  • Fallschirmjager Bike Rider, Winter Eastern Front (RM204)
All the above are resin kits that may be used with 1/9 scale BMW R75 and Zundapp KS750 motorcycles. These may be ordered direct from the Reedees Miniatures site.

I have the AMT/ERTL Blueprinter kit. Got it as a gift. My only suggestion would be to replace the cables. BUT-the kit I rec'd has a complete set of PE: Food tin, canteen, Entrenching tool, etc., just not bundled together. You also get an MG34, a janky FG42, that's made for the mount in the side car. Ammo tins also, 2 mashers, and the Jerry Can. Just no straps. It does not come with whatever those are on the lower left. Mermite cans?

Sorry, hit return to start a new para... My advice? if you can find the blueprinter model-or inquire with the seller to see if this sprue is in the kit, then don't bother buying this set. Why can they not come up with a driver in normal attire????

There are some kits that include these items mentioned but they are very poor quality and only slightly resemble the real items, this resin set is a massive upgrade from the original kit items. I agree with you a rider in Normal attire is a good idea, I have already released a rider in standard Heer uniform but he is standing as apposed to riding the bike, I will be releasing more figures in the future in all types of uniforms/theatres. Not sure what you are referring to as Mermite cans, the lower left are 5Ltr water containers and the items on the sidecar front are MG assault magazines in their carrier. Regards Steve

Thank you sir. Mermite cans are what we had in the Army for transporting food rations. I figured that the Jerry can was too small to be a fuel can.

Now I understand what you mean by Mermite cans, we had something similar in the British army for transporting hot food. Actually might be a good project for some more bike stowage.

I have the R75 from Lion Roar but I have will not spend money for this stowage kit.

The Lion Roar is 1/35, this stowage set is for 1/9 scale bikes.
