1:35 Maybach engines-Do you have one to spare?
Hi to one and all,
As it says do you have a spare or unused or to be unseen Maybach engine which looks like this
It is the engine for the Panzer IB which is a straight 6 cylinder water cooled and was also used in a long list of Pz IBs
15 cm Schweres Infanteriegeschütz 33 Selbstfahrlafette auf Panzerkampfwagen I Ausfuhrüng B
2 cm Flak 38 auf Selbstfahrlafette Panzerkampfwagen I Ausfuhrüng B Sd.Kfz. 101
4.7 cm PaK(t) Selbstfahrlafette auf Panzerkampfwagen I Ausfuhrüng B Sd.Kfz. 101
Flammenwerfer Panzerkampfwagen I Ausfuhrüng B
kleiner Panzerbefehlswagen Panzer I Ausf. B Sd.Kfz. 265
Ladungsleger auf Panzerkampfwagen I Ausfuhrüng B
ohne Aufbau Panzerkampfwagen I Ausfuhrüng B
Panzerkampfwagen I Ausfuhrüng B Sd.Kfz. 101
Panzerkampfwagen I Ausfuhrüng D VK602
It is also in other early German 1/2 tracks primarily the SdKfz 250 as the Maybach HL 42 LR.
As I'm sure you have noticed the 2 engines do look quite different
According to all the research I have done, the engines are supposed to be similar in look as the 42 is just a re-bore of the 38 with the numbers referring to the cylinder capacity in liters I.E. 3.8 and 4.2 litre engines. The BHP is supposed to be the same but the torque is better with the bigger engine, that's why it was used in the early 1/2 tracks such as
Sd.Kfz. 250 Alte leichte Schützenpanzerwagen
Sd.Kfz. 250/1 Alte leichte Schützenpanzerwagen
Sd.Kfz. 250/2 Alte leichter Fernsprechpanzerwagen
Sd.Kfz. 250/3 Alte leichte Funkpanzerwagen
Sd.Kfz. 250/4 Alte leichte Beobachtungspanzerwagen
Sd.Kfz. 250/5 Alte leichte Beobachtungspanzerwagen
Sd.Kfz. 250/6 Alte leichter Munitionspanzerwagen
Sd.Kfz. 250/7 Alte leichte Schützenpanzerwagen schwerer Granatwerfer
Sd.Kfz. 250/9 Alte leichte Schützenpanzerwagen 2 cm KwK 38
Sd.Kfz. 250/10 Alte leichte Schützenpanzerwagen 3.7 cm PaK
Sd.Kfz. 250/11 Alte leichte Schützenpanzerwagen schwerer Panzerbüchse 41
Sd.Kfz. 250/12 Alte leichte Messtruppanzerwagen
Sd.Kfz. 252 leichte Gepanzerte Munitionskraftwagen
Sd.Kfz. 253 leichte Gepanzerte Beobachtungskraftwagen.
The Maybach HL 42 is available via Great Wall Hobby but it isn't quite what I'm after.
T cut a very long story short, I am planning to build a Tristar PzKpfw 1A ohne Aufbau with a IB to complement it, which will need a full interior and I would like the engine to be able to show the difference between them.
If anyone has the Maybach 38 and is interested in passing it on, please let me know I am open to negotiate, but I haven't found one anywhere yet, though it could be in a kit i haven't been able to trace as yet.
Sorry for being long winded, but I have now reached a dead end, so I thought I would open the process to one and all.
Thank you in advance for any and all help, its more than welcome.
