Something a little more unusual with today’s post – we have a little group of Borgward Demolition Carriers, officially designated Schwerer Ladungsträger Borgward B IV (heavy explosive carrier Borgward B IV), as used by the Wehrmacht in 1943. I’ll admit, I’d never heard of these things before I saw an inexpensive listing for them (with no picture) which I then googled and then found in the Ghost Panzers book. I did know of the Goliath, though not the Borgward.
I went with a simple camo pattern on these – insignificant models like this are a good place to test this sort of thing on – and turns out I’m pretty happy with the result, so this may well end up being my Mid War Eastern Front look for the Germans, though I do also like look of “classic” German Grey Panzers – perhaps I’ll do a mix. No drivers on these, as they represent the “final” segment of their use in combat – remote controlled rather then manually driven.
And to finish off, here’s a pic showing just how teeny-tiny these models are – that’s a Plastic Soldier Company Panzer III next to it, as well as a battlefront Panther.
