Krupp Titan SWL 80

Due to the fact it is a review-model, the build will be mostly OOB, but I will add some extra details in wiring and stuff. I haven''t made pictures yet, but the chassis is mostly assembled and so is the cabin. (I didn't followed the instructions, where I have to assemble the painted cabinparts around the interior).
I hope to show some pictures tomorrow. In the meanwhile I give you the box-art:

I made today the first pictures:
This is how the partly assembled chassis looks like now, I will add some more parts and start some detailling before it will get it's paintcoat.
The tent for the back has been glued together, I don't think I will use it in the end, but wanted to glue something together
Here is where I went away from the manual, it said that I had to build the cabin around the interior, but in order to get everything nicely painted, I decided to put the cabin together before the end-assembly.
I also added the firewall

And a new approach I've been starting to work on lately. I get all the parts of the sprues, put them in bags with different colors. Work on the parts and paint them in batches. Makes my modelling a whole lot more efficient.

As with everything, I started with putting the bodywork in primer.
I had to alter the roof a little bit, I glued the overheadcabinets in, since that part will stick out the cabin. This way I can fill the seem and shoot it in bodycolor.
And the first color (Ferrari's Rubino Micalizzato) on the bodywork.

After I put on the second color (Aston Martin Berwick Bronse), it looks like this:
I am content with it, it does have some sort of premium look to it.

After a long busy period, I managed to get some more work done on the Krupp. I actually want to finish it within the next 2 weeks. So I can finish up some other work.
I started yesterday morning with the frame, it is now red semigloss and is ready to receive more parts.
This is the finished rear-axle.
And the start on the engine, which is nicely detailed, but that will be visible later on in this update
Some more parts added to the frame

Together with the rear axle
The engine got more dressed up as well.
A better view

These cross-members are a pain, they are hard to line up and hard to keep up right. I wished Revell had done the engineering a little different.

The interior is also nicely detailled and if you look good, that 3rd man would be seriously uncomfortable, having all those sticks between his legs.
And the finished engine:

@Old Albion, correct, actually this engine consist of 2 3cilinder 2-stroke engines, welded together to get a straight six

Great looking Engine and chassis.
