Aviattic Marienfelde Lorry (1:32) Build Log
« on: January 09, 2016, 01:10:22 AM »
For a detailed look at this exceptional kit, please see Des's fine review here:
http://forum.ww1aircraftmodels.com/index.php?topic=6727.0

Mine arrived in great shape and I can't say enough good things about the kit, its packing, etc. Prior to beginning my build, I did want to share pics of how some of the parts were packaged--taped to foam boards and inserted in plastic bags (not shown):





The top photo shows the components of the truck bed and the bottom the finely-detailed chassis. In all cases, mold plugs are minimal and can simply be snipped-off with the appropriate nippers. Clean-up is minimal and can be done with fingernails and a few swipes with sandpaper.

I plan to begin construction in the next few days. This will be my first resin kit so please bear with me  :)

I know I am biased, but I want people to appreciate the incredible chassis molding which includes rear springs as well as transmission and driveshaft brake (as well as other details) with tons of undercuts yet all molded in one piece. I don't know how the guy did it.

Hello,
this may be a silly question: I've seen pics of that model and of the wonderful driver figure from Stevew Warrilow, but: Is it true that this vehicle's got right-hand drive? British kit, ok, but German car...

Yes Borsos, the kit does depict this as a right hand drive.

Des, thank you for your fast answer.
Hm, that's strange, I cannot see any reason for this at the moment. It is true that in Austria they drove on the left OR on the right side in some regions till 1935, but not in Germany. Since Napoleon introduced driving on the right they kept driving on the right until today... So a rhd makes no real sense for me in a German car...

Here is a period photo which shows this truck as being RHD.

Sorry to step in on your topic Mark but Borsos has a point.

I beg your pardon too, Mark!
yes, and I even found more on Printerest. Really strange... It's the first German car I've ever seen with rhd - and I visit car museums all around here since I was a kid...
Sorry again

No mystery - the German Emperor Kaiser Wilhelm has planned ahead that he will catch first France and then England.
In this case, the german driver sitting on the right side.......................  ::)  ;D

It's not a big mystery -- RHD/LHD was simply not standardized like we think of today.

Or it may have a psychological reason - emperor Willie had a crippled LEFT arm...   :)

Sorry again, Marc, RhD/LHD,whatever,  it's looking like a brilliant build of a brilliant kit!
