Permalink   


This deals with the markings ect of the Master box Austin III and IV armored car kits in 1/76

Austin III:

Top Row German D (decal) 4 freikorps unit

Austrian D9 The Austrians captured one which did serve in army's only armored car platoon but it appears it wasn't captured with rest of the unit by the Yugoslavs on 2 Nov 1918. It somehow made it back to Austria and was in use until 1933. Of course the Austrians could have captured more than one as usually reported.
