Interesting project, Mark.

The outdoor exhibits of the museum in Bad Oeynhausen have been slowly rotting away for almost a decade. IIRC, the museum closed its gates in 2007/2008. The Fuchs gives me some riddles, though. Maybe a prototype vehicle.

yes its long closed

and indeed there is somthing with the fuchs but for me iff it will look close enough i will be happy

for me its just having fun and learning new stuff

All good, mate. That's what it's all about - having fun, honing your skills and breaking new grounds.

I was just curious about the "oddball" TPz 1 "Fuchs" and SpPz 2 "Luchs" vehicles. So I did a little digging deeper and what I came up with makes me really, really sad since these two rotten hulks are significant technical milestones. IMHO, these two vehicles should have been restored and displayed at the Panzermuseum Munster or at the MHM Dresden. It's a shame...

In fact, the Fuchs in Bad Oeynhausen was the very first 6x6 Daimler-Benz prototype - the grandfather of the Fuchs if you will. Daimler-Benz won the competition against the so-called "Gemeinschaftsbuero" design. One of the "GB" prototypes is on display at the Panzermuseum Munster.

First (one-off) Daimler-Benz TPz 1 6x6 prototype:

(that's the one that's been slowly rotting away in Bad Oeynhausen)

Later Daimler-Benz TPz 1 pre-production vehicle:

(pretty much as we know it today)

Outgunned Gemeinschaftsbuero 6x6 TPz 1 prototype:

"SpPz 2 Luchs" genesis in a nutshell:
Two competing designs based on a common Porsche concept. Competitors: "Gemeinschaftsbuero" (Buessing, Henschel, KHD, Krupp and MAN) and Daimler-Benz. Again, "GB" lost out to the Daimler-Benz design. The final "Gemeinschaftsbuero" SpPz 2 prototype, dubbed "G4", is currently on display at the Tank Museum Munster. The alleged "Luchs" at the Auto Technica Museum Bad Oeynhausen is in fact the penultimate "G3" prototype - a fairly different animal.

Gemeinschaftsbuero SpPz 2 prototype "G3":

(overall hull sloping and the rear of the vehicle differ significantly from the winning Daimler-Benz design)

Nice progress on the two armor kits and glad to see nothing is missing your eye on changing the details on the Mo-8MT. Sure looks like at full throttle on this project.
