Fine tooling, fine tuning

November 30, 2007

As well as getting the rest of the Company A ready, I’ve been gluing up the first kit of a Marder IIIH and an Opel Blitz truck. The Marder has proven straightforward and quick to assemble so far, a joy to work with.

The Opel Blitz? Well, I have to even assemble the engine block, that’s how much detail there is – and in 1/72 scale, at that! For wargaming, it’s too much! The kit itself looks fine, comes off its sprues well, but gluing the radiator to the glued engine block, then gluing on the individual hoses…enough already! I’ll persevere, just to find out if I can delete this step when I assemble all the others.
