Tamiya (Italeri) 1/48 Opel Blitz with ACE 1/48 Flak 38 Afrikakorps

Here´s another little armour project my dad did for diversion back in 2015.

Used the Tamiya Opel Blitz boxing of the Italeri kit together with the Flak 38 from ACE. The flak base/mount came from gaso.line, the truck bed enclosure was done with matchsticks which made a real wooden look. Afrikakorps decal from the sparesbox, painted with Gunze and Tamiya acrylics.

14 additional images. Click to enlarge.

  1. Now that little truck has character. Weathering is spot on. And no wings for a change. And for those of us who mostly dabble with aircraft, an armor project always is a nice change. Thanks for sharing.

  2. That is beautifully done. I’m really impressed with how real it looks!

  3. Put that against a “realistic” background and you could convince me it’s a 1:1. That’s some very good work there.

  4. Such a fine eye for detail-in-scale! That’s a little beauty.
