Hello, here are some pics of my Opel Blitz and SS trailer.
The trailer is from a old GI Joe jeep from the 60's. I got it off ebay for 10 dollars.
Blitz is in Tamiya German Gray. I was going to do camo but I wanted something different
then the others. I used Final Prep (see below) to get off the oils. The Tamiya paint gave me no troubles
at all. I drilled the wheels out with a dremil. The lights are from TheToySurgen. Thanks Dennis....The back I made out of
balsa wood. For the windows I used clear styrene. The seats were out of that old GI Joe jeep. I cut up the old fender with
a dremil to make them look more real. All said and done with the cost of the Opel it was about $170 with everything and only
a few hours.
Final Prep takes off all the oils and makes the paint stick better. I just put it on a dust free rag and wiped
it down. Wait about 10 mins. before you paint so it can dry. I got it at Home Depot.
I too had troubles
finding a glue to stick to JD's stuff. I found the best glue its called E6000. You can use with out any final prep. Its at
most craft stores and walmart. I have been using it for years. I found out about it when I was a cadet. We used it to put
on our patchs. Its so strong you can even wash cloths with the patchs on them. Its a little tricky beacuse its thick. I use
a tooth pick to apply it.
