Germania Figurine offers a 3D print on demand German Wolf "Jeep" and I would like to make it as a German Serval as portrayed on page 42 in Osprey's book Special Operation Patrol Vehicles and need to know what all is required
Cheers

Hi Charles,

building the AGF Serval is complicated, no matter what scale your build in. First, the SERVAL is a long wheel base Mercedes truck. It also features commercial style rims. Biggest problem is to get the right references to build. SERVAL is only used with German Army Kommando Spezialkräfte. And these guys keep a VERY low profile.

I guess Charles is talking about 1/72nd scale stuff. Talking about the (in)famous Azimut Production website, it looks like it's MIA...

I've found a few more Serval pics on Flickr :

Wikipedia article with some basic measurements.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/LIV_(SO)_Serval

The book Fahrzeuge der Bundeswehr seit 1955 from Motorbuch Verlag has a tiny sideview in it.

If you don`t care for a specific scale, there is a die-cast model of the Serval in HO gauge scale.
