Hi ! I like to build all Germans constructions from WW II. My personal favourite is Opel Blitz truck - all versions. All my works, I dedicate my daughter (birth date 23.09.08) She's my little love !

A stunning work indeed Przemo. I've noticed and I like a lot your German truck series I'd like to know more about the paint job What color did you use as base? Did you do some filter? What about the washes? Congrats again and thanks in advance

Excellent looking build-up - I really like your weathering work!

Looking good Przemyslaw - but you should have asked one of the German members to help you with the signs... It should be 'Rauchen verboten!' And I'm not sure if 'Tankstelle' is the right choice of word as that means 'petrol station' Maybe 'Tankwagen'? And the rest of that sign should probably read 'Feuergefahr (or, more likely 'Brandgefahr') Rauchen und offenes Licht im Umkreis von 10m verboten!' And, although I'm a great fan of rust effects for weathering myself, you may want to tone it down a bit. Years ago I heard from German WWII veterans that their commanders did not tolerate rust on vehicles (the very least they expected was that the rust be rubbed with an oily rag) and I stumbled across a bit of (so far) unconfirmed info recently: apparently before 1945 steel was much less likely to rust as badly as it does now - the reason given was that since then nuclear devices have been exploded in the atmosphere, which appears to have caused steel to be more prone to start rusting. Can anybody confirm or disprove this? I'd hate this to be true, as I love rust-effects and I don't want to have to start building modern amour, just so I can indulge my rusty habit.

Great work! I think your trucks look awesome. One of the good things about this hobby is every modeler gets to build "it" the way he/she wants to.
