Daimler-Benz G-4 "Geländewagen" (cross-country vehicle) 1/35 conversion.

Found some plastic at the Hobby Shop yesterday.
Daimler-Benz G-4 1939 production. 1/35 scale by, ICM.
Lets see where this goes...
Very doubtful that it will end up Out Of The Box.
Wish me good luck and happy plastic model building.
Thank you.

No famous passengers please! Kidding, it is your model, work your magic on it.

Regards,
Shark...your pretty sharp. Not to worry, no "(in)famous" passengers in this one.

There are plenty of other places to go and explore.

Got my 'bungee cord' strapped on and jumping in feet first.

Here is a photo of the work so far.

Very detailed kit with many small delicate parts.

Memo to self: try not to be 'heavy handed' with this one.

thanks

Marco.

Great question. I like the two tone version.
"vacum plate silver" wow what a name for that color.

This version will be semi-gloss to flat finish with weathering done wth artist oils.

Good luck with your 'gloss' paint on your build. The only suggestion (I have) is to use the matalic range of paints from Alclad.

Take care and please post your G-4 here on planetarmor.
Thnk you.

The out of the box glued up parts so far.

The rear suspension has...I lost count how many parts.

There are plenty of mold lines that will be cleaned up with micro router sanding bitts.

Almost ready for rear cab conversion and photo-etch added to front grill.

Thank you.

Cutting plastic and the "conversion" begins.

Cut out the plastic molded grill and added rod for new inner edge.
