1938 Opel Blitz
It's not just another car. It's a truck. Actually a 1938 2ndWW German Opel Blitz… the civilian version. I thought I'd do a truck no one thought of doing in this scale because, well this one is one of the best looking classic trucks in my opinion. Anyways I've been building it for a while. I could have ended it sooner but I was busy building another 2 models at the same time. This one was a treat to build. I found some old blueprints of it and it was fun all along. The detail that pretty much decided on wether I'd continue building it or not was in fact the front hood. It had to look and act like on the real truck. In other words it had to open. Right after I dealt with that little problem everything else was a piece of cake. As for the presentation. I thought it would be funny to make it look like an old school LEGO model so there it is.

About this creation

Like many of my models this one also has a double steering. You can steer from the wheel in the cockpit and you can also do it on the back on the truck. There is an axle under the towing hook on which you can attach a steering wheel and play.




A view from the top shows the exact shape as the original truck has and the view from below shows some details the real truck also has - like exhaust pipe, fuel tank etc.










When it was time to do the engine I wanted to make it like the one in the real truck and then I came to understand that I can't actually do that so I kind of improvised. I think it turned out alright.






On the right side of the truck there is something the real truck has. It's a fuel tank pipe right under the seat. The 1x1 rounded plate is actually a cork

Quoting William Henderson Not too familiar with old European trucks, but this is a great looking rig with great details. It looks a bit like my Power Wagon that I am finishing. The presentation as a LEGO Set in booklet form is unique way to show off your work!
Thanx for the comment. As for the truck itself it was one of the most important army trucks in German army and the irony is that it was designed in Germany but built by GM in USA. Of course before the war.

Quoting Udo Scharmach I love it. Is there a chance for a military version?
Oh yes there is. Care to sponsor all the gray parts? Seriously. I tell you what I need, you get me those parts and the model is yours when it's done.

Quoting Henrik Hoexbroe In this case Ill risk saying that the presentation is more impressive than the MOC! Funny detail with the old red gears in the wheels. I think the project would have been better staying strictly with old-school colours (i.e. no light blue)
Thanx for the the comment. As for the color blue. It is the regular color. It's just that I messed up a bit with color corrections. :))

In this case Ill risk saying that the presentation is more impressive than the MOC, although I in no way want to say that the MOC is bad, its just that professional graphics skill is obvious... The truck is also very good, and certainly unexpected. -A nice surprise! Funny detail with the old red gears in the wheels. I think the project would have been better staying strictly with old-school colours (i.e. no light blue)
