    I think it's very hot to sit down in kettetnkrad:) and do you remember that in the film "saving ryan", kettenkrad was used to entice Tiger:D

    Wonderful build of what looks like a very nice model. Who makes the kit? Did you have any specific problems with it?
    Congratulations on a nice model!

    I had seen that last photo before but never noticed the Mercedes Benz star on the horses head. Nice model by the way.

    Think you'll find the merc badge has been added with PS or something, and isn't it an ox?

    It was early and the coffee hadn't kicked in. I guess I made an "ox" of myself, duh huh. They appear to be dry, however.

    Nice build. The first time I saw one of these was in the "Secret of Santa Vittorio", Hardy Kruger was driving if I recall correctly.

    I noticed that there is supposed to be a cover over the engine with a couple
    of air inlets behind the driver - like this one - http://www.kettenkrad.com/Kettenkrad.gif. - is this a problem with the kit?

    I don't think the Kettenkrad would be much hotter to drive around than most other motorbikes - at least you have the advantage the thing can't fall over when it's stopped. I've read somewhere that the Kettenkrads are a true "go anywhere" vehicle - they can climb 45 deg slopes in sand - try that with an SUV.

    Regards,

    Charlie

    I remember reading the front wheel was mostly for going over logs and that type of barrier, the tracks were skid steering thru linkages connected to the handle bars.
