German "Hot Rod" Scout/Recon Car
Since I haven't been involved with WWII forums or a member on RCU & other tank forums for too long, I haven't really seen or researched nearly as many WWII pictures as most members might have looked over throughout the years.
So I was browsing a smaller website gallery I stumbled on while doing some research, which had some really nice photos (here), & I thought one photo was a very interesting scout / reconnaissance vehicle that I have not seen talked about before. Though I'm sure someone here probably has come across it prior to this, maybe even many times, & if that is the case I apologize for my severe lack of WWII vehicular knowledge http://www.rcuniverse.com/forum/js/f...wink_smile.gif, but I really didn't believe this particular car was used that often since there doesn't seem to be many photos around that I could find.
When I first saw it, I immediately pictured these Germans in my head, cruising around in this early to mid 1930's styled American hot rod coupe like Chevy & Ford were making at the time .... though this isn't one of those, I believe I eventually nailed down what make, model, & year it was, from doing a little more searching & comparing.
It was supposedly used during the Battle of the Bulge, & since it was a new one & different than the typical German scout / recon vehicles I've seen posted & discussed before, I decided to post it anyway to see if others could accurately identify it so I could test my own theory & conclusions from my couple hours research on it.
I could not find other pictures of this particular car being used by the Germans after searching for those couple hours, so I stopped looking for more, but for me it is one recon vehicle used by the Germans that had a definite " COOL " factor! http://www.rcuniverse.com/forum/js/f...ades_smile.gif
The original is the darker image, while the second photo was lightened to enhance some fine detail a little more.
So anyone else like this one too, give me a thumbs up? http://www.rcuniverse.com/forum/js/f...sn/thumbup.gif
And who will be the first to create one for a 1/16th battlefield?!?! http://www.rcuniverse.com/forum/js/f...ngue_smile.gif
