Opel Blitz ScratchBuild

Hello everybody !!!

this is my last work, and its big ahahaha
this are three Opel Blitz, two cargo and one ambulance, all scratchbuild, a most of the parts are functional, at least the details that I was capable of doing or where worth to make functional.

I've started this three trucks in November, and i had just finished them.
They are made, most of the parts, of PVC plastic, some metal and lots of body filler.

Despite the fact that the Opel Blitz are a very common German truck, it wasn't easy to find all the details that I wanted, I made a lot of research anyway was hard to find all that I needed.
But the final result was more than I expected, and I am really proud of them, especially because of the details and the total structure,
all the part where made by me, including the sewing, panting and the climatization
well, better stop talking and show the pictures.
I hope you like and enjoy
Im open to any question and I will answer all with much joy
sorry for my bad english
and the best regards from Brazil

WOW! that is some fine modeling and the paint work is really nice as well. You could open up a garage and start leasing out Blitz's. Very nice work on these.

Re: Opel Blitz ScratchBuild

Jubalula,

Outstanding work on your German truck fleet. I enjoyed the step by step pictures of your build. Would LOVE to know how you made the complex radiator screen?

May I shamelessly offer the list of German WW II license plates from FOA?

Re: Opel Blitz ScratchBuild

Very nice scratchbuilding. I'm surprised you got all that done just since November. Three at one time is impressive.

Re: Opel Blitz ScratchBuild

Now that is a lot of work! They look great you should be very proud! I'm getting ready to do some canvas work and hope I can do half as good as you did.

Re: Opel Blitz ScratchBuild

Thanks a lot everybody!!!
I´m much happy with all the comments !!!

Loic, the radiator I made with strips of cardboard glued side by side, so they could achieve this aspect, but I learned this technic here in the SAG, but I dont remember who showed this idea. and thank for offering the german plates list !!!

Ogre, when you say canvas working, if you mean sewing, well, bee patient and everything will be done nice, and there is nothing that youtube cant teach us hahah!!!

thank for all the comments
hopefully this weekend I will shoot some nice photos of the vehicles and some guys in a open dio

Well-done!

Love the regular truck version the most - but you should be most proud of all three!

Re: Opel Blitz ScratchBuild

Terrific job on the trucks and to finish three in the short time, did you forgo sleep? Like how you were able to bend the plastic for the curved surfaces and how the fenders were done with the relief cuts.

is the plastic styrene and what thickness did you use?

That is a stunning trio of builds, particularly given they are all scratch-builds...very well done indeed. Thanks for sharing, Steve
