Many more out there on the web. Make a image search for
“Soldat mit dienstglas” or “wehrmacht mit dienstglas” etc.

On page 24, the fourth photo shows in the foreground an SL4 rangefinder, attached photo of the one Admiral Graf Spee had.
Would anyone have information or photos?
My intention is to take proportions to determine dimensions to model it on a 1/350 scale.
Very grateful in advance

I can't attach the photo. Can someone tell me the procedure?

Hello duifer,

For attachments use the " Full Editor", choose 'Attachments'-Tab below.

It is exactly post #352.
I tried to insert image by selecting the icon by copying and pasting but it does not accept it ¿?

I added a screenshot, if you have files on disk (not too large), it will work, I think

factfndr54 dear, it is impossible for me to send the photo and I tried what you explained to me and it doesn't work.
The only thing I can think of is to send it by email if you give me an email address.

For duifer and others trying to post images.
Have a look at the “how to…” post. It might help.
