Here is my quick builds of a couple of 1/48 scale Opel Blitz trucks...both of them are what-if but the fuel truck is more what-if than the ragtop is.













These models will be seen from time to time in the background in some of my pics of other newly finished models. ;)

My next model will be started in the morning after I clean the work table off...the next model is HUGE.

Thanks Pablo1965!

Right after I took these pics of the fuel truck I dropped it (again!) and broke it. :angry: Twice during assembly I dropped this model and had to repair it....thats my cue to start working on wing things again, at least I can hang on to them better.

Thank you Cobra, Bernie, NARSES 2, and Alex!

Cobra,
No I don't have any plans for building a Crash Tender but if Tamiya made one in 1/48 scale I would no doubt get one and build it.

BTW, these models were built from the Italeri/Tamiya kits. The Tamiya kit is just a reboxing of the Italeri kit and is crude compared to what Tamiya usually does with these 1/48 scale ground vehicle kits.
Also the tires included with these kits are those stupid fake rubber tires and not plastic. :angry:
The paints used were Model Master enamels and the colors were hand mixed...I don't build many armor vehicles and don't have any of the RAL paints so I have to wing it whenever I do build some ground targets.
I chose the Ambush scheme for the fuel truck since that type of vehicle is important to a Luftwaffe unit and would have recieved a good camouflage scheme to prevent losing it to Allied fighter-bombers, the Ambush scheme was very effective at hiding vehicles under trees or camouflage netting.
