Thanks everyone

LWS is slowly moving on. I have mostly dealt with crew cabin side walls and these have been glued to the LWS now. Deck hatches and mechanical side indicators had to be partly rebuilt.
Also some minor details here and there. I have an idea, that all cabin hatches will be movable finally, so most of the hinges have to be rebuilt using styrene.

Here are the pics. Some of these show rebuilt details side by side to the original ones, so that would give you some idea of the work I have made here.

Hi

Continuing with dashboard. Bronco gives you the mid. version dashboard, which is considerably higher and will be visible trough the big front windows. Yet looking to the real thing, it shouldn't be visible anyhow. So I decided to cut the thing apart and lower the dashboard 2mm. In any other aspect I followed the mid. version fashion as there's no picture showing the actual early version dashboard.

Thanks, Maarten

There's little improvement on interior detailing to show:














The hinges of roof hatches are also completed. All cabin hatches will be movable.






And something to fill the interior:




This is what the model looks like at the moment:

Love yout PE work, the model looks wonderful.

Do you have a color scheme in mind? I have seen many unique and quite artistic scheme on these... I am dying to build one of these.

Thanks, David.

Mid and late version LWS's had some very unique color schemes indeed. There are records of three-tone LWS 19 71*, or LWS 5 26 with yellow stripes over the dark grey. Since there's no known photos for about ten late prod. LWS's, this model allows wide artistic freedom.

Yet all four early LWS's were painted in overall gray, except LWS 3 00, which was covered with probably blue-gray patches at the time of 1940 autumn in Belgium.

I'm going to make LWS 3 00, but in 1941 autumn, when it was used in the operations on Baltic sea islands Saaremaa and Hiiumaa (Insel Ösel and insel Dagö in german). Such time frame and -place is chosen, because I was born and raised in Hiiumaa.

At that time, LWS 3 00 was painted in overall gray. Trojca and Jaugitz have written, that all LWS's were probably painted using Kriegsmarine standard colors, since the vehicles were developed on Kriegsmarine initiative. So my overall gray will be slightly lighter than ordinary Panzer gray.


* NB: the first digit of LWS number is the production number - for example LWS 19 71 is the nineteenth LWS produced.


All info has been taken from Waldemar Trojca, Markus Jaugitz book "LWS Land-Wasser-Schlepper"

Cool!

I knew these were operated under the Kriegsmarine, so their gray is different. I think it adds interest the fact they you were born where some of them were used.
