1/72 Profiline Steyr 1500 Truck

Recommended Posts

Ok, this isn't "Armour" but since I've seen a Kübelwagen here, I suppose this is the right section to present my 1/72 Profiline Steyr 1500 Truck.

I have a special interest in this vehicle as it was built in my country - in the town of Steyr in Upper Austria, to be exact (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Steyr).

Profiline seems to be a subsidiary of Special Hobby, and the same kit is also marketed under their 'Special Armour' range.

It comes in various set-ups, as a cargo truck or ambulance vehicle.

When CMK/Special Hobby attended IMPS Austria's Go Modelling in March 2016 they had some version of this kit reduced -50%.

I got myself three.

Here's the first one finished.

As it is of short-run nature, some fiddling and fettling is neccessary to get everything lined-up.

Cargo are resin items from CMK, my spares box and scratch built tarpaulin (from rubber gloves).

Painted with Gunze/Mr.Hobby acrylics, weathering with artist's oils and pastel chalks.

Windshield wipers and rear view mirror are scratch built from photo etch scraps.

Hope you like this tiny truck!

Lovely looking build of a lovely looking truck.

I did a conversion of the Tamiya staff car to the truck version many years ago and it still has pride of place In the display cupboard.
