The English manufacturer Aviattic offers a wonderful small kit of the Daimler "Marienfelde" - a typical German lorry from the 1st world war.

The kit consists of 50 resin parts, 27 photo etched parts, clear foil for the windows, decals, wire, chain, and aluminium pipe for the exhaust. The quality of the parts is highest class. The resinparts are fantastic, the building is not different from a standart plastic kit.

Orderable from the website of Aviattic, with a delivery time of approx. 7-8 weeks after placing an order!


Here are some pictures of the mostly glued together sections... and some singple parts which will be glued later...























All parts black primered:












And painted with a mixture of three Lifecolor colors ...


















And some first bit of oil colors added ....





Cheers

Hello,

the included driver figure is painted, mostly with oil colors and glued on the driver's seat, then the front wall was added.

The front grill was painted with AK Interactive's metal colors.

The rubber tires were painted in light grey, then the frame and wheels received a brown and black washing.




















Next is the painting of the driver's cab ... window frames, installing the windows... painting details, weathering

Cheers
Micha

Hello.

I want to show you the finished Daimler "Marienfelde". A wonderful multimedia kit from Britsh manufacturer Aviattic, consisting of fantastic made rein-parts, some photo etched parts, wire, clear foil, decals and a mounting instruction looking as the ones from Wingnut Wings. A great kit. Not cheap, but great




































I hope you like it!

Cheers

Micha

Micha, when something looks that good... as far as I'm concerned it can be anywhere it wants to be.
