 It's funny how small the world is! But this time it won't be another head-to-head race! I am just randomly trying out which parts ought to be new and which I could reuse.

@Charlie C
I have the intention that the wheels were an evolution of steam traction design indeed. But nevertheess there was a patent specially for artillerie tractors, the so called "Pöhl-Rad":

 Hi Peter,

It is indeed a small world... smile

As far as I can tell, the vehicles are basically the same apart from the front wheels, a different back of the cabine and the back of the vehicle has a fixing point for the Lastenverteilergerät and room for 2 small planks and 2 wedge thingies used for loading a gun into the Lastenverteilergerät.

With kind regards,

-Arie

Arie, your 55hp tractor looks very good. I especially like the brass frame! The fixing point for the Lastenverteilergerät is reinforced by beams as you can make out in this drawing and the picture. The Lastenverteilgerät itself is a nightmare for CAD work

I am looking forward to the finished model!

All the best, Peter

Hi Peter,

Thanks for clarifying how the Lastenverteilergerät is attached to the vehicle. Your drawings look great!!

By the by, the brass frame is basically a necessity, as it prevents my printed chassis from warping... smile

With kind regards,

-Arie.

Hi Gents (Hi Arie😉)

At least, all that boring breaking off, patching, glueing, filling, sanding and cursing finally leads to an outcome.

 

Primer:

Preshading:

First coat of paint:

Hmm, all that pre-shading turned out as obsolete. Perhaps, the difference between the brown primer and the black shading was too little. So I have to work more with washings and filters.

But now the funny part begins : weathering!

Cheers, Peter
