Tom -- I've got my eyes on that one for an upcoming tow truck!  There are also several other versions of the Gaz ... a couple already out ... and they look quite good from the reviews/builds that have already been posted on the military forums.

Here's another:  ICM Models Ford V3000, 1941 production ... this one is already out and widely available ... covered by a number of reviews/builds on the web already.  IIRC, the differences between this and the US version are very slight ... think the US version had a split windshield and some other very subtle differences.

PS -- If you do an IMAGE search for "Miniart Gaz" or "ICM Ford V3000" etc ... you'll quickly stumble onto the review and build threads that have the better photos.  ;)

Cheers,
Dallas

Miniart has the Harley WLA motorcyles packaged several different ways ... repair crew, MP's and individually ... Anders has shown some of these in his Blacksmith Shop thread ...

Bronco makes the Triumph 3HW's ... which I understand can be converted to the civilian versions fairly easily ...

And Anders "might" be at work on some of the new Diopark Honda's too ...

Again, do an IMAGE search for any of these and you'll find review/build threads with lots of photos ... Dallas

Meng modern pick-up. (http://www.perthmilitarymodelling.com/reviews/vehicles/meng/vs001.html) Apparently based on the 1997 Toyota HiLux 4x4 Duel Cab SR5.

Also, Lindberg Models makes quite a few civillian auto plastic models in 1/32. (I tried to find a link to a seller that carries them and allows you to sort by scale, but had no luck. Most of the vehicles are ~30's to 50's era.)

Who makes a good 1:35 motorcycle kit i could cannibalize?
You know, good details and a nice frame so I could show it w/o the engine.
Thinking my "girls" could be using it to construct their flying machine......

Marty --

I have one of the MasterBox "German Motorcycle Repair Crew" sets stashed for a similar project -- couple of photos below.  It's a BMW R75 with sidecar ... can be built with engine removed, etc.

That version includes figures and some other bits, but it does NOT have the photo-etched wheel spokes.

"Repair" version with extra figures, but PLASTIC wheel spokes (more photos on site):
http://mbltd.info/3560.htm

Regular version of bike with PHOTO-ETCH wheel spokes -- believe everything else is the same, so you could build it in assemblies as shown in the "repair" version:

These are 1/32 kits from ARI. I think they are small enough, and unique enough vehicles that you might be able to pass them off as 1/35. If using figures just use some that are on the large end of the 1/35 spectrum.

The kits ran from $7 to $9 (top one being the 7). They are older molds, and do require some clean-up, and can stand to have some additional and refined detiling done with styrene......but all in all, a heck of a deal, for some very interesting pieces. The top kit (which is the one I will be working with) consists of 25 parts (supposed to be 27, but my kit was missing the 2 windows), and a decal sheet.

Marc:

They sort of remind me of the USPS scooters from the late 1960's.  I think they were made by Cushman.  Not sure of the spelling. 

William & Mary College's gardeners have a fleet of newer model John Deere Gators which also are similar.  W&M has added rotating beacons on the top of them because you will find them scurrying all around the college, even on the city streets, and their composting facility is about 3/4 mile from the central campus.  Sort of remind me of green Vietnamese Cockroaches.

Marc,

Thanks for posting this. I had seen it and then lost the link again. I think it's mucho cool. If in the right setting you might be able to skate it through in a 1/35 scene.

Looks lik something that Gordon will run right out and buy...probably Nick & Barney as well.  ;D ;D

indeed very cool and usable for a lot of nice diorama's.

In the latest Tamiya Model Magazine there are some (rather small) very nice pictures of civilian diorama's with a lot of character. These were presented at the SHIZUOKA Show but I have not been able to find them yet on the net. If I find some I will post them.

I they buy one of those Mini's, they should remember to put the steering wheel on the correct side of the car  ;D  ;)

Marc, when you first tempted me with this I had to explain just how expensive it would end being after postage & customs, etc something equivalent of $150 and it ain't getting any cheaper  :(

Marc, steering wheel is on the right side  ..... Nick is better than me in explaining the downsides of not remaining a loyal colony  ;D

  That's right drag me into it , why don't you .

   Actually , I don't think Holland ( I think that is where you live , Marc988 . Apologies if I've got that wrong ) was ever a British colony , though it should have been .

