Continuing in my decision to build the Zvezda Snap-Tight kits by "snap" alone I turned my attention to the Opel Blitz kit. I must say that this model really is very good, the parts fit is superb and the delicacy of the casting work is amazing.
the "Opel Blitz" symbol on the radiator is visible
When first confronted with this odd collection of bits I was concerned that there would be little chance of it going together wiothout some serioud gaps
but it went together exactly and easilt
the fit of the parts was amazing
the completed cab
details of the undercarraige, be careful when pushing the wheels on these are delicate
the cab waiting for the chassis to be assembled
the rear wheels are duals, the inner wheel has the dished side facing the frams and the flat side facing the other wheel
the front axel was very tight, I chickened out and trine the shaft down a little to ease the fit
the suspension units ready to go onto the frame
This kit was built using no glue, the tightness of the fit concerned me at times, but once it was assembled it was solid as a rock. I think that you could build a whole collection of these models and really not need glue, they are that finely designed and cast. The models looks great as well.
Very Highly Recommended, John
