Over the Christmas period (I forget exactly the date). Pete at the club gave me a HEAVILY undercoated Opel Blitz radio truck that he got as part of a job lot. So he passed it on to me. And this is how it turned out.
I must say I was pleased with the result. Yes parts could have been done a little better and if I was a modelmaker I probably would have. Taken more care. None the less it has come out OK.
Here is a link (Link) to where one can be bought.
I think Peter will be both pleased and surprised with how it has come out. While I have no current use for it. I do have plans! Ssssh say no more in case they don't come to fruition. Several previous plans have failed to materialise. Still enough of that.
All equipment in the desert in WW2 was used by all sides so it is possible this may be used as British as I have deliberately left all insignia off.
I am in 2 minds whether to put it on a base. for now I will not but do not be at all surprised if in later posts I do! I will see if I can find any suitable MDF 2mm bases at the show on Sunday.
So time will tell if this gets a base or not.
One thing I do know is that there are very few 20mm manufacturers/sellers at the show (I think just 2, but I am willing to be surprised and wrong!)
I have included 4 pics so an all round view might be achieved. It just gives it a better three dimensional look.
Looks wise I wanted it to look used and abused. So I have weathered it appropriately, after all not so many car washes in the Desert! (At least not in war time).
Thanks for looking.
For those going to Broeadside I will be taking some fudge (Made it yesterday) BUT supplies are not inexhaustible so maybe only a taster!
With luck see you there.
And if not take care and enjoy the weather/election/whatever.
All the best Clint
