In Topic: Revell Ag Trabant 601S Universal "25 Jahre Mauerfall"

Today, 09:49 AM

A year or two before the Wall fell, I had a political science professor at the Universirty of Minnesota, tell the class I was in, that we would not see a united Germany in our life time. And here it is. It's been 25 years since the fall of the Berlin Wall. Amazing.



Same thing for me, back in late 80's, Pol Sc, teacher told us; US/CCCP "cold war"  would outlast our generation, could not believe what was happening in Berlin/ Nov'89, unforgetable, incredible & historical moment indeed :o .


20...25...Guess Revell will prepare a... 30th annivesary edition of this ugly "thing"? :P

Thanx to all :rolleyes: ...

(lighting in pictures not the best!)


Knew this kit a bit, already made it 2 or 3 times since the 80s...

Assembly was pretty easy, for such an old kit, typical of Monograms car kits of the period, simple & easy assemblies, nearly no serious fitting (parts) problems...closed top piece, in lower back doesnt fit perfectly, but not so bad, V12 pretty simple but passable, heater hoses/wire looms nice touch, but no hinges (or pins) under hood to  safely place the hood?!?! :wacko: :
