Three Fire engines - Betexa - 1:35

Hello

I will again build the three simple vehicles on the Betexa model building sheet so that they are child-friendly.

That means extra reinforcement and sealing so that they are equipped for the tough game use of a three-year-old.

The first car is a Tatra with about 25 parts, which is quite clear.

The print is very clean and the graphics are convincing

Cut out part 1 first

Sincerely
Kurt

Now first glue on the long sides ... insert the frame for the roof ...

... then the side parts ... glue the reinforcements piece by piece to the stern, the edges are "welded" with glue ...

... until everything is closed ... he is now on the wheels, but a lot has to be done to survive everyday gaming

Kurt

Inside I use a 2 mm gray cardboard brace to stabilize the whole thing, tabs are placed all around ...

... on which the sub-floor rests

Now to the wheels, which of course have to be modified due to my changes ...

... cover the halved wheel disks with 0.4 mm cardboard, glue the profile over it

Thus, the wheels should be stable enough to survive the tough game of a three-year-old

Sincerely
Kurt

The last parts, ladder, checker plates and mirrors ... mounted on the car. So the Tatra is finished, almost, an impregnation with glue is still pending ...

... with that he should be ready for the game ... with the others, some of whom have been in action for over a year and are still always ready for action!

Sincerely
Kurt
