Munitionsschlepper I

Munitionsschlepper I

Postby DuxHomunculorum » 17 Sep 2014

I recently did a quick and easy conversion of a 15mm Panzer I as a Munitionsschlepper I (spaet). This was my first experience of Minairons, and I thought the kit went together beautifully. I'm looking forward to more WWII releases...

The Schlepper is for use in games of Battle Group Kursk.

Interesting vehicle - is it based on a photo?

Nice conversion there :good:

Would I be allowed to post, or re-direct to, these pictures from Minairons' own blog? Your job might be a source of inspiration for other hobbyists.

Thanks for sharing,

Luis, I'd be honoured. :grin:

The Schlepper is based on photos like these:

But mainly on the work of some other hobbyists like this:
http://spruebender.net/forum2/index.php?topic=499.0

As I understand it, the original Munitionsschlepper I replaced the turret with a large split hatch over the turret ring, while the later version (which mine is supposed to be) replaced this with a box superstructure, offset to allow access to the side hatch.

Happy to be proven wrong on any of this though!

Cheers,
Alan.
