Another commission from Plasticpanzers has come up and this time it is the rear road wheels and suspension for an Opel Blitz Maultier. I found a couple pics of a resin conversion set for a 1/35th scale maultier and resized and cropped the image as a reference for my 1/6th scale masters. Here are a couple pics of the parts being made. The first is the 1/35th resin parts and the second is the 1/6th parts. Still a ways to go but I have parts to refine. I'm useing a couple spare 5 spoked roadwheels but final will have the 6 spoked roadwheels. As always comments are welcomed.... Harold

You are making a prototype suspension for what will be a plastic, 1/6th scale, half-track--very cool. Will the suspension articulate, with an actual spring, and a durable joint? Please keep us notified as your work is refined.
