German trailer Sd.Anh.473. 1:33 Scale

Gents

It's been quite a while since I've posted a build thread on this form. But like buses, this has come in the form of three builds at once.

These models have been kindly donated by Adam. And are available commercially from Swiatzkartonu

https://swiatzkartonu.eu/

This model is of the German WW2 military trailer Sd.Anh.473. And is available in 1:33 scale

I plan to build each model as part of a separate diorama.

The model itself is of straightforward construction. And is little more than a box on wheels. A bit like the original

Thought I would start with the tyres and wheels first. As they are common items to all three variants.

I've used cereal packet as cardstock. This seems to be about 0.75 mm. Thick enough for my needs.

The good thing about painting, is not having to worry about white edges.

Trailer 09 by Tim Crowe, on Flickr

Gave them a few coats of varnish and a good sanding to smooth things over.

The tread was fun to stick on. Needed lots of pre-forming needed. Still had 15 goes to get it right.

A thick coat of matt black. Covers so much up.

How did you score the tire sides?

The tyre sides are scored using a scalpel blade. Then formed round into a circle and joined up.

I changed the joint from overlap to butted. Makes for a neater appearance. A coat of varnish and sanding did the rest.

Glued the major parts onto thin card stock. Used white glue, this will cause major warping. But nothing that can't be undone

Trailer 13 by Tim Crowe, on Flickr

Cut all the parts out and tacked them together using superglue. Finished the joints off using white glue.

Trailer 14 by Tim Crowe, on Flickr

Leaving the roofs off till last. Got to put an interior in first.

Started to fit out the trailer interiors:

Trailer 15 by Tim Crowe, on Flickr

I have found one period photograph showing a little bit of the interior.

I am using this photo as inspiration and an awful lot of guesswork. The box shapes are for the storage cupboards, that are accessible from the outside. Not doing a great deal of detail. Only what is viewable through the door.

So am I correct to assume the basic platform remains the same across the production of these wagons while the upper box configuration could be different among production batches?

The reason I ask is because the reference photo shows the open door in a different location than on the models you are building.

This is in no way a criticism of the model or your fantastic results thus far, just a observation that made me curious.

I must have too much time on my hands while being on government mandated quarantine from this viral pandemic event.
