MiniArt have a new kit under development that really ticks one of my boxes.
Kit #35147 is of the L1500A (Kfz.70) Mercedes German Personnel Car and contains 467 parts incl. PE.
The L1500 A 4x4 and L1500 S 4x2 trucks were developed by Mercedes-Benz Company in 1941.
The vehicle was classified same as Steyr 1500A and Horch Typ. The basic type of body became Kfz.70, designed for transporting of 7 person including driver. For bad weather condition the body was equipped with retractable top and canvas panel, which could be settled on doors and sides. Trucks Mercedes-Benz L 1500A with Kfz. 70 were widely used, frequently trucks were as heavy staff cars.
Also different bodies were based on L 1500A and L 1500S chassis, particularly fire trucks, radio cars and ambulances were produced on the L 1500A and L 1500S bases. More often for radio cars and ambulances were used 4x2 chassis. I suspect that we’ll see a full range based on this chassis from MiniArtL 1500A trucks were produced from June of 1941 till July 1943, were produced 4900 trucks. Production of L 1500S started same in June of 1941, but was continued till July of 1944 and were produced 4100 trucks.
Sprue shots to follow.
No figures but I reckon MB’s new ones ‘Where’s the Damned Roads’ would fit nicely with a little tweaking?
