Lkw 1,5 t gl geschl is the designation of the closed (shelter type) version du camion Unimog 4×4. The model shown here is a bataillon signals véhicule avec external antenna mast. Similar Unimogs were used as field ambulances, workshop et command véhicules. The shelter is not entirely correct, it should have an external heater unit in place of the shelf for the camouflage net. The mistake may be hidden by draping a cammo net over of the shelter when the véhicule is parked. The stepladders at the side et rear doors are scratchbuilt from brass wire et inserted into the underside of the shelter floor. Rear lights et a holder de la plaque d’immatriculation d’arrière also need to be scratchbuilt to complete this véhicule.
