This is my final prototype. I lowered the front edge of the front fenders a little. I am unhappy with the window texture. They are just to bright. I am thinking a glass texture with a brown tint would be better. Anyway, here are a few shots. Included in one of the shots is a Kubelwagen by “Rawen” for size comparison. It was a 1:100 scale model resized to 1:72 scale. It comes with a Tiger I as well. My son will be happy when I finally get that built.
You can get the final model in jpg on the “Old School” page on this blog.
Quick notes: Cut out all of the black areas and discard. The rear fenders make sure you do the black areas out first and then the outer edge. I found it easier to cut the rear fenders with a knife being careful to leave enough paper to hold the piece in place. Use 65-67 pound paper. Some of the lines are not meant to be cut! Print out at 85ppi for the correct scaling.

Those are really great. Great crafting. Paper models can be hard to execute sometimes.
The Horch turned out nice. If you e-mail me, I’ll send the files for our unreleased version. Cheers from PTA….
