Hi Kiteman,
Could it be a WWII German 'Puma' armoured car?
Cheers,

So, on with this mystery model and the joys of sub assemblies and sub-sub assemblies. Here is the build up of the rear axles arrangement. Nicely detailed, several sub-sub assemblies and an interesting upside down spring arrangement to boot. As an engineer I find this axle arrangement interesting. See what you think, and.....do you know what it is yet??
