Mercedes Benz L3000 - Snowplow- 1/35 by Italeri, Plus Model


Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

a small project... a German Snowplow on base of the Mercedes Benz L3000 lorry. The kit of the truck is an old kit from Italeri, the 4-wheeldrive upgrade and the snow plow are coming from Plus Model, the resin wheels from Signifer. The cargo bed was modified with Evergreen stripes. 

The painting so far started with a layer of black primer, then German Grey from Tamiya, ligthend with a light grey. Several oil colors followed - white, blue, brwon and black. Lighter ones on top, darker ones in the shadow arreas.

Next step is a layer of clear coat, then demasking the windows. Then further weathering. On the cargo bed I will add the 3 barrels, plus ... don't know yet.... some counterweight to the snow plow ..

Hello,

 

a small update.

 

The barrels on the bed were glued in place and secured with some rope. 

 

A layer of matt/shiny clear coat followed.

Next follows a painting of the windows in clear coat matt (tarnished from the cold outside), and the load on the cargo bed.

 

Cheers

Hello,

 

I have decided to make a small winter diorama for the snowplow. Never tried that and never thought about snow dioramas... specially never thought about snow in Summer :)  But I want to try it :) 

 

The base for the diorama is a small house with a small piece of street. The diorama comes from Miniart. First I have glued all main-parts together.

Cheers

Micha
