Why I like the One-minute Page builder:
The second addition to the Italeri sWS range, this is a perhaps a strange and
relatively unknown subject, making it an interesting one. Made with injection
moulded plastic (My specialty) with “Link ‘n’ Length” tracks. It includes a decal
sheet with two thin national crosses, two divisional markings, and a custom license
plate template, a real treat to people who build up a spares box collection. It also
includes a nickname, “Thor”. A real nice feature is that it features a full interior with
separately moulded hatches, as well as the fuel tank, full suspension and transmission,
but no engine. The werfer is mounted on a revolving turret and includes 10 shells, but
no stenciling is provided for the shells. The front wheels steer, a good idea for
diorama modelers who hate straight wheels. On to construction. Every thing went
together well, but I accidentally snapped off both front wheels while trying to steer
them. I built the tracks completely, then quickly painted them with fast drying
enamels (Testors Rust drybrushed with Steel) And applied them to the painted
running gear. The base coat was Testors Matt Desert Tan with Humbrol Matt Leather
And No.30 Matt Green mottling. The interior was painted Humbrol Matt White and
the floor plates were painted Humbrol Tank Grey. The entire interior was drybrushed
with Testors Steel. Weathering consisted of a light drybrushing of Humbrol Matt
White to make a “ Factory-Fresh” machine. Overall, a good kit, but I would
recommend it to more experienced modelers.
