Konrad Molin Wehrmacht version 1

Mr. Molin drew these without being able to measure a real example, as he did with all his other drawings. (originally only one side was drawn) His formidable painstaking work on the other drawings is so exact, that I believe these to be exact. Interior and top are planned.

Konrad Molin Wehrmacht version 2

Mr. Molin drew only the front and one side. The others are constructed with his drawings, Kostron's drawings and fotos. Interior and top are planned.

John C. Drake Wehrmacht version 2

Mr. Drake published an article in the famous magazine "Military Modelling" in 1978. See the models list for pictures of his marvelous 1:76 scale scratch model.

Nothing else is known to me about this drawing/illustration. The extra pull/push coupling under the frontbumper and all the other details make this an excelent, adequate illustration.

GTU bus, A. Steenmeijer, Utrecht

A nice try at a GTU bus was build, photographed and drawn by Mr. Steenmeijer. It was published as an article in the Dutch periodical "Modelbouwer" in April 1986. Mr. Steenmeijer used the Italeri 1:35 Opel Blitz 4x2 kit and lengthens the chassis, so I hope these drawings are exact. His article describes the colors of the bus, so while brushing up his drawings I had to fill in the color.
Right - G. Rutka

Polish 5 window G. Rutka

A nice illustration of a 5 window line bus from MZK-line in Poland. I would love to find out more. The lines of this bus are very nice. Unfortunately I have not been able to find more about Mr. Rutka or this bus.

Leipzig doubledecker

The Leipzig public transportation used these doubledecker busses. Coachbuilder "Fahrzeugbau Schumann" from Werdau build them. See the semi-trailer information for full data.
Chassis - Konrad Molin

Konrad Molin chassis

Mr. Molin drew the bus from pictures, and knowing his great love of technique, he would have drawn more views if he had measured a chassis. Still it's the best we have at present moment.
Chassis - Factory

Factory drawing chassis

A big surprise from France. A copy of a genuine 1937 factory drawing. Alain (Alby Miniatures) sends me a set of drawings and an article on the semitrailer bus(with a picture and drawings). Konrad Molin would have loved it. All his work in the 1970's on German scrapyards in measuring wrecks did not turn up one bus, and here it is, a complete drawing! Incredible!

Construction and other

From old model articles by a Mr. H. Kostron (Modell Magazine 4/83) and Mr. Geof Watson some usable drawings. The articles had more, but they didn't stand a chance against the drawings of Mr. Molin. The last one is from Mr. John C. Drake from an article in Modelling Magazine 1978
