*Finished* Loading Scene with S.M. 82 Crete 1942

This project should show a typical Loading scene of a SM.82 Canguro, the Transportversion of the Marsupiale Bomber, which was widely used by the Luftwaffe in the Mediteranean and North African Theatre.
It is situated around May 1942 at Heraklion (Crete)

The kit is the Italeri one, which is not a simple Build (fit and some material issues). The figures are a mix up from Zvezda, Preiser and Revell.
The Opel Blitz is from Roden.

Great looking little dio, Daniel! The cockpit of the SM.82 looks great, and so does the Blitz!

Thank you Guys for your kid words. I hope to finish the projekt within the next 4 weeks.
Ther are only a few things left to do but these little things left to do- often costs most of the total time 🙂
@Greg Baker.. The Bus is this kit: scalemates.com/kits/121150-roden-720-opel-3-6-47-omnibus

Thank you all very much Gentlemen... Much appreciated... still some way to go but it will be finished with a new Base and some additions soon...
Added some Pics of the progress.. My Gosh 2 Years nearly ...Time is a bitch

The fourth photo looks stunning imo. There is all this detail in the canopy glass, and then the depth, and then the different scales to things with the large airplane and the smaller things around it. 🙂 And the dark shadow under the plane and the bus is a very nice touch.
21. September 2018, 17:48
great to have the extra pics

Why the new base Daniel? It already looks fantastic.
4. October 2018, 22:59
Daniel Klink
Thank you for your motivating and kind words chaps 👍
@Greg new is the wrong word . It gets an nearly complete refurbishment becaus ut is 2 years old by now and i used it for transportation. To fix the plane and things on it i used toothpicks. Too many holes showed off 🙂 And it will become a wooden Frame and a bit more vegetation and some colour treatment.

@Lukasz black and white gives it a special touch thank you mate.
But the exhausts are missing 🙂

The Black Boys in summer outfit! The figures of Zvezda are not that bad.
But one of them took a shower in old oil as it looks. Macro is incorruptible 🙁
21. December 2018, 17:53
It looks simply fantastic

Alex-Ovidiu Mihailescu
Top notch ! Love the scene ! What do you think about the Roden Blitz? Although I've seen a lot of positive reviews , some people who have actually built it are not so pleased. Thanks! Frohe Weihnachten!
25. December 2018, 05:51
Daniel Klink
Thank you mates! Much appreciated

@Alex Many thanks for your kind words. The Roden Blitz is very good in Detail and overall fit.
But especially the Bus versions goot some really evident fit issues between Cabin and Roof.
With mine there were also big differents in Materialthickness in this area.
You have to do a lot of dryfit and sanding there, which i did not enough.
So i decided to cover the worst part with the tarpaulin from the Black Box set.
It is a fine kit after all. I have 2 additional of them in my stash and next time i know the issues😉
