Promoting Excellence in HO Scale Vehicle Modeling

Dusseldorf Airport MAN/Rosenbauer Panther - By Dirk Wieczorek

Duesseldorf Airport received two of these MAN/Rosenbauer Panther Crashtrucks in 2003. Dirk Wieczorek built this model using a resin kit from RMM (Merlau). The whole top of the kit was made new and includes the fitting of a working tower for extinguishing fires in an airplane cabin or higher turbines like on a MD-11. The whole tower was made by Evergreen styrene shapes and can be raised and turned for 90 degrees like the original. Detailing on the model was also improved with decals that Dirk made. Also shown in Photo Gallery 233 and 234.
