Voiture Tout Terrain VW K1 Type 82 Kübelwagen, 1/72 Maquette Hasegawa MT12

Luftwaffe Kübelwagen parked at a captured Airfield somewhere in France. The Hasegawa model of the Kübel has a clear plastic windshield avec cast-on frame et wipers. Some careful painting around the edges of the glass will be required, but the model is well worth the effort. Alternatively, masking fluid may be used to protect both sides of the glass during spray-painting. Similar models a l'échelle 1/76 are typically sold without a windshield, requiring that the modéliste serieux insert a piece of clear plastic sheet into the windshield frame. The Hasegawa kit is the better choice by far.

Évaluation

  • Scale model avec much raised detail. The VW logo on the spare tire is very prominent.
  • Choix de sujet excellent, the Kübelwagen was one of the most common military véhicules of the Wehrmacht.
  • Few parts, easy to build. This kit fits together nicely.
  • Choice of open ou closed top, armed ou unarmed.
  • Front wheels may be attached in a turned position.
  • Compatible avec ESCI, Revell, CDC, et Fine Scale Factory.
  • Le motocycliste et le conducteur de Kübelwagen have unrealistically large heads et helmets. These should be replaced by proper heads taken from other 1/72 scale figurines.
  • The machine gun mounted on the Kübelwagen is nicely sculpted, but the ammunition drum is missing.
  • The open canvas top does not fit properly. Diorama builders may want to replace this part avec an item built from pianowire et tissue paper.
  • Doors may not be cut open easily. The material thickness has been reduced at the top of the door, but the lower parts of the door panels are the same thickness as the rest of the véhicule body.
  • The spare tire rests too high above the bonnet. The problem may be corrected by slightly reducing the height of the mounting bracked.

Conversions

  • Unarmed Staff Car
  • Reconnaissance Véhicule avec MG 34 ou MG 42

The Hasegawa model of the Kübelwagen is a must-have for modélistes, joueurs de guerre et dioramistes. This boxed set is good value for money, any spare side-cars may be used to raise Kradschützen unités d'infanterie motocycliste.