   I believe that it is only Australia and New Zealand ( with a few islands that one forgets their names ) that remain loyal , though I do wonder about that sometimes when they start playing up !

Nick, your knowledge of history is so terrible. Australia was a penal colony (known to American insurance companies as Colonial Penn). New Zealand was settled by Russell Postlewaight from Old Zealand, hence its name. Even Britain wasn't a British colony. It was an American colony gone awry. Or possibly awhiskey.

The United States have existed as the dominant world power since the age of Piltdown Man and its inhabitants remain as primitive now as then. Americans have conquered all other nations since the invention of baseball; our pitchers hurl rocks more accurately than those of other nations.

I am so disappointed, Nick, so very disappointed. And possibly lactose intolerant.

  I knew it was a mistake learnin' you Yanks to reed and right as you now get all of your knowledge from that eminent historian Bill Bryson . And I think you'll find that baseball has its origins in that fine old West Country pursuit of cowpat hurling .
   Still , I can't argue about you being just as primitive now as then , because you still drive on the wrong side of the road ( notice the skilful way that I brought the subject back to the beginning again ? ) .

Didn't baseball originate from rounders?   

Best not to critisise our American friends for which side of the road they drive on, the only true American car I have ever driven didn't seem to come with any steering at all, it accelerated about as quick as continental drift and the brakes were either off or the wheels were locked.  Not that the latter seems to have any bearing on the thing actually stopping!  Very comfy seats though, it was a dodge something or other I think.

Nick, you are right (as in correct) that The Netherlands (Holland is just a part of) was never a colony from Britain. We have (had) our share and have even "gave" you guys a colony (something about Nieuw Amsterdam and 1674)  ;D

Gordon, I understand your loyalty. As for the Mini on the picture, I agree that it has the steering wheel on the right side but that does not mean it is actually on the right side.  I think that the majority of the cars on this globe have their steering wheels on the left side and therfore making it for common perception the right side !  ;D  ;)

So in the end, the guys with the steering wheel on the right side of the vehicle, actually drive on the right side of the road !!  ;D ::)

As for baseball; who won the last world championship baseball in 2011 ? (I'll give you a hint; a small country with red, white and blue in their nations flag)  ;D
Now where is that corner I can hide ??  :P



To get topic back on track; some time ago I had seen a 1:35 or 32 VW beetle.
Does anybody know who makes this kit and possibly if it is still available ?

Marc, sorry assumed that after the steering wheel comment you had to be one of our "friends"from across the pond.

VW Beetle week you can still pick up the Airfix 1/32 version on E Bay...... Think it's an early 60's version has it a Single rather than spilt rear window.

Think Tamyia currently have an early war version of the Beetle in 1/35 scale , maybe 1/48 ?

Not sure if its a long gone model or not released yet but its not shown in the Resincast catalogue at Historex best bet to enquire is at http://www.historexagents.com/shop/hxshop.php you will find them helpful more than Resincast direct But you can bet its bloody expensive and quality wise looks like the dog has chewed it like most of there other junk they turn out !!

One of those evenings when you just can't summon up the energy to do some modelling, so trawled through the web sites. Found Wespemodels (wespemodels.ro) who do a 1/35th scale Fordson Thames tractor unit (32.00 Euros on their web page). Its in resin -looks a bit basic but could possibly be "improved". They also do Fords and Dodges which appear very "civilian".

Airfix makes a 1/32 scale WW1 period London double decker bus. With research may be converted to a troop carrier being used on the continent, also as a gun platform and a pigeon loft. I understand that Airfix makes or did a version of a troop carrier but photos IMO not so great, better off converting. Tamiya makes a 1/35 Kubelwagen that could be converted into the Volkswagen "Thing" a 70s version.

Especially the 4 door cab with the flat bed could be very usefull in a civilian diorama.

looks like it is ready to be used in a diorama of Killdozer (in the book it was a D7).

recently saw a picture of a mini excavator on a small 54mm figure diorama but unfortunately could not make a decent photo.

Anybody know who produces such a kit ?

Thanks for posting those images. Looks as though the kit builds into a nice model. -- Russ

Y'know, I hate to be a Grinch (well...), but as nice as a tractor model in ANY scale would be, those look like Solidworks renderings and not the model. I doubt that a 1/35 kit would have that sharpness! A great job for someone to super-detail though...    DF
