Peacefull morning modelling(while "pets" still sleep):

I needed approx. 4,5 hours to finish my first wheel-62 pieces in total(30 rods,22 resin parts and 10 PE).
A kit of it's own.
Test fit on the front cart:

Yeah,having built in already 248 parts(PE included) I can only say this kit is worth every penny.

Lost some tiny bits,but managed to build them from styrene:

Next I'll start the construction of the wheels-another 220 parts(PE included) fun!
I now like resin so much, that I have 2 more kits from PlusModel on my wish(Santa Claus)list-Steyr 640 and Tempo G1200.
So thanks for setting up this Campaign and for all the support!

The trailer is very Ben Hur-ish chariot shaped. With the light behind it, you can see how thin the resin is. Very impressive kit. Thanks Angel

Quite a bit done for one day. Usually it takes that long just to clean up parts.

Very impressive etch work there as well Angel.

Thanks Peter,
Saturday's progress:




Had some minor difficulties joining the body to the frame-not kit's fault but mine.CA accelerator solved the issue.

First steps with resin:



Surprisingly smooth cleaning and construction,except for the hassle with CA.
Did one mistake though, but fortunately not crucial.


12 parts down, 209 to go

Can't say I don't see your point,Peter
Been saving from some planned or underway projects for the last 2 months to get this kit...
But-you're lucky,mate!
You have your mother-in-law on your side!

Ouch Angel. The price tag on it is a little steep, even for an all Resin kit. That equates to a Thunder Model Scammel Tank Transporter, Takom Luchs and Tamiya Russian Matilda and change after delivery costs - which I just ordered online. The Scammel is my Christmas present from my Mother-in- law. How many other guys are that lucky?

My Resin stash is mainly acquired from swap meets.

I will really enjoy seeing it built though. It looks fascinating.

Peter,
The kit comes from the Czech producer PlusModel(#449).
Down under you can have it from BNA Model World

Looks like an interesting vehicle to build Angel. Who makes the base kit, is it a local (to you) manufacturer?

I've changed my mind- instead of Opel Blitz Typ A Conversion, I'll go for the Pavesi P.4-100 artillery tractor by PlusModel.

It will one day tow a Flak 88/18 of Royal Bulgarian Air Defence like in this picture:

Little progress

Add a tray between two front seats instead of the antislip plate and add antislip carpet on floor.

Before to glue rear seats you have to make several tests fit with the cab part in place, as there aren't any measures in instructions.

Thanks for the comments, guys. Indeed a Strange vehicle. The base color is more suited for the red surface of Mars being a Sci-Fi vehicle.
If you think the color is unusual wait til you see the decals

More to follow



At least it's eye-catching
The build is clean. All theses recesses ask for a lot of washes and heavy weathering.
