A replica of the German WWII medium tank Panzer III was spotted in Russian Stary Oskol on Friday.

The Panzer III was made from scratch by two enthusiasts – brothers Mikhail and Aleksander Sheptayevs.

“We turned to Kubinka museum in Moscow which is now called Park Patriot. People there granted us access to the [German] tanks where we used a tape-measure to measure the sizes,” said Mikhail Sheptayev.

Aleksander Sheptayev added that they have plans to build a copy of T-34 tank.

Apart from this tank Sheptayev brothers have made many other WWII military equipment replicas including trucks, SUVs and armored vehicles.

The Panzer III is a medium tank developed in the 1930s by Germany. It was extensively used during the World War II by the army of Nazi Germany and several other countries.
