War in the Wheat

As is currently playing out in Ukraine, thanks to the murderous dick-bag Vladimir Putin, war can have a catastrophic effect on food production. But food production must continue, even when an invading enemy is standing amongst your crops.

Recent bloggee SirLuftwaffles travels back eighty years to the last time a murderous dick-bag brought war to Western Europe, with this wonderful scene depicting an Opel Blitz 3-ton truck parked in occupied France during the Second World War.

SirLuftwaffles has made free building instructions for the truck available and there’s more to see at his photostream. Click the link to take a look.

Lego Opel Blitz TruckThis magnificent wartime Opel Blitz supply truck is the work of Vibor Cavor aka Veeborg on Flickr. We’ve featured a few of his models on The Lego Car Blog before, but this one made our jaws hit the floor in awe. It might just be the best truck we’ve ever blogged. We can’t come close to doing it justice here, so head over to Vibor’s photostream for all the images and details. We’ll see you there.
