Saechsischer Patronenwagen

I've seen this vehicle for the first time in a book that was released before Germany got reunited for the 10th time. There was a Patronenwagen (Ammunition carrier) for the Infantry and the Cavalry. The 'Hauptpark' of the army had more than 80 such vehicles, which must've made them a very common sight.

I personally love the Trittbretter as well as the nice texture of the side-parts.

The wheels are Bavarian from my knowledge since our own Saxon wheels will only turn up on tuesday! :--)

  2. That's a good looking miniature. 80 of them would've taken up some space on a road.

  3. Thanks guys, I know it's not as spectacular as a set of new Uhlans, but this is the back-bone of an armies train.

  7. Thank you gents. THis was a model that held the ammo for both the infantry and the 4pdr regimental guns.

    I have to check twice, but I believe it was in use since the 7yw.
