Minimodel's Advent Calendar 2020

I intend to build as many as possible free gifts from Minimodel's Advent Calendar 2020, all 1/100, as they are, in my eyes, great models for the papermodelling world and are relatively user-friendly to builders without too much guess work. They provide clear building diagrams that are most welcome and helpful.

I have started with FE3190 TATRA 87 and now this, a bonus model, the FE3523 Ferrara Ladder FDNY for your views. There are some add-on's to the Ferrara Ladder that are not available in the kit. Try to identify them if you're curious or interested. Some photos were taken with a Nikon Coolpix P330 and some iPhone 12 Pro for comparison.

1. FE3190 TATRA 87

My friends, thanks for stopping by and your kind comments.
Ah yes, the firetruck can slide back and forth because all the wheels rotate.

No.3 FE3711 Jeep J10. and
No.4 FE3712 Honda ATC

are up. The yellow Honda ATC is a repaint of the original kit and front fork made from aluminum foil pill wraps. Also it was built on a single layer of normal printing paper that was laminated on both sides to make the paper stronger.
