Opel Blitz kit commentary over at “Plastic Warriors 1/76 & 1/72 Plastic Soldiers and Armour”

January 9, 2010

My online colleague Paul over at his blog Plastic Warriors: 1/76 & 1/72 Plastic Soldiers and Armour has really been working hard to let us know about 1/72 scale and 1/76 scale Opel Blitz kits for modelling and wargaming. Hats off and glasses raised to Paul for this!

His post today, Airfix vs Pegasus Truck Comparison, is a thorough examination of the Opel Blitz kits made by those two well-known manufacturers.

Pegasus German Trucks Attachments features a period photo of an Opel Blitz with most of its rear tarpaulin rolled up, soldiers on the back  and driving somewhere with a warm climate…may be a good reference tool or piece of inspiration for your serious modellers to make a neat little diorama.

Pegasus German Army Trucks Construction is exactly that, with photos and commentary.

There are some more posts prior to and in between these, but I’m really interested in what he’s writing. Maybe I’ll send him a Roden Opel Blitz (since I’ve got a few yet unassembled) to see what his opinions of it are?

    Such kind comments, cheers. The Roden Opel Blitz in NZ is about $30 NZD…so way too expensive for my modest self imposed budget.

    Academy also have a Blitz of sorts as well in the same price range.

      Yours is a very interesting blog and you deserve a good pat on the back.
      I agree that the Roden kit isn’t cheap – the one I have assembled was very detailed but worth the work.
