We may be sending these WWII Russian figures off to Vancouver for painting, but they'll eventually reach Thailand - because that's where DJD Miniatures conducts operations...

Does anyone make a 28mm German Staff Car? Mercedes Benz, Steyr or otherwise non-kubelwagon.

Warlord makes a Horsch field car and a Protze too I believe.

Company B/JTFM have made a Volkswagen in the past. Not sure of availability right now.

Tamiya makes a 1/48th Citroen kit.

Using this in Google brings up a lot of results including several from TMP… :)

Rubicon Models have announced a Citroen Traction Avante in 1:56 in their new soon to be released new resin range.

Tamiya offers several in 1/48 if that's your vehicle scale. :-)

Was hoping that would be out by now, but no sign of the resin stuff as yet. I would also like a nice open top Mercedes for a kill Hitler/Heydrich/sundry Nazi bigwig scenario.

Heer 46 has a SdKfz 247 Ausführung B.

Intended as a command car for recce units.

Here at Fantasyworld:

Perhaps you will find they made a conversion for a staff car from this one somewhere.

Battle Honors makes a Mercedes staff car with a certain
German leader as passenger.

Heydrich was being driven in a Mercedes-Benz 320 Convertible B, which frankly doesn't look prestigious enough. When you're talking 28mm staff car, you're well into skirmish/RPG country. Assassinating a Nazi in something like that would be like a swashbuckler abducting a female from a mail coach.

What does the Red Skull use in the Captain America movie?

Adding to what chicklewis posted above. Company B also makes staff cars from other countries. The German confiscated a lot of Italian vehicles after Sicily.

Company B Fiat 508

I was thinking of building the 6-wheel Mercedes staff car, but wondered whether the market might be a bit limited. Any interest? Talking 1/56, of course.

Fred Cartwright09 Feb 2018 1:49 p.m. PST

Talking 1/56, of course.

Sounds great. As I said ideal for a kill Hitler scenario!

The New Millennium 170V is closer to 1/45 scale, pre-painted.

Anyscale Models make a Citroen; Germans used lots of them.
