Pionierlandungsboot 39 in 1/144 my next high light

Bild
The Pionierlandungsboot was the first design before the German Wehrmacht (not the Kriegsmarine!) changes later to the Pionierlandungsboot 40.
For me the Pionierlandungsboot 40 was the easier design, more straight lines / walls and less curves. But with the time I improved my skills, learned new functions with sketchup, so I started with the design of the Pionierlandungsboot 39. The original was a design from the Wehrmacht and had nothing to do with the Kriegsmarine. The Kriegsmarine concentrated on destroyers cruisers and other big ships. But the Wehrmacht thought about the need to transfer stuff from A to B, anyway on the open sea or via a river.
Back to my drawing. I am close the finish the 3D file. I found a way to open the doors and to use it very similar to the original design. The ramp and the doors are moveable.
There are still some small errors inside the drawing and I have to check some of the dimensions, but I would say in 2 or 3 days it should be done.
So enjoy the first impres…

Sonderanhänger 116 German heavy duty trailer

Bild
In the last weeks I had a chance to finalize the painting for my first Sonderanhanger 116. 
So far I have now three versions. The one from Metal Troops, nice, but the one I bought, some years ago has a slightly damaged frame.
From Shapeways, I have the version in white strong and flexible (WSF) and with Frosted ultra detail (FUD).
Below are some pictures where you can see the difference.
