1/144 Mercedes leichtes Löschgruppenfahrzeug LLG

Bild
For my own collection I finished last night the painting for the Mercedes fire engine. I have the Wehrmacht version in yellow but I wanted it as an civilian one too. The Mercedes was called leichtes Löschgruppenfahrzeug LLG, today it would be a LF8; a Löschfahrzueg for 8 firemen. Besides Opel many LF 8 have been produced on the chassis of the Mercedes L1500.  For more details you can read here









the new Kettenkrad and his special trailers

Two years ago I bought several Me 262 from Trumpeter as together with the Jet fighter you found a Kettenkrad in the box. I assembled one, but I never painted it.

So I started designing some of the special trailers the Wehrmacht used for the Kettenkrad.
A Kettenkrad in 1/144 is already very small and fragile, but the trailers are even one step fragiler. Therefore I designed everything for the ultra frosted material, it allows me dimensions from 0.5mm. Last weekend I picked it up and here are the first pictures:
