Another Opel Truck

Another Opel Truck, which is a work in progress.

Cargo bed is made of plastic.

Wooden braces for the bed. Plastic used for the Jerry can racks.


Battle Hobbies head lights, notlicht from Panzerwerks. Still need to mount the license plate.

Mirrors made from railroad markers and brass tube. With markers made with brass tube and large pin heads.



Strap holders from Armor Tec. Bolt detal from Dragon shoulder board bolts.


Still needs a lot of work in the drivers compartment and doors. Need to make some windows. Cargo bed is not secured to the medal frame yet.
And a lot more to do.

Thanks for looking.

Hammer,

If you don't mind me asking, where did you get the Open cab shell? Looking good on your new vehicle.

Re: Another Opel Truck

Hammer, your Opel is off to a great start. The detail on the bed is fantastic. Another great looking build with a rotomold vehicle!

I got my Opel trucks from Plasticpanzers, bought two from him and another from a board member a long time back Just getting around to working on them this year and last. I just ask for the cab and bed, no cargo top, cuts done on the price and postage. Never have tried any of Plasticpanzers tires I have been using Steve's from Panzerwerk's tires on all my trucks.

I guess I should post how I make the rear duel tires.

Here's a link to Plasticpanzers
