#13020 Opel Blitz 1/35 (tamiya +voyager + eduard)

That was pretty hard to tie Tamiya kit and photo etched parts together, but i hope i've managed to..
So voyager provides the set with 1mm sheet of plastic so it is possible to substitute the tamiya's body with it. I just gave wooden texture to it. I also made myself hinges for the doors.

Man-o-man, that is one amazing build!!!!!
I just don't know how you guys can handle all that brass.
I can barely add engine screens to a model.

Great work.

Groet

Some people can make these sets look great and some people can't.
I think you are one of those that can.
I agree with Tony about struggling with engine screens .

There is a ton of brass in that Voyager set. I have it, and the kit, and hope to someday build it.

I was actually disappointed with the Voyager set. Normally their products are excellent, but here, instead of including something to represent wood, all they did was include a piece of styrene for the modeller to cut and add texture to, which I thought was a cop-out. Dimensional lumber cut from hardwood is available to model railroaders in several scales, and I know it can also be done for 1/35 scale because I have DONE that, had 1/35 scale lumber cut, and it would have been easier and much better than carving a styrene sheet to represent wood.

Normally I'd say: "Put some paint on it", but if you do that, people won't appreciate the fine work you have done on this model. Paint it if you want, or leave it "raw" as it is, so people can be amazed at the lengths we crazy modellers go.

Cheers
Scott Fraser
