JeroenS Posted August 30, 2022 Share Posted August 30, 2022 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! Thanks for watching! 15 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
