Revell 1/24 Hanomag trailer


Recommended Posts

Hi all, I built this trailer for last weekend's Blitz Build which was a fun event as usual. A kit such as this is actually ideal for Blitzing because the parts count is relatively low and also, some of the parts are quite large 🙂 

 

The Hanomag trailer comes from a series of truck kits which Revell started in the late '90's and yielded a Büssing 8000 and a Krupp Titan before the idea was abandoned. I would have liked to see more of these kits! Anway, the trailer matches both of the trucks but can also be built separately of course. Which is what I did, and maybe it will help getting one of the truck kits out for building. Some day!

 

This is the kit, I bought this used but unopened.

I chose not to build the cover. The trailer is already quite large and I felt that painting the cover convincingly would not work within the 24 hour Blitz Build timeframe. As it was, I used up about 15 hours to complete it, with a couple of hours left before the deadline. 

 

The kit goes together really well, Revell clearly made the effort for these kits. I'm hoping the trucks will build just as nicely. The tyres on this thing are huge, they're at least 5mm higher than the standard Italeri tyres. Also, they're solid items, and there are nine of them on the trailer so the model has some real weight to it! I took some pics outside this morning while the light was still nice and soft. Here goes!

An  excellent build. I have two of these in my stash, I hope to find the time one day to build them together with the Büssing and Krupp lorries. It’s indeed such a shame that Revell abandoned this line of veteran lorries – there are so many beautiful German, British or French ones that could be turned into attractive model kits.

Thanks John. I completely agree! Shame that we have to rely on the occasional reboxing or second hand sites for trucks like this. Luckily I was able to get the Büssing and the Krupp (twice, why not 🙂) at a reasonable price. I think these classic trucks are way more interesting than the modern ones Italeri is currently punching out.

Excellent as always Jeroen 👍

 

And now for the Truck builds …….. 😆 

Thanks! Well, I have 2 of the Krupp Titans so you'd think I should be able to get at least one of them built at some point, especially if I make it an OOB build.
