Welcome to my page!

new 1/144 models published 29/52

Some days ago I published several new designs on my Shapeways Account Panzerfabrik 144
It has been a while that I had published new models but my job and my garden left me not so much time.
But now I have painted them, took pictures and now I can offer them.

So, here what new designs I can offer you for your 1/144 world:

Most new designs are based on the Mercedes 4500 S and A.
Mercedes produced this truck in several variants.

Mercedes Maultier with Einheits-Cabin

- Mercedes 4500 S as a train truck

- Mercedes 4500 double pack, two Maultier trucks but with different cabins

- Mercedes Maultier with steel cabin

- Mercedes 4500 truck

Culemeyer 8 axis version to transport any heavy German tank

- Culemeyer 2 axis, short version

- Opel Blitz with AA flak and armored cabin

- 12.8 cm Flak on Reichsbahn platform car

- Faun tank transport set, tractor and trailer in one set

- Barack for Flak crew, redesign based on original plans from the Luftwaffe

- Italian bunker, many of these bunkers are still existing today



But my highlight is a very special design where I tried something new: a horse in 1/144. It took very Long, but now a have a working design, so that as a first model I present the German Field Bakkery  together with two horses. The Trailer Comes with Standard rubber wheels, the Wehrmacht used this trailer with horses or drawn by trucks.




and for all Kriegsmarine fans I created some very interesting designs:

- Infanterietransporter, a small landing craft, used by Germany and Finnland

- Sprengboot Tornado, a very unknown design

- Marinefährprahm Type DM, a German landing craft designed to lay Sea mines

Heavy Kingtiger transport with Kässbohrer plattform trailer 28/52

Here some combinations of my Kässbohrer trailer together with a King Tiger.
The Tractor changed on the pictures. The trailers belonged to the German Reichsbahn and had been borrowed from the Wehrmacht as at the beginning they had no own trailers for the heavy tanks.

1/144 double pack, two Famos with one King Tiger

1/144 even for two Famos a King Tiger would be a hard job

- 2 Infanterietransporter

1/144 Sturmmörser 28 cm 38 (D) 26 / 52

Normally I do not build or collect something what do not saw any action during WWII. But no rule without exceptions. The Sturmmörser is such an exception. Somehow I liked it and the price for the unassembled kit was okay.
So here my Sturmmörser 28 cm 38D.

1/144 Tornado Sprengboot 25/52


The Tornado Sprengboot was one of the very desperite Trials to Change everything -  when it was already too late.
As far as I could find out, there was at least one prototype which was used for Trails. When the Russians came closer, the Germans Blow up everything.

The design is very simple, the swimmer are from the Ju 52, the engine is from the V1.
