WWII Horch Telephone Car
Posted by milwaukeejohn on Tuesday, December 25, 2018 6:38 PM

First of all, happy holidays to all of the wonderful members of this great forum. Your help over the last year has been invaluable, and I wish all of you a prosperous and joyous 2019. 

I recently purchased a cool 1/72 scale resin vehicle from one of my favorite Ebay sellers.  It is described as “Resin WWII German Horch 1A Telephone Car (KFZ.23)”.

I thought that it had the makings for an interesting diorama.  However, I am having a hard time finding solid intel online about this Horch version. When was it produced, what units used it, where was it used, etc.  Can anyone out there offer some insight or point me to a good resource?  Thanks!

   You can try calameodownloader, followed by your vehicle designation and see if that brings up anything.

      Also may try google with the vehicle type then "varients" or specific type.

     Sometimes really obscure or modified vehicles aren't well documented or photographed, finding info can be next to impossible, at a minimum very time consuming.

         You may also try looking up German engineer or Pioneer vehicles, may get a hit from that. Good luck, happy modeling and Happy New Year.

we're modelers it's what we do

This is a Wiky link that might be helpfull:

My understadning is that what you have there is a purpose built special.

Have not found anything on this one in particular

But there is a book published by Wings and Wheels Publications:

Horch in Detail Horch 108 Type 1a and 40, Schwerer Einheits-pkw Als Gruppenwagen Kfz. 18/21 Photo Manual for Modelers Paperback – 2001
