    I am interested in bmwr12 pieces and gnome rhone 22 pieces aswell.
    but in overall, You can offer me anything from ww2 era. I might be interested.

    You can write to me via email Habu00@hotmail.com or via private message.

    Shipping the items won't be a problem- they don't weigh that much so it shouldn't be expensive.

    Location of the fh2 parts- Estonia.

    Take care,

    Greetings, friend..!
    Strictly out of curiosity, how can you tell that this hardware is Military and not Agricultural/Civilian? Are there tell-tale markings? Thanks!

    Hey Glenn!

    thank You for the question!

    My only explanation is, that those carriage details came from the exact area, where the German military (during ww2, 1944) was transporting their supplies. They were ambushed by the Russians, so all the equiptment and carriages/wagons were left behind and blown up/destroyed (so the Russians couldn't use them either), while retreating.
    To be said, I cannot be sure, that ALL of these pieces are 100% FH2 pieces, because they used all kind of different carriages and they could've been mixed up a bit during the "destroying" time.. But most of them for sure.
    There are no markings on them, as far as I have looked and seen.
    I can also put up some comparison pictures, where there is a picture of my detail and an another picture of a restaured FH2 carriage detail. They would be a match.

    If any more out-of-curiosity-questions (or any other kind of questions), please, do ask! I will try to answer them as good as I can.

    Take care,

    Haha, no
    this is one hardcore puzzle without instructions...
    The easiest way to put it together is when You have a friend who has already built one/similar of these. And also it helps, when you search pictures from the allmighty internet

    I have done my research a while ago, so I have some idea, which part goes where. But there are still details that I can't identify where they go. And I also do not know anyone in the Baltic area, who has put one together... So I can't ask any advice or wooden detail measurements, etc.

    Take care,
