It looks great - yet another winner.  The figures will clinch it.

They look great. The passengers look deep in conversation ("well Hans, it is quiet tonight...", Which is almost as bad as wearing a red shirt).

Haha - "Hans - did you hear something?"  "No, Werner - it's just the wind."

Great looking figures.  I think the passengers probably had to hang on to something, as these things seem to have lurched about quite a bit, but they look fine to me.

One of them does have his "free" hand on the back of the seat, the other one could do with moving his right arm off his leg and gripping the hand rail.

They both would be embarrassed if they lost their rifles.

By the way, are there fittings to hold the rifle behind the hand rail, I saw a modern photograph with rifles appearing to be held by brackets or something.

Not sure about the brackets, but we are going to do a stowage set for the Kettenkrad that will include lots of stuff...

UVS is right - there was a bracket on each of the rear handrails which held a rifle.  They'd be quite fragile in this scale, however.

Great looking figures .  Rifle clip in this scale - really, really small photo etch   :o . I hope the stowage will include personal gear  ( canteen , bread bag , mess kit etc ) to hang on the side of the Krad . Not much room in the back to have all that stuff attached to your belt .

It was more an optional rail with attached rifle.

Another set (more dynamic) of digital sculpts for our Kettenkard...


Enjoy!

Very dynamic.

Not quite sure what they are trying to achieve? My only thought is they are towing something heavy or stuck and are trying to prevent the front end digging in (because it looks like a bike I keep thinking that it would wheelie if you cranked the throttle but front wheel drive vehicles dip down if they are towing or the rear brakes are on).
