It is a German starter cart - proper name being Anlassgerät (Benzinelektroaggregat) 600 W auf Karren, zerlegbar.

And this Anlassgerät is kitted in 1/32nd by Wingz Aero Products  :smiley:

Looks like they're rescaling their 1/24 kit to 1/35. I hope they do the same for the firemen: This set and this one

Possibly modify one of the AZ Model Kits:

It sure was. But if they make that He 70G kit, somebody will have to make a conversion set for Roll-Royce's G-ADZF!

The kit is evidently meh, was overpriced when new and examples on ebay are over 100USD.

Also the kit does not have the offset cockpit and canopy which would require a lot of work.

I'll pass.
