That's a tough order, John. I'd like to see one myself, either with or without the crane. All I have is this model from Tracks & Troops but I don't know if it is based on fact or fantasy. Perhaps this is the project you are starting?

Hey Max, thats the same thing i'm working on.
Its listed on the kfz der werhmacht site, but no pics.
There was, for a short time a facebook group that was nothing but german maintanence and engineering stuff that had photos of it, but was taken down, and like a dumbass i never took any screenshots.
For the crane itself, i went to super hobby site and they have the 1/35 igb truck/crane instructions posted, so a little bit more info can be had there.
If i find more i'll post it.
John

Hello,
in my opinion the SdAh 14 is a very simple towing axle.
Please have a look on the pictures.
Best regards
Henning

Hello Henning, the kdf wer. site list 2 sd.ah.14 trailers, one with the towing crane, the other is for bridging equipment. The photos you provided would be the later it would seem. thanks for posting them.

Edit to add..after looking closer at the photos, those look like some sort of tow dolly. So maybe for bridging purposes, but who knows. Anyways, more interesting stuff for the this fine site.

Hi John

...hmmm you are right with the 2 different trailers, but its not so easy. If you read very exactly the second SdAh 14, there is nothing with a crane in the designation.
In my opinion its more an tow dolly.
may be we get here more infos, pictures or exact knowledge ... :wink:
ohhh I found it, please scrawl to the middle.... :)

Hi Henning nnd John.
I can see where that little "dolly" in Henning's pic could clearly be described as "für Abschleppzwecke" (recovery) as described in Kfzderwhermacht. Was there actually a crane in that Facebook pic that you recall, John?
Cheers,
Max

Here is the Sd.Anh.106 (Backoffenanhänger) from the Museum of Battle Glory,Yambol,Bulgaria:

Sd.Anh.106 Yambol_1.jpg
And its production number plate:

My reading is: this is the 124th Sd.Anh.106 produced in 1940 by Werner & Pfleiderer(WP-40-124)

Hello,
Very interessting, is this a trailer from the WH or was it delivered to the Bulgarian army?
Why is the plate in kyrillish letters?
Best regards

Hi Henning,

The trailer belonged to a batch of 47 Backanhänger delivered to Bulgaria in the last decade of June 1943.
Highly likely it was also in use with the WH before arriving in Bulgaria.

The plate contains what we call today Quick Start instructions and safety requirements in Bulgarian languages pre-1945 spelling:
