new stuff for Thanksgiving - new 1/144 tanks

Okay my plan to publish the new stuff right for Thanksgiving failed. And it failed totally. Besides the fact that I had lee time this week to do any drawings I had problems with the Maus special train trailer. I had to correct a mistake which Shapeways found, but  fore some reasons I do not found the root course. So this took me two evenings until I found the (stupid) mistake today. 

So, for the rest of the Thanksgiving weekend I will offer you the opportunity to order now.

First new model is the Opel Blitz, but not the 150 th. version, no, I designed it with the Einheitsführerhaus, a very primitive wooden cabin which by end of the war all truck producers had to use, so that they saved metal.

Based on this standard cabin I decided to go with the next version I never saw either in 1/144 nor on Shapeways for any other scale:

The Opel Blitz with Einheitsführerhaus and Holz Vergasser. So what was this? With the wooden cabin they saved metal, with the Holzvergaser they tried to save gas. The problem was, that you had to carry a lot of wood to burn it, what reduced the space and weight you could carry. Therefore the Wehrmacht used these trucks only behind the front lines and only for less important transport jobs.

Then I designed something more for me, the train station in El Alamein, that is in Aegypt, close to Cairo and was the turning point in Rommel's last attempt to sieg in Africa.

Flak trailer Drilling 144 002

This new trailer with two AA Flak Drillings will come soon.

And for some of my very best customers and only on request I will print:

This is a special 14 axis train trailer, used by the German Reichsbahn to transport the super heavy Maus tank to Böblingen and to Kummersdorf.
