One horse-power farm cart in Wehrmacht Service

Statistics point out that almost 80% from the WWII German Army land transport was horse-drawn, not only standard vehicles but also plenty of civil carts and wagons being put into requisition by Wehrmacht. The present vehicle tries to portray a farm cart put used by Wehrmacht, as it appears in a reference image shot probably on the Eastern front. The general aspect of the horse shows that most probably it was not an army one, but taken from a peasant for serving with the German Army (common practice in Wehrmacht).
The cart is scratch-built and the horse and figure are Preiser but heavily converted for matching as close as possible with the real soldier and horse.
