Opel Blitz, Tamiya 1/48
Being a recent re-starter in the hobby my main focus at the moment is Bf109’s, but to add some interest to the planes I have started adding 1/48 vehicles to my stash.
I do have some aftermarket items to make more detailed versions at a later date – Perhaps in due course some dioramas may follow, but that is still further down the road.
I just had to build a Opel Blitz to gain some experience in building vehicles, and this one is OOB with the only modification being a drilled hole in the exhaust to get a more real look to that one. Colours are Tamiya German Grey, Xtracolour Tyre Black, Humbrol 22 Matt White and Testors Fire red. The last two are from when I built models last some 30 years ago, and they are still useable.
I have only just started airbrushing, and has a lot to learn, but it seems like it just takes a lot of trial and error, and not least some rather useful comments on iModeler!
As an aviation freak, I wonder why the scales are not the same throughout the kit-world, when it comes to 1/48, 1/50 1/32 and 1/35… – I find that the nice little Tamiya kits of Vehicles in 1/48 are getting rather hard to find, and not many manufacturers make a lot in that scale. anyway, that just makes it so munch more fun to search for items I guess 🙂
