Being a modeller for quite a few years now, I decided to explore the endless possibilities that the world (through internet) offers, and come up with a series of ways of building, modelling and painting fast (but not hastily), to create the worlds I was seeing in history books since I was little. . .If you care to join me. . . This is the place to be! And, I promise you to find the way (or ways)!!

Fortress Models - Opel Blitz - Finished

Good afternoon ladies & gentlemen.

Have a good month and may I welcome you to my new post, which is called ''Fortress Models - Opel Blitz - Finished''. In one of my previous posts, I showed you some new models I purchased from Fortress Models and Rapid Fire (RTR). These past few days, I've been painting like a mad man models and figures - life didn't come in the way - yippe!

Below you will see the photos of the finished Opel Blitz's (Fortress Models) alongside two Pegasus German Trucks that I had bought and painted in the past - they needed a bit of refurbishment to blend together with the other trucks. Thanks to you Paul, I now have this idea (refurbishment) whizzling in my mind! :-)

I still owe you the photos of the Crusader Gun Tractors that I got, and the photos of the 17 pdr guns, and the photos of their crews, and the photos of the.....well you get the idea of how many things I am about to upload in this blog, so you have to see what's coming, soon. :-)

The models were painted very easily, since the level of detail and sculpting is crisp and clear. Good robust models, ideal for us who don't want to spend their youth while building kits from scratch. I am a lazy sod, I know... 

Off we go guys! 



And my old Pegasus German Trucks. I think they look better now. 



Well, that was it!
Until next time, hope you all have a good Thursday night! :-)

    1. Shame? What for mate? It's only a means of keeping our heads together mate, never forget that. As long as you sacrifice your hours for sth like that, you are some steps higher than a lot of people, who watch the telly while drinking beer! :)

  5. The weathering really makes these special Thanos. And the detail of darkened exhaust and oil on that front grill is superb. I'm glad you found time to paint my friend!

    1. These fortress models have the windscreens on them Rich, I didnt add them. You can see how lazy sod I am by looking the pegasus trucks, that come without any windscreens. Thank you for your kind words. :)
