Hello,

I thought I would toss this build up to share. I just finished a review on this little guy and decided I would keep going on the build!

Here is a link to the Review here on Armorama : Zugkraftwagen 1t (Sd.Kfz. 10) Demag Typ D7 Please stop by and check it out!!

For starters here is the kit:

MPK-Modellbau's Zugkraftwagen 1t (Sd.Kfz. 10) Demag Typ D7 in 1:72



This is a very nice kit, even better if you consider the scale. As I mention in the review (and with pictures) the kit is complete on on tree of sprue. So after reading through the instructions I decided to have at it....



The body/chassis cleaned up well. The fact that the transmission was molded to the one piece tub these to parts just fell together.



Next came the nose of the vehicle. Please note, this is where I messed up a bit. Like in normal building I tend to jump to other section of the build and back...this time this one got me a little. The windscreen/dshboard/firewall section was not put in when it was suppose to...per the instructions. LOL...that will teach me not to follow them!! I had glued the two step sides that are located just behind each front fender first, before placing the dashboard section. This obviously did not want to fit...luckily the two pieces I glued were still soft enough to pull back and install the Dsh section...





With that out of the way, literally the bedsides, canopy, tools and interior parts just fell together!! This is one reason why I am really liking 1/72 scale more and more. There is not 800 tiny parts with complicated directions to slow up a build. I can then get to the fun part faster...painting!!

Here is how she stood by the time to review was ready....









OK, now that I am caught up on this I am progressing on the painting end of this project. I laid down some primer on this last night and will be moving forward on the painting off and on today!!




I plan on getting downstairs to shoot some paint today...in between normal chores!!

As always thanks for having a peek!!

Nice job. It looks like a great little kit, and has great detail. I really like that it includes the folded down cover, something entirely missing on the larger scale offerings.

Even some of the details look sharper as well.

Thank you Russ and Frank!

This kit does have some great detail for its size!! And the canopy is a nice touch too. This was 3 pieces; two side and the center section. If you looks closely though, the whitish texture on this part was my doing. Some Tamiya white and Extra Thin Cement and then I stippled the mixture with a brush to give some extra texture.

Time for a quick one....as I stated I plan on moving on this one. I laid down a base coat using AK's Dunkelgrau Base.



Next came a dusting coat of Dunkelgrau Light over some of the panels.





I need to glue the wheels on this tiny guy and give the entire piece a nice wash using AK Blue Brown Wash...coming up soon.

Thanks again for checking up on me!!

Oh man...get out of here I can't believe how miniscule that thing is. And no...I'm not paying for your optometrist bills.

Great job on both the review and build so far T, looking forward to seeing this one progress.

OK....time for another update!!!

Utilizing my time well I guess I was able to get down stairs and some thing together and get a AK Brown Blue Wash down Along with some color on the seats, canopy and tools for starters...





I plan on finishing up the tools tonight and laying some dusting down as well! Not going crazy, just enough to let it look used a bit.

Thanks for stopping by and having a look see!!

Gary, their 1/48 kit is the same detail. Meaning not good for 1/48 at all, everything oversized, especially after Bronco's enter into quarterscale.


Nice jobb, Todd, as always!

Todd, great work so far. I've seen MK72's kits first hand and they are first class.

Roman, please note that MK72 and Blue Cat Models are not the same company, even though they are both from Switzerland. MK72 makes exclusively 1/72 scale and Blue Cat 1/48 scale kits. Though the owners are friends and MK72 helped Blue Cat with the release of its first model, they are completely separate companies.

Cheers!
Stefan

PS: I have no affiliation with either of them. I know the owners personally from an occasional modelers' get together and encouraged them to submit their kits for review on Armorama.
