Tim,


Thanks for the great pics! I would be interested in possible Front views of the 1914 Benz and 1916 Opel (or of the other drawings you attached), if you have some. Also maybe photos of those trucks depcited on the drawings without too many soldiers blocking the view on them, if possible.


Many Thanks for your efforts in Advance!

Hallo Doggowitz!


The last photo in Tim's list above is a Model 1914 platform truck; an  Ehrhardt chassis mounting the Rheinmetall 7,7cm L/30 BAK.   These pieces served well throughout the conflict.  As added information, Ehrhardt had begun marketing this gun to foreign customers in 1912; Italy was their best customer.  Soon after mid September the army took delivery of dozens of these anit-balloon guns Rheinmetall had in inventory on carriage mounts.

Hi, and welcome!

At least for me the first pictures I can just click and watch. The other ones, however, I for some reason must actually download to my hard drive to be able to see. Try left clicking on the link and choose "save picture as" or similiar (depending on your browser).

Hope it helps!

Hi,


Are you registered with the forum yet? If you aren't registered, you won't be able to open the files. Don't worry about the "silly" question; the only silly question is the one you don't ask!

Oh, Im sorry. That is true, of course. You can't view the pictures if you aren't registered. Sounds strange that you haven't received the mail yet... Maybe you need to talk to an admin here.

Hope it works out!

I´ve registered and all gets ok.  Thank you very much for the help. Finally I´ve seen the trucks profiles.  Iwould like to know if someone knows the source of such profiles. Time ago I searched info abuot opel 1914 and found a german publisher (Sailer Verlag) who teorethically sells 1/35 plans (see)


http://www.erft.de/schulen/abtei-gym/remarque/lkw.htm


But Peter Voigt from Sailer Verlag answered me:


"leider sind die LKW-Baupläne nicht mehr lieferbar.". Unfortunately, the lorrie blue prints are not any more available".


But this question has been discused in the list in the post "1915 Opel: bad news".

Hello Doggowitz!
Here are some pics from Werner Oswald `s book :Kraftfahrzeuge der Reichswehr-Wehrmacht und Bundeswehr.
Hope they are something new for you. Quality is not even good cause of zooming on the scanner.

sincerly

Hello Doggowitz!
I'm re-building the Reviresco white metal kit of the Daimler Marienfelde truck, and while I looked for many pictures of this truck, I found few and far less than I expected in my books (in fact, I consider myself mainly into aircraft modeling). This is also my first post in the Landships forum and I hope to be of some help here. The Landships articles were a good help, and I found some other files on the net. Here's what I got from my web-sailing
Cheers

I've found this thread most interesting.  Was wondering if anyone has additional information such as dimensions, wheelbase, hp, et cetera.  The only sourch I've been able to locate in English is Vanderveen's "The Observer's Army Vehicles Directory" that has relatively little dimensional info on Imperial German vehicles.  Has there been a similar thread for Brit, French and US vehicles?

Try getting hold of Tankograd publications:
- Wehrmacht Special No 4001
- Wehrmacht Special No 4002

Despite the title, both have a good selection of WW1 german truck photos.

The first also has coverage of captured Mk IV tanks and the second has coverage of German armoured cars 1915-20.

Thanks for the tip. I see that there's also a Tankograd 4003. Does it have any useful ino on the subject?

Er, 'yes'.  Sorry about that.

4003 has good articles and pictures on WW1 German staff cars, trucks and police armoured cars from the 1920s (Daimler and Erhardt).

Also forgot to mention, 4001 has some interesting pictures of WW1 horse-drawn bread ovens and de-lousing steamers... no they are not dual purpose!

All three, as you might expect, have Third Reich material as well.  But then these publications are trying to appeal to a broad base.

Later ones in the series cover subjects outside the scope of this forum.

The first 3 though are well worth their modest cost and come recommended by me.  If you buy them, please post some feedback on them for others.

Received 4001 and 4003 in todays mail after buying them for a very reasonable price on eBay. Really enjoyed the fine pictures. My only regret is that the author didn't include dimensions such as wheelbase, length, width, et cetera.

Tim R, where are the plans of the vehicles sourced from? Or does anyone else know?

I'm after high resolution images of plans for making 3D models for the virtual museum work I'm doing.

Recently, in the Spanish forum www.panzernet.com, an interesting thread about Spanish military trucks has emerged in the Moroccan campaigns. Very interesting if you are interested in the subject.

In this thread appear, mainly, photographs taken during the Melilla campaign of 1909.

I insert here some of the photographs that have been commented. Although it is a vehicle prior to the First World War, it is not without its interest. A SAG Gaggenau of the Spanish Army during this campaign.

You can also find images of other cars and trucks donated by private individuals or by the Crown as well as some Hispano Suiza ambulance manufactured later. I Highly recommended a visit to that thread.
