Welcome to my page!

Hello,

here I present my work. I create dioramas in the time period of World War II and everything only in the scale 1/144.
My main focus are tanks but from time to time a take a look at submarines, interesting airplanes and small ships.

Opel Blitz Kraftzugspritze 8 Feuerschutzpolizei light fire truck

When the Nazis took over the German government, they already planned ahead for a future war. Therefore they tried to standardize all German fire brigades with the same trucks and equipment. Instead of the fire brigades they came under the control and command of the Feuerschutzpolizei or the Luftwaffe. All trucks of the Feuerschutzpolizei got a Tannengruen paint (dark green).
The Kraftzugspritze KzS 8 was a small unit with enough space for the complete group and a pump inside the trailer The engine for the pump was a small Volkswagen engine. 
I decided to go with the Feuerschutzpolizei, as this gives me a reason to paint a green truck.
For the trailer there were several different solutions, why I designed two of them.
