SKP Model has released a decal sheet that provides alternative markings for a captured Büssing-NAG L4500S.
Decals for Büssing-NAG (SKP 286). Available are options for three marking schemes:

Scheme A. This Büssing was collected as abandoned in the field and comandeered by US authorities governing former Mauthausen concentration camp after its liberation. Then it was given to a group of former concentration camp inmates of Czech nationality and they drove it to their liberated homeland. It still sported US MilGov temporary number plates and received very distinct marking describing the initial point and the destination of its passengers' journey from KL Mauthausen to liberated Czechoslovakia.

Scheme B. This Büssing was abandoned along with many other vehicles by retreating Wehrmacht troops on the territory of Czechoslovakia and then it was collected as a war booty by the newly formed Czechoslovak Armed Forces. Taken over by Armoured Troops HQ, the original German registration was painted over and the vehicle received an improvised registration ÚV-52 and was used by Czechoslovak troops in May, 1945

Scheme C: This Büssing belonged to the 1st Infantry Regiment of newly formed Czechoslovak Armed Forces in autumn of 1945. Its original Wehrmacht registration number was WH 84519, the vehicle received new coat of standard Czechoslovak Khaki paint and it was renumbered.

Our thanks to SKP Model for this update.

And now waiting for the same for Zvesda’s L4500 Mercedes! A good start to fill the lack of choice for all wheeled vehicles. Thanks for sharing.
