I found this drawing on a WW2 Historic website. Thought it would be fun to reproduce it as a scale model. The dimensions appear to be in decimeters and I converted them to feet and scaled from there. The drawing itself does not scale proportionately to the dimensions hence my trailer looks a bit long. I did manage to get the model overall length to within 1.4 scale feet of the illustrated dimensions. It is most likely a concept drawing of what might have been. I have been unable to locate any photos of the real thing. If any of you have seen photos of this type of rig I would love to hear about it. I couldn't resist painting it up in Werhmacht colors as a conscripted vehicle. P1010148.JPG P1010149.JPG P1010158.JPG P1010159.JPG
