 colour photos of restored vehicles and their components in public and private collections
  • 20 pages of scale drawings of all versions and details in 1:35 scale from John Rue
  • 17 camouflage schemes from Laurent Lecocq
  • Tactical signs and five tables of organization of units (Kriegstärke-Nachweisungen KStN) having these vehicles in their arsenal

About Us

J.J. Fedorowicz Publishing went into business in 1983 as Military Book Distributor, selling other companies’ books through the mail. Many of those books were in German, and so during the next few years a number of individuals commented on how it would be nice to see them in English. I investigated the costs and possibilities, and the first book was printed; 400 copies of a 40-page biography on Paul Hausser (how many of you own that one?). This was followed by European Volunteers, the first hard cover and first translation. And here we are now, almost 100 books later, and many more to go.

From the first day, the company’s objective was to provide translations of the very best German-language books covering the German ground forces in WW II and to publish them in a format that would last many years (hard cover, on acid-free paper, with laminated covers). It appears that we have been fairly successful.

Started as a one-man operation by John Fedorowicz, the company grew steadily until more help was needed. Over time, 3 partners came on board and we added Tiger Hobbies as a local outlet for modelers and book buyers. Eventually, as times and economic circumstances demanded, the company has returned to the original owner. However, Sharron, who came on board in 2002 as office manager, has stayed to keep me in line and on target. Ken helps with Tiger Hobbies. So here we are, John, Sharron and Ken - when you call you will get one of us.

Defying the hard economic situation, we plan to publish many more excellent books in the future and to serve your reading and modeling needs for many more years.
