Default Hf.7 Horse Drawn Steel Field Wagon

After building tracked vehicles and soft skin vehicles, I decided to try something different. Much of WWII German supply support moved in horse-drawn wagons, both of steel and wood construction.


A word of warning: Do not attempt this model with the horses option unless you are a skilled jeweler with all the skills and tools associated with the profession. Many of of the brass etched parts are minute and impossible to affix for normal people like you and me. The attaching of the harness for the horses was a major challenge which required compromises with the photo etch directions in order to maintain my sanity.


The model does come with an option wherein a steel tubular, triangular tow bar is provided for when the wagon was towed by a vehicle - if I ever do another one of these wagons I will most certainly opt for the steel tow bar.
