Gentlemen, this project involves the Kettenkrad, scale 1/9, from Revell.

The interior was rebuilt as the early model. The kit is very bad, so I had to rebuilt the whole engine, pulleys, timing belt (with serial number), gearbox, exhaust system (with movable door) and many other itens.

The engine is a 1748cc Opel Olympia, the carburetor is the trademark SOLEX and radiator is of the trademark WERKEL. I also made the whole system of torsion bars.

Well, over 500 pieces were made...

Hi Cesar... Wow that is some really nice work .. Man, that kit is old . It first came out as an Esci release wayyyy back when I first started modelling and I remember reading in an old Military Modeller magazine that it was not an easy kit to build .. I guess things haven't changed and you are really doing a great job.. Good luck and keep us all updated.. I'll be watching.

Hi Rick,

Thanks for your visit and comment. Truly this kit is very old and has many errors, especially in the interior. It is a mix of initial and final version. I chose to make the initial version.

I appreciate your interest and I am glad you enjoyed.

Cheers
