Nuts and Bolts 28 is due for release on December 1st this year. This time around it will concentrate on the Gleisketten LKWs "Maultier" (Sd.Kfz. 3). Take a look inside to see a sample of what will be in this book.
Here are some details on the book from the publishers website that I am sure you will find of help.

Although almost 22,000 vehicles were built during the latter half of WWII, it seems as this vehicle class was neglected for the last fifty years in all publications. As leading model companies have now detected a market for soft-skinned vehicles it is time for Nuts & Bolts to release an in-depth publication on these vehicles. As ever we will publish a sound mixture of wartime shots to bring our readers an impression of their deployment during the war, detail photos of existing vehicles in museums and private collections and how to model the four versions by Tony Greenland. Also, Blue prints from John Rue and camouflage artwork from Laurent Lecocq complete the publication.

Date of publication December 1st 2011

I would like to know if there are images of post-war Maultier Mercedes with metal cab...

That one has wooden cab, I have seen this image. I am interested in another version. I've heard that some of them were used after war in Germany, but I haven't seen evidence for that.

I can tell you that there are no obviously post war photos included, and no photos of any preserved examples of the Mercedes. I will be reviewing this book in detail in the very near future.

Just received my copy of #28. Well ahead of a December release, eh? LOL. People, if you're a fan of the Maultier, then this book is for you. It pretty much covers all makes and models, conversions, special purpose, and some in theatre back shop modifications. Great exposure of units/info/small details that describe most photos which leaves you saying..."wow, I didn't see that...or...wow, I didn't know that"...about that specific vehicle shown or featured. Tony's models of course add a modern day peek at WW2 coloring and his mastery of the build, all at the same time. I have plans of multiple Maultier/Blitz builds in the future and this book will cetainly be an invaluable sourse of ideas, dreams, and features of vehicles never seen before. Highly recommended...worth every dime!
