Fruit Delivery Van Typ 170V Lieferwagen

1:35 MiniArt

Oops, I finished this before Christmas last year and only just realised that I hadn't posted it here. I could have sworn I had, but memory and age must be catching up with me!

Anyhow, I like doing the occasional vehicle model, and this one really caught my eye. Mike reviewed it here.

 

It is typical MiniArt, being very well detailed with a lot of fine mouldings, and superb fit of parts. It was real pleasure to build, but was so fine that it needed a lot of care to to break things as construction went on!  

 

The only thing I would have liked would have been some decals for the red circles on the wheel hubs. The wheel painting sequence was: Dark grey tyres, then whitewalls, then green for the hubs, then silver, then red, and finally silver again.  A sequence of six colours with a lot of freehand & masking to paint on each one. Decals for those red bits would have really helped!  (I've just noticed on the photos I should have pressed the bonnet/hood down a touch, it does fit nice and snugly. Oh well!)

 

A fun build, but I'm a bit done with painting all that fruit!

During contrsuction, the engine & chassis are quite detailed.F6.JPG

 

Its quite small, for comparison with my Airfix Katy ambulance:F10.JPG

 

Thanks for looking,

That's different - and really very nicely done! Lovely finish on the van, looks spot on for the era, and the fruit is brilliant!

 

Cracking build John!

Lovely job John.  I've added a link to the review now, so people can see how well it builds :yes:

Just imagine you had to eat it all! What a sweet model!

Nice work! Man, you've done a great job on painting the fruit there as well!

You should be very proud of the fruits of your labour :D That's a lovely little model, excellent finish. It also reminds me that I need to revisit my stalled build of the MiniArt beer van.

 

When it comes to spraying wheels and hubs different colours, I find one of these comes in handy:

I think based on this one you need to build more civilian vehicles :) Great work throughout, both on the van and on the fruit.

 

Not sure I could have stood driving that though, all that fruit, including cut fruit, sitting on the roof makes me think there must have been a cloud of wasps following very close behind!

What a lovely result John.  Can't beat a nice Merc.

I have a question however.  Are those Großmutter Schmidt apples by any chance?  🍏

 

Chris.

PS.  I'd nip and see the doctor if I were you.  Your plumbs are a funny colour. :rofl:
