    Itīs raining today and we will go out for hunting some gifts for the family. Yes, the shops are open on Sunday. Thatīs not normal but these dayīs itīs allowed.
    But before we have to do something MV related. We check the on board stuff we still get with the truck.Wheel chains, chains for recovery, cable pulley,90 feed additional steel cable, blackout set for windows,mirrors, headlamps, etc.. Repaint the wheel lug wrench and the clutch pedal extension you have to use if no air power clutch assistant is available and youīre leg is not strong enough.

    The box with the toggle switch is for communication with the troops in the back because they canīt knock at the rear window if something goes wrong.
    So they have to give a signal to the driver. The Y-Pipe you install for getting warm air from the Diesel heater to warm up (in about 1.5 hours) the aircooled engine and the batterie compartment if temp is under -10°F (-25°C). Next days we have to repaint the wheel chocks.

    Quite possible, we are no gun nuts but we read that they build the MG42 with some modifications from WWII to the 1970er and longer.

    This gunring is produced in the 70th.

    Got to admit, this was the hardest vote yet. Too many super nice trucks at once!


    There is a company here in the Kulmbach area, that make perfict replica MG42, MP40, StG44 and something else. Fine, fine weapons.

    Default Needs its own childrens book

    You got to love this truck, couldn't resist adding the eyes. When I first saw the pictures of this truck, my first thought was this thing deserves having a childrens book written about it. Maybe something like hauling feed to Santa's Raindeer during a blizzard. You can just see it driving to the North Pole.

    Cheers Phil
