Minarions Henschel Truck

When I saw that Minarions had produced a 1/56th Scale Henschel Heavy Truck I thought that it would be perfect for my German Pulp Gang. Its not quite the same version as in the Indiana Jones Movie but that was just a mock up of the real thing. (I had seen it in a farmers shed in Dorset while I was in the UK sometime in the eighties.)

The model was really easy to put together and more like a plastic kit in the thinness of the parts and only a very small amount of flash. When I assembled the wheels with the chassis upside down I was pleased to see all the wheels lined up. After the glue had set I turned it over to find all the wheels touched the ground. Very nice.

I felt that the chassis lacked a bit of detail so I added some storage boxes and chassis rails. I also added some tools to the Cab sides and fitted the crew which had been painted earlier.

I am very pleased with the completed Truck which will serve my Nazi's well.

  3. A brilliant job, congratulations!
    Some likely improvements there to think about - especially regarding chassis rails. Thanks for sharing it.
