Could you be more specific on what are you looking for? History, technical information, drawings, photo collections, profiles, a general reference, how-to modelling...?

I will let others give their opinion, on these publications:
http://armorama.kitmaker.net/modules.php?op=modload&name=SquawkBox&file=index&req=viewtopic&topic_id=262477&page=1
They are not all referencing WWII German Armor, but most do. Also, if you can be a little more specific, I have a large digital library I can dig through for photo references. I will refrain from sending you digital publications as that may fall under copyright infringement.

About building, Tony Greenland's Panzer Modelling Masterclass is a good volume, although a bit outdated.
There are also a few Osprey books dealing with specific German tanks (Modelling the Tiger I, Modelling the Jagdpanzer 38(t) 'Hetzer', etc)
And nothing else I can remember specifically for German Tanks.

For generic model building, Adam Wilder first volume of Adam's Armour is a good one. Also the Ammo Encyclopedia volume 1.

As for painting, there are a couple of Tank Art volumes devoted to German WWII armour. And again the above Adam's Armour Volume 2 and Ammo encyclopedia, plus AK-Interative FAQ 2 deal with painting but not only about German subjects.

Hope this helps!

7024 Concord Armor At War- Wehrmacht Support Vehicles

7039 Concord Armor At War - Gerrman Armoured Units at Arnhem, September 1944

7057 Concord Armor At War - Panzer in the Gunsights 2

7070 Concord Armor At War - Panzer Divisions in Battle 1939-1945

None deal, with any specific vehicle. I will try to go through the rest of my library, tomorrow. Most of it is in Russian, but I will see what I can come up with.

Osprey Intermediate Military Vehicle Modelling is the only one I have. If you are just starting off, you should look for the beginner's guide. However, it is in "like new" condition and retails for $17.95. If you want it, I will sell it to you for $12, shipping included.

I have scanned through the rest of my library. I don't have anything that goes into enough detail that it would benefit an overview of either vehicle.
