Nice. The swung out windows is a nice touch. :)

How did you create the nice weathering on the benches at the rear of the truck?
12. April, 08:37
Bogicevic Vladimir
Gerald, tank's. Treehugger, first paint the wood effects as you usually do. I have two ways of doing that, I will show them in my future builds (as soon as I am done with uploading my previously finished models and cleaning my bench of WIP-s.) Then, protect it with some gloss, then airbrush some hairspray and finally paint. After drying wash of the paint to make scratch effects. I will show how I do that in some of my future builds, too.

The frame is stretched, body painted and engine done.

Finally finished this kit. Cabin was challenging to say the least. Very little interior detail. Disappointed in the fact that the hood did not open to show detail on engine. Overall, reasonably happy with it

I thought depending on the box the Heller Blitz abd Pak 40 could be ex Airfix 1:76 (sold as 1:72 for years) or Esci 1:72. I have seen pictures proving this and always meant to buy the 2 types myself to check. Obviously the Esci is the better option if its cheap enough!

Wounder if you can just build the truck with out the 2cm Flak 38? The CyberHobby models look more detailed than Tamiya's Opel Blitz.
13. July 2015, 21:07
John Van Kooten
Hi Daniel,

Yes, you will be able to build the kit without the Flak as well because it is a two-in-one kit. The version without the Flak, which you can build from this box, is based on Dragon's #6670 kit (link below).

It is a very nice kit and will build into a good looking Opel Blitz. Definitely much better compared to the Tamiya and Italeri kits, I'd say :)

29. July 2015, 16:08
John Van Kooten
The price may seem a bit steep for such a relatively small kit but given the quality of the kit and the fact that there are basically no alternatives, I think it is worth it. I'd give it a thumbs up and once it is released into the wild I am probably going to pick up one or two for myself as well :D
29. July 2015, 18:04
Daniel Smith
Yeah I'll be picking one up to. :D
30. July 2015, 02:25
Daniel Smith
Looking at the part call out from Modelingmaddness, it looks like there are no unused parts. So might be looking at a part count of around 300 to 400. But I'll be picking this kit up some time in the future. :D
18. January 2016, 01:39
Daniel Smith
From time to time DragonUSA,com has it for around $40.00 USD.
7. May 2016, 22:15
Phenix Outis
I'm working on that kit atm, very nice, and IMHO, better than the Tamiya even if it's more complicated to build. But the great advantage of the Cyber Hobby is they offer the wheels to build a " late" version with the 8 holes wheels. Thing that Tamiya don't.

I received this kit in the mail. Decals look ok. Pretty nice detail on the kit too - I was expecting something a little chunkier actually! My only gripe is the bench seats which look simplistic but once they have gear and soldiers on I suppose it won't be much of a problem!
28. November 2015, 17:56
Pavel Pinzhin
Roden decals are infamous for being stiff, not elastic at all, and being prone to easily tear when positioning, especially the large ones. Yes, they do look fine, but they are challenging and require care and patience, more than other decals.
29. November 2015, 12:07
Rui S
You Lucky Mate.
You can always, incase the bench seats with tissue or candy wrapping plastic or other...
29. November 2015, 15:42
M.Julian Marles
Thanks guys, one of the few kits I wanted to get as soon as it came out... I can source other decals probably..or stencil them..@Rui..thanks mate! Yes, very happy as I have been waiting since the early 80s for a 1/35 offering of the BlitzBus! ;)

Hey Rui, I see you made your own canvas top for the Opel. How did you do it? What materials? It look pretty convincing!

Hi John,
This kit isn't finished yet as you can see in the truck bonnet and windscreen , but thx for a revival it.
I used MacDonald's table napkin soaked in water thinned down white glue. As usual in me, nothing fancy or too expensive.

29. March 2015, 13:04
Frank Krause
I'd love to do a diorama, Ingmar. But first I should be able to finish a kit first.

I'm also anxious to start this one, Rui. Let's see. It got its place near the workbench.

Nice kit so far, Joerg. A basic engine is provided. The frontwheels are steerable. However, the tie rod is missing, which means that one tire could turn right, whilst the other is turning left. The plastic seems to be a bit brittle. The frame of the windshield is broken in the box. No clear parts for the windows. Roden solved this with clear foil, where you cut out the windows (cutting lines are shown). I'm sure, this will become a nice replica of the Blitz Bus.
