Burned Blitz

It was on my list for a long time. After the burned Kubel it was the natural thing to do. Let's see how fast this can be done.

And it's got exit rip holes, and a lot of small stuf added tot the cab. The holes in the bridge holding the bonnet sides has small holes that are to be hollowed out from within and the doors and bench remains are next.

The solution is a top part made of aluminum sheet and a aluminum foil prest over another spare cab's side grid's.

The delicate broken down cab parts are together again, with some reinforsments and some putty. On the rest of the truck it begins to show where I'm heading. Devatation. I always become quiet and impressed with remains of vehicles like this.

A quick grap in the spare box with all parts roughly cleaned and separated. The all time fixes, the radiator frame and the headlights are adressed. The pictures of a couple of AHS trucks on the bridge show lots of small caliber impacts, that make a dent to the inside, and rip holes to the outside, so an explosion inside is called for. That means that the engine covers must have been bulged out. First test: the original covers are punctured wit a small dril and aluminum foil glued on with superglue. pushing the foil out through the drilled holes is not what I want for these ripps.

The chassis is a reworked wreck from the spare box. the frontwheels have brake drums, the rear wheels have non terrain tyres. The exhaust has a hole drilled to mimmic an open pipe. The box on the chassis is hanging open, as is one on the cargo bay. Some of the cargo supports are not fixed. When the 3 main build parts come together, we'll see about that.

All burned wood parts are chewed away with a small milling cutter. The metal strips protruding. Empty trucks are rare, so just to create interresting bits to view, this truck brings spare parts for an armour workshop. The crates are spare seating benches and the strips that are left over from the milling. When the rest of the Blitz has been build, I can go on with that.

The plan is to spare the rear part of the cargo bay, and as the cab wil be completly burned the front of the cargo must be burned extensively. With a dremel all not metal parts are taken out. All imperfections of the kit are filled and sanded.
