Hello, everybody With the end of building in sight i finally decided to show a model, that took away year and a half of my life. It's Opel Blitz from GPM, fourth reincarnation, if i'm not mistaken. Here is the cover: When i say it took year and a half to build, i don't mean i have been actually building it all this time. I just got frustrated so many times, that i even stopped any modelling for months. By far i'm not the best modeller around, but there are so many many innacuracies in this kit, that simply cannot be made by modeller. For instance - the roof of drivers cabin was too small to cover the cabin even flat: Imagine this part bent to shape... Most puzzling is the fact that somebody from polish Konradus forum actually built this thing and it looks very nice and clean as if he didn't paint or even PhotoShop it. Anyway, back to my cardboard Frankenstein. It is almost completed, waiting for last few coats of paint on the front part to blend everything in. Then it's just licence plate, windshield wipers and "Opel blitz" logo on the front grill left to finish. First, the general views. Riveting was one of those self imposed horrors, that modellers seem to like very much. Here's closeup of the the front. The grille is far from perfect, thouh... Finally, the underside. This is where the most of scratchbuilding work is done. The engine, clutch and gearbox, for example, were represented by square bathtub. Jerrycan holder was made according to pictures from a different model of Blitz, but i decided it looks right enough. I also made break and fuel lines, exaust and some other small thingies. Now the underside certainly looks bether than the top. Maybe i should display it upside down? I hope to finish it in a week or so.
