I was too lazy to check if this had been posted before. Resicast? 1/35th. Very adaptable to civilian use.

Not sure if its a long gone model or not released yet but its not shown in the Resincast catalogue at Historex best bet to enquire is at http://www.historexagents.com/shop/hxshop.php you will find them helpful more than Resincast direct But you can bet its bloody expensive and quality wise looks like the dog has chewed it like most of there other junk they turn out !!

Don't listen to Barney . He is just an old misery . However , that is not to say he is not right .

   It is a work in progress and is supposed to be released this month . So who knows when it will be available  http://www.resicast.com/slideshow-35/slideshow-109/index.html

One of those evenings when you just can't summon up the energy to do some modelling, so trawled through the web sites. Found Wespemodels (wespemodels.ro) who do a 1/35th scale Fordson Thames tractor unit (32.00 Euros on their web page). Its in resin -looks a bit basic but could possibly be "improved". They also do Fords and Dodges which appear very "civilian".

Airfix makes a 1/32 scale WW1 period London double decker bus. With research may be converted to a troop carrier being used on the continent, also as a gun platform and a pigeon loft. I understand that Airfix makes or did a version of a troop carrier but photos IMO not so great, better off converting. Tamiya makes a 1/35 Kubelwagen that could be converted into the Volkswagen "Thing" a 70s version.
Cheers Eh!

Takom Model has anounced 2 type of (VW) T3 Transporter Trucks in 1:35.

Especially the 4 door cab with the flat bed could be very usefull in a civilian diorama.

looks like it is ready to be used in a diorama of Killdozer (in the book it was a D7).

You may ask yourself: "Well, how did I get here?"

recently saw a picture of a mini excavator on a small 54mm figure diorama but unfortunately could not make a decent photo.

Anybody know who produces such a kit ?
