Wagons Ho!

I have been going over my book collection and prowling the Internet to find photos of WWII German wagons. I wanted to see what conversion and detail possibilities there are for the new HaT WWII German Wagons. Here is what I discovered:



HF wagons with and without spare wheels on the back end


HF wagons being towed by 2 humpy camels


HF wagons in grey and in camouflage


HF wagons with camouflage canvas


HF wagons with improvised solid roofs, made of wood


HF wagons with 2 or 4 or 6 all with or light grey horse teams


HF wagons with improvised seats


HF wagons towing 37mm ATG


HF wagons towed by oxen, camels, mules, donkeys, horses, ponies


HF wagons and HF7 wagons with Red Cross on them


HF wagons displaying the German national cross on the sides


HF wagons commonly carry a bucket on the side of the wagon


HF wagons piled high with hay so teamster rides on pile of hay



Lots of opportunities to do conversions of the HaT wagons and I am looking forward to getting a bunch of them.



Not HaT



Lots of machine gun wagons. There was a two wagon combination that held two machine guns in a combination, they appear much more common than I expected.



Artillery wagons with up to 14 & 18 horse teams


Limber wagons with 2 of the limber wagons together, Revell type



Large numbers of HF-7 wagons



2 & 4 wheel wagons with essentially sticks on each side of a barrel with the barrel as the body of the wagon barrel is made of wood



British Napoleonic HaT Rocket Wagons in use by Germans with 1 horse



75mm stumpf being towed by horses



Hearse wagon in use as hearse



Plenty of work for the work horses to do!
