Keeping Things Running
A field maintenance unit was usually present in a typical WWII German Army division. Equipped with tools such as an A-frame crane, compressors, jacks and a variety of welding materials, they were tasked with keeping all-important vehicles moving and contributing to the cause. They typically moved together with the combat units they serviced, flitting around the front in their vital back-up role.
This is a 1/35 scale plastic model assembly kit recreating a WWII German field maintenance team and their equipment.
Set depicts a variety of equipment from A-frame crane, work table and compressor to various drum cans, jerry cans, gas cylinders and other tools.
Enameled wire and nylon string are included for use in recreating wire and cables.
A fine metal chain is included for use with the A-frame crane.
2 figures realistically depict crew members hard at work.
Combine this set with any 1/35 scale WWII German vehicle for a fine diorama.
Crane, compressor and other equipment parts are a product of Italeri.
