1:144 - HORCH 108 4x4 TYPE a1 - (4 PACK)
This is a scalemodel of the German 'Horch108' type a1, a 4x4 personnel carrier for 1:144 WW2 dioramas. Type a1 was produced early in the war. Main visual difference with the 'type 40' is the spare tires on the outside. Link to my other 1/144 models
- (2 pack available) -
The model is designed to be printed in 13 parts;
- (4x) Main vehicle (2 closed canopy, 2 open)
- (4x) German driver
- (4x) Sprue with roof, spare tires, seats, tires, ...
- (3x) Crew of 5 soldiers (max file limit)
- Model is based on blueprints to maximize accuracy.
- Designed and optimized for shapeways to produce it as cheap as possible in 'frosted detail'.
Before painting, always degrease your model in a glass of lukewarm water and a drop of dishwashing soap (do not use a dishwasher!). Allow it to dry completely before painting.
Aplie a thin layer of paint, use 'drybrush' techniques to bring the detail alive. Paint the inside and figures first before gluing. If you don't have a lot of experience; watch multiple 'tutorials' on youtube about painting model vehicles. You can't rush art, so take your time to finish the model ;).
1:144 is a popular scale for aircraft and half the size of 1:72 models. It's a great scale when creating large dioramas with multiple models in one scene, especially if you don't have much space available. You can combine tanks, airplanes, vehicles, buildings... to create an epic historical battle landscape. (Normandy, Battle of the bulge,...)
Also very small diorama's with just one vehicule can be an intriguing 'eye-catcher' on your desk.
Thanks for stopping by & have fun!
