Here's another little piece for diorama consideration.  The kit is very well detailed for it's size with 53 pcs.  Getting the tiny parts off the sprue without breakage is challenging.  If that doesn't get you, sanding flash or sprue leftovers might do it.







Paint is olive-drab.  Interior brown leather with a bit of a wash and highlights.




These parts were painted prior to assembly - its amazing how handling rubs paint off these tiny bits.  But it does set on all 4 wheels!




Steering wheel rim still needs a wash.  The rear seat will be placed after the interior is inserted to assure it mates to the rear bodywork.




Wow!  Closeup photos in this scale are sure revealing.

Thanks for looking,
Mike

looking good.......you need to take a pic along side a Tamiya jar to give it a sense of size

Nice one Mike.

I checked on the size of the 1:1 and in 1:72, it scales out to 61mm or 8mm less that the painting instructions diagram.

Wow, That is small !
Neat little car though. Be cool to have this kind of stuff in the larger scales. Wouldn't this in 1:16 be a nice model to work with ?

The 1/72 stuff always makes my eyes cross in sympathy to the builder, lol. There's a lot of detailing in this one that, for the scale, is really impressive. Looking forward to seeing the development.

Little update time.

Interior is in, body is on, fenders in place.




And here's the size comparison.


Thanks for looking and your comments.

Nice progress! The scale comparison really drives home how teeny this kit is.

Time to call this one finished.  Brushed a coat of Tamiya Clear over the body panels and placed the decals on.  Also got the tiny little lights and horn on somewhat straight.  Fun trying to use the CA Accelerator in one hand while trying to keep the part aligned with the other.

Completed thread to follow soon.



Just as I finished this, I saw Roden released a 1/72 Vauxhall WWI Ambulance which I immediately ordered.

Thanks for your comments and views,
Mike
