Bath tub for the Germans

Just finished the Kfz.13 Adler master. I have the second crew man drying at the moment, but what you see is what you get, except for the plastic supporting bits and the tablemats.
Totally outdated, these little vehicles were frequently seen in company with the 221s and other recce forces during the drive into Poland, and then going back the other way into the Low Countries and France. They even managed to linger around and drive into the Soviet Union, although by that time, they were quite obsolete. I always liked the Adler, as it is a bit of a cranky throw-back to the early 1900s, remaining in service at a time when most German equipment was starting to look really advanced. It proves that the British were not the only ones using Heath Robinson kit.


  1. Top marks for turning to the more obscure, yet fairly common, vehicles fielded. Hopefully we'll see this transferred to the tabletop and see some German forces with quite ropey kit!

  2. Nice work Ian, I love this little car.


  3. I am glad to see the master. Looks great.
