Hello,
If anyone is interested, I have just completed my 1st full kit. My good friend, Juergen Kurz, has supplied me with the technical drawings, text data and enthusiasm related to it and I otherwise couldn't have got this kit off the ground!

This kit is also the 1st of it;s kind in we believe any scale.

The kit is of the German 2-axle Air Compressor Trailer (Position 506) for the V2 rocket units.

I am a one-man show, and the kits are 'limited-run'. I will cast per order, if interested.
Thanks,

Hi Tony!
Good idea and execution, no doubt. I'm impatient to see the trailer built and painted! Do you think to expand the V2 servicing trailers range?
BTW, I'm afraid somebody may blame you for selling less than you have promised. I see one pair of wheels is stated with 9 holes and in fact they are 8 only
Keep 'em coming!
Cheers!

Ilian,

if Tony only releases half of the information I ve provided to him as kits you ll be happy!
(e.g. pump trailer for alcohol (towed behind Opel B Stoff truck), T Stoff preheater trailer
(behind T-Stoff truck), cable carrier trailers, workshop trailer to name just a few).
BTW my drawings which Tony has a based on originals from Wehrmacht technical drawing boards

... yes, that was a typo. Good catch! I corrected the parts data, the wheels are indeed 8 and 6 spoke wheels. This is only my 2nd kit (and 1st full kit) in my range. I have already figured out a better way to cast these parts, so when the mold gets to the end of it's use (and there is still interest in this kit), I will be able to reposition the parts to save on supplies and time casting.

I have plenty more ideas and, yes, there will be more servicing trailers for the V2 range. My good friend Juergen has supplied me with all kinds of data on them. I will have the compressor trailer completion photos posted in a day or two and will post the info here.

The next kit up will be a one-off field mod. of a German workshop trailer based on an old flatbed trailer they had in WW2.

cheers,
Tony
