Greetings! I am a lucky man. Now I have one copy of Leadwarrior's limited edition of full resin kit. This is Mannschaftstransportwagen Magirus ARW . Very rare and beautiful armored car. I will try to make some corrections with welds and extra details on a hull. I hope it will be interesting.

Hello,Tim! It is ok. I have lack of time for taking photos and no time for painting at all. Now it's waiting for final pre-paint photoset.

I know that German AFV in 20-30 years of XX century were painted in RAL 6006 Feldgrau.

I see welds on this photos. So I have decided to make them. It was a difficult decision because it is quite hard to do welds in a such places. On a hull I make some grooves for putty.





I've decided to glue some plastic below and cut off a little stripes of plastic which would be filled by putty later.

Hello, Artyom!

THIS is an EXCELLENT CHOICE of a not very well-known Armored Vehicle! It DOES look like a Military Version of a Sports Car!!! I will be following this build with great interest, as I did your last one not so long ago!

Artyom, I see two different types of Wheels in your photos- Which style are you going to use?

This is interesting, INTERESTING!!! Thank You for not building "another" Panther or Tiger like too many other modelers do!!!

Hi,Dennis! I usually build unusual vehicles. That's true. I like to know something new. There are many unique models on the market but people still building Tigers and T-34s. That's amazing.

I will use wheels from the kit (first and second photos). Second type are from prototype (third photo).

I really enjoy your words! Thank you! I am very happy that this build and armored car are interesting!

For sure another refreshingly rare subject, designed around 1928 but the Depression prevented further development and by the time Hitler had borrowed enough money to resume in the mid 1930ís the 231 was considered cheaper & more advanced. One thing Artyom Ė maybe itís just the lighting in some photos but it looks like the curved edge along the sides of the hull is much softer in real life than the kitís? The difference is best seen between the 2nd and 3rd photos in your most recent update.

Yes,you are right. Funny that they have tested Magirus in USSR near Kazan. And almost all photos of only one armed vehicle are from Russia. Amazing.

Hull is very difficult. I see the little difference but I have nothing to do with that.

I have had to sacrifice historicity of air intake. I've decided to make it my way. Unfortunateluy no historical photos of this joint at all. So my version is possible I think. More welds to come.
