Another looking armored car. I don't know much about this AC. How about a little history lesson?

The kit seems good in general. I think some time will pass before I approach a whole resin kit since it's too expensive!

Sweetness....this looks like it should be fun. I love the tires on this thing, and the markings are nice and bright.

Cool

Some history about the vehicle...(in english heheh)

Pantserwagen M.36 & M.38:

In 1935-36, the Dutch took delivery of 12 Landsverk L180 from Sweden and gave them the designation Pantserwagen Model 36. These vehicles were used to equip Le eskadron Pantserwagen (1EPaw) stationed in s'Hertogenbosch. In 1938, a second squadron (2EPaw) was formed and stationed in Amersfoort.

This unit was equipped with 12 Landsverk L182 (also from Sweden and designated Pantserwagen Model 38 by the Dutch Army). along with this shipment came 2 M.38 command vehicles, one for each squadron. Both the M.36 and M.38 were medium armored cars armed with a Bofors 37mm gun and 2 Lewis 7.92 machine guns, but their armor was thin.

The command vehicles only had dummy guns. Early during the German invasion, the 1st EPaw operated in Gelderland and on the Grebbe Line. They were later ordered to fall back to Fortress Holland, a naturally defensible redoubt within Holland.

The 2nd EPaw's armored cars were stationed at the airports of Shipol (Amsterdam), Ypenburg (The Hague), and Waalhaven (Rotterdam). These M.38s, as well as the M.39s of the 3rd EPaw operated in the province of Zuid Holland (South Holland) where the majority of German operations took place.

When the country capitulated, some of its armored cars were destroyed by their crews, although most were captured by the Germans and put to use as police vehicles. The Danish army also bought 2 Landsverk L180 from Sweden but they are not believed to have seen action.

Regards, Paul

Lawrence: I think Paul has already answered your quest for a history lesson

Giacomo:The kit is very good actualy, and not too expensive, as i've purchased it second hand (like most of my models ) for a measly €20,- New it would be around the €70,- mark.

Rick, The markings are the reason why i'm finaly starting on this (and the fact that Twenot has a groupbuild with "reconaisance vehicles" as subject) The kit comes without markings, and as soon as these AM decals apeared i decided to do this one

Fletcher: So do I

Marc & Paul, thanks for the history lessons
Jan

Hi Jan!

Now what is it with you and all the strange Armored Cars? This one looks cool as hell. I will be looking forward to new updates.
