Kfz. 305 Opel Blitz

Finished this one. Finally. Here's the 1/35 Italeri Opel Blitz, with some alterations. the standard cargo bed was swapped with one from the Italeri Maultier kit because i wanted the stake sides on this one. All the tarp tie down loops were shaved off and replaced with fine wire. The tarp bow mounts were replaced, as were all the latches on the bed. Scratch built the large cargo box on the drivers side. Cut the doors away from the kit, which takes a lot of work to get back into the proper position!! (so not advised) Just numerous mods done to bring a different aspect to the kit. Hopefully the pics say it all.
