This title looks like a regular Nuts & Bolts reference book, but it marks a milestone. It is, in fact, the very first Nuts & Bolts title that focuses exclusively on wheeled trucks.
The trucks in question are commercial lorries in service during the 1930s with the Reichwehr and later with the Wehrmacht. Although these vehicles were never designed for the torturous trials of war, many laboured on until 1945 or, more likely, until their own destruction beforehand.
This title is presented in the usual useful Nuts & Bolts format with bilingual German and English text, glossy high quality paper and 224 pages plus covers.
A historical and technical development section is followed by special bodies, camouflage and markings and modelling.
Bussing-NAG, Henschel and Krupp 6x4 trucks are covered in detail with hundreds of wartime photos, walk around pictures, plans and colour profiles.
The concluding Modelling section contains several inspiring builds covered in text and coloured photos.
This is another excellent production by Nuts & Bolts, and it is great to see them expanding their analysis into the realm of wheeled vehicles.
Thanks to Nuts & Bolts for the sample http://www.nuts-bolts.de
