Miniart 1/35 tow truck AA type

Now that the L1500S cargo truck is done, my attention now goes to getting this one finished; So far it has had a thinned black/brown mix sprayed onto the chassis, wheels and lower surfaces of the cab and crane followed by a light overspray of Tamiya XF-55 Deck Tan. At the moment I’m applying variousContinue reading “Miniart 1/35 tow truck AA type”

Miniart 1/35 German L1500S truck and trailer

Finally calling this one done after an intensive day of doing the finishing touches and making this build number seven for this year; This will appear on The Modelling News soon-ish in part two of the build review where I will describe the painting and finishing, in the meantime you can read how it allContinue reading “Miniart 1/35 German L1500S truck and trailer”

Miniart 1/35 German truck L1500S and trailer

I managed a couple of hours at the bench tonight so decided to stick the various components such as the cab, cabin glazing, cargo bed and mudguards to the chassis. Along with the trailer the model is ready for the final weathering stages and I can call it done. In hindsight the blue (Tamiya XF-5)Continue reading “Miniart 1/35 German truck L1500S and trailer”

Miniart 1/35 German truck L1500s and trailer

Yeah this one is dragging on somewhat, mainly due to the different colours used but also the barrels took ages to paint as well. Anyway the barrels have been finished; They were primed with black from a rattle can first then some were sprayed with Tamiya XF-59 Desert Yellow while a couple of others gotContinue reading “Miniart 1/35 German truck L1500s and trailer”

Miniart 1/35 German truck L1500S w/ trailer

That’s another built and awaiting paint; This will be featured as a full build review on The Modelling News as soon as I get around to writing it up; https://www.themodellingnews.com/?m=1 I normally have a model put together temporarily for photography purposes, unfortunately this particular kit doesn’t lend itself to that as the wheels have smallContinue reading “Miniart 1/35 German truck L1500S w/ trailer”

Miniart 1/35 German L1500S truck and trailer

Just a teaser for now as the chassis is built and I can move onto the cab, cargo bed and trailer; Not as tricky as the Miniart 1/35 tow truck AA type I built a month or so ago but it still took a couple of days to assemble it. The worst part was fittingContinue reading “Miniart 1/35 German L1500S truck and trailer”

Next project, Miniart 1/35 German truck L1500S w/cargo trailer

The Airfix 1/72 Hawk was painted today so I’ve set it aside for a bit to let the paint cure prior to applying the decals. Meanwhile I’ve made a start on the Miniart 1/35 German truck L1500S and trailer that was sent from the factory in Ukraine to do as a build review for TheContinue reading “Next project, Miniart 1/35 German truck L1500S w/cargo trailer”

Miniart 1/35 tow truck AA type

The build is now finished so the model will be sprayed with a black basecoat before the top colour goes on; Not the easiest of builds I must say and if you are looking for a quick model to build then choose something else. That is not to say it’s an awful kit, far fromContinue reading “Miniart 1/35 tow truck AA type”

Miniart 1/35 tow truck AA type

This is the first of the two Miniart kits that I got for The Modelling News, the AA type tow truck; That was quite intense and very fiddly due to the amount of parts that just make up the chassis alone and you are looking at the best part of a week to get thisContinue reading “Miniart 1/35 tow truck AA type”

Miniart 1/35 Mercedes Typ170 V Lieferwagen

I finished the Lieferwagen today without screwing it up! YAY! A very enjoyable build and my first civilian vehicle rather that military. The kit goes together very well, the only thing I altered was the door hinges as the kit ones are too small and you won’t be able to depict the front doors fullyContinue reading “Miniart 1/35 Mercedes Typ170 V Lieferwagen”
