    Hello. As far as I know there's no paper model of this interesting vehicle yet, so I've decided to design one myself. I use 3ds max. Little details are still missing but it's almost ready for printing.

    Very nice! How long did it take you to design this? Please take pictures as you build and share them with us. We love pictures!

    Thank you for your kind comments. I made this in 6 days in December, but stopped because I'm also building a StuG, which consumes a lot of time. Now I'm preparing a cabin testing print, to see if all the edges connect correctly. Here's a render of how it should look..

    Hello Daimyo , first I want to say that your are building a great model.
    I have a naive question: It is possible to unfold the model by using the 3d studio max or did you use another program for unfolding? :mrgreen::mrgreen::mrgreen::mrgreen::mrgreen:

    Thank you. You can do unfolding with Unwrap UVW modifier, but to save the unfolded parts to a file I use Texporter plug-in. I'm sure there are other plug-ins for this purpose as well.

    Cabin exterior. I didn't try to cut and glue it perfectly so there are some gaps between some parts, but generally everything fits OK. Will have to lower the interior top and simplify some areas though. Not much modelling left till the final model, the harder part for me will be the texturing.

    I've always loved the supply trucks and other "schleppers", especially the Opel Maultier and the Steyr.

    You are really doing an outstanding job with this one, my hat is off to you! :)

    Interesting little vehicle indeed... I imagine there would be a lot of different bodies or addons for a vehicle like this, do you plan to make anything like that?

    Thank you for your kind comments. Yes there were many versions using this drivetrain: an open topped version, anti-tank version and many others. Even such a prototype existed!

    Making another body version is possible, but I'd like to finish this one first and then everything's possible.

    Meanwhile bodywork is almost finished:

    Thanks guys, I hope it looks as good in reality. I completed the engine and parts connecting to it. Next is cabin fitting parts and some small things in the suspension.
