Airfix 1:76 Scale Vehicle Review

1 t Anhäger, 1:76 Modellbau Airfix 02318

Cargo trailers parked at a supply dump somewhere behind the front lines. The Airfix model of the 1-ton cargo trailer has the front wheel in the parked position. To recreate a towed trailer, cut the locating pin off the front wheel und glue the wheel between the supports of the trailer hitch. The trailer on the right has a scratchbuilt canvas tilt made from internal supports covered with tissue paper. The converted trailer has been painted vallejo 924 Russian Uniform Green which is a good match for British Standard Colour No. 15, the other has been painted FS 34088 (B.S. No. 15).

Bewertung

Exzellente Themenwahl, der 1 t Anhänger G518 »Ben Hur« war der Standard-Anhänger für Jeeps, mittlere Lkw, und Panzerfahrzeuge der US-Army im Zweiten Weltkrieg.

Scale-Modell mit guten Details; kompatibel mit Fujimi, Matchbox, Nitto, Crusader Models, JB Models, Milicast und Cromwell Models.

The canvas tilt is not detailed enough. The canvas normally sags noticeably, outlining the supports underneath.

The front wheel is modelled in the parked position. A moving trailer would have the front wheel raised to provide better ground clearance.

Parts No. 50 und No. 52, hub caps, are not to scale, they should be reduced in thickness.

The Airfix model of the 1-ton cargo trailer may be towed by tanks, half-tracks, und medium trucks like the Dodge Weapons Carrier.
