German Draisine Zeppelin

Hi,
for all rail transport fans and not I post my first image of my last scratch project 1/35 German draisine Zeppelin built only in few exemplars using captured materials.
I used for reference Paul Malmassari's book for the drawings unfortunately there is not much documentation of this subject.
Stay tuned more pic will follows.

Thx for looking
Dario

interesting subject.

Dario,

You have a very interesting subject in construction here with the Draisine Zeppelin.
Even with the "limited" reference on the subject, you are well on your way to completing a nice build.
Question; what type or brand of colored styrene are your using for the build?
Thanks and please keep posting photos to the finish.

Alex, the colored styrene is recycled from some sheet found at work are two types, one dark brown of 1,3 mm tick on the hull and the black one of 1 mm tick on the bottom edge.
Both stick easily with the thinner and are softer than the evergreen giving easier the cut.

Thanks to all
Dario

Good to know that this plastic is easier to work with.
That makes much sense.

A little update showing the bottom details and the front bumpers.

Yes the turret is from a BA10, I would like to detail some of his interior from the gun to MG and the seats.

Thanks at all.
Dario

Update III

I'm back again with some new pics of my scratch project showing the turret taken from a BA 10 armored car with some improvements and corrections, I added the gun and built a ZB mg from a Bren.

Thanks for looking
Dario

Update IV

Unfortunately after a new comparison of drawings and photos I concluded that the drawings were wrong the height is crushed, at first time I was worried out all my work of the hull could to be redone. After the first moments of despair maybe not all was to waste I needed to lift up the hull adding at top and at the bottom 4,5mm before the vertical end, I removed the ceiling and to update also the parts of the front bumpers.





The changes are not so visible here with the welds done with the sprue.
