There was a time 20+ years ago, when it was impossible to get your hands on a 20mm Opel Blitz and inspired by a post on Will's Wargames Blog I thought I'd share a couple of photos of two British vehicles that made their way into the miniature WW2 German arsenal.
This rehashed old Airfix Austin K6 was a solution, and the vehicle is still in my collection today from back then
Nowadays of course you don't need to go to such a ridiculous end as there are so many kits and ready-made options available.
Another "Ersatz" vehicle was this Opel Blitz ambulance bus below. This was a more recent concoction, using a die-cast Bedford OB Utility bus. There are kits of the Opel Blitz bus available but at the time I thought that from a distance this could make the grade.
Happy New Year to all you fellow modellers, gamers and toy collectors out there !
