It is time for a kit review again, this time i show you Tamiya´s Citroën 11CV in 1/35 scale. This kit was first available in 1/48 scale, then Tamiya made one in 1/35 scale aswell.
In my opinion it is a simple kit for a good and fast result, but it is lacking some details like the missing engine or the meagre interior.
I don´t own the rights for the music in this video.
Music: "A cruce victoria" from the game "Europa Universalis III"
Yes, it is a pain.. and you don't know what may happen in the future as these things are always changing.. the big companies only look at their own interest, hardly ever to that of the small people.. :P
I had to change the music on one of my videos to a generic library track to make it viewable in Germany, frustrating but I guess thats the copyright thing at work. In this case it was part 2 of a 2 part tutorial so was necessary.
I will post another version tomorrow.. I know people moan at me for the choice of music but I have a reason to only use what I do.. everytime I try something different it gets blocked somewhere.. so I won't bother ever again.. It's just not worth the hassle.. :P
i barely use aftermarket stuff at all, i never bought extra decals for example. i have plenty of spare decals in a box, if necessary i find something in there. if not then i make a version where i can find decals in my box :) the only aftermarket stuff i bought are some photo-etched parts and resin zimmerit.
Nothing wrong in being picky, we all approach the hobby in different ways, which makes things interesting.. and I agree totally about the filler!! But some of my kits crave it, unfortunately.. :)
I meant to ask you, by the way.. do you ever buy any after market decals, for your tanks, vehicles or planes?? I guess they way you do the hobby you have little need for them, unlike me who builds plenty of the same mkits, like Spits and P-47's.. but I don't recall you ever mentioning using any.. :)
Looks like a nice wee kit, like you said, a bit simple but would make the ideal quick build!
I haven't been around much tha last few weeks and I haven't done any modelling at all in that time (we've been redecorating the outside of the house and I've attempted to get my baby - my fully modified Land Rover - going again - which I have so far singularly failed to do! The house looks nice though!!!)
Right, I'm off to watch your snow effect video! :)
You set your targets for a good kit a bit higher than me, I guess... I'm happy with pretty basic stuff, as it gives scope for some scratch modelling, should I so desire.. :) Speaking of which, the Ta 154 is in the slow lane at the moment, but I know you are a patient man... I just had to do that Mk.22 Spit.. and after that I will most likely build the Matchbox MiG 21.. :) :)
ich kann nur beim preis zustimmen, 15-20 euro wären eher angemessen. ansonsten ist es ganz und gar nicht das selbe, schau es dir doch mal genau an. die 1/35er version hat viel mehr einzelteile die beim kleineren bausatz irgendwo schon angegossen sind. technisch gesehen wurden die maße aufskaliert, aber nicht der komplette kit an sich. ich finde schon dass das einen unterschied macht :)
Das ist wirklich bis auf die Karosserie mit den separaten Türen und der Fahrerfigur in der Tat nur eine Vergrößerung des 1zu48er Bausatz (den hab ich grade fertig) und daher aus meiner Sicht mit 23-27 Euro zu teuer.
By my standards that kit looks perfectly fine... the sort of car or military vehicle I'd like to do, actually!! A very good review..
The car I bought at the show has no instrument panel, for some reason.. don't know why the dsigned the kit that way.. it has everything else.. :) Never mind..
Great Review. I built this kit (vid. on my channel) and it was easy to put together, but painting the chromw and all that was hard. And so much detail was lacking, overall its a great kit though and good quality, good for practicing weathering and chipping.
That is a great review! My Mercedes Benz G4 is complicated compared to this kit. ICM doesn't give the number of parts on my kit as far as I can read but I'm guessing it's around 300 parts. This kit is easy to build compared to mine. Tamiya make really good quality kits and I'm sure it's going to look good once you build it. Thanks for putting your review on Youtube. I'm more inspired to build my G4 more than ever. Take care.
That's pretty much my only problem with Tamiya kits, is their lack of interior detail. But I guess they have to strike a balance between detail and cost, and also consider what can actually be seen, a problem with some Trumpeter kits I've seen, that have lots of detail, none of which can be seen!
well yes that is right, but i think they thought that a german soldier would be better according to their sortiment offering a lot of german military vehicles.
i know that miniart and masterbox released quite a lot cars of this perios. i made two of them already, thats why i got this one here because i feel like doing some classic cars again :)
the whole "where are the subs???" thing starts to annoy me a little bit, i never forgot to add them nor wasn´t i able to get them working. it just needs a couple of minutes to add them manually. if the subtitles are not there just wait a few moments.
For towns, each building is described, along with what and who can you can talk to, who to buy skills from, and what quests are available. For the outlying areas, the dungeons are listed.
Dungeon maps are not given -- they would be too extensive to fit easily into a web page and the automapping in the game is excellent. Also, every dungeon should be explored completely to get all of the loot, but only puzzles and hidden locations are described. I also skip most of the fighting because it isnt something that you can easily describe, nor does it matter in most places, except that you have to survive it. I do list the creatures that you will encounter in a dungeon or grid location to give you an idea of how difficult the location is.
Stores are listed with a "buy" and "sell". The "buy" value is multiplied by the items value to determine the price you have to pay for it. The "sell" value is divided by the items value to determine the price you can sell it to the store for. Higher is always worse, and a "buy" or "sell" of 1 means that you are buying/selling an item at cost.
Every location has a "reset" timer. This starts when you first enter the area, and after it "goes off", the entire grid square resets: monsters reappear and random treasure is replaced. Nonrandom treasure (including most stat-gaining liquids) is not replaced. All dungeons have a reset of 2 years (24 months), unless otherwise noted. Overland areas have reset times listed with their descriptions.
Artifacts are unique items that can be found. They come in two flavors: Minor artifacts are always benificial and have a value of 20000gp. Major artifacts always have a drawback, but their benificial powers are much stronger. They have a value of 30000gp. There are 15 minor and 15 major artifacts -- some of these artifacts are placed at specific locations; others are randomly generated.
