I have the intention to build further NVA trailers. East German industry developed a trailer chassis called HL 10.00. This chassis could be fitted with a variety of superstructures, e.g. Feldküche, platform or Wasser Transport Anhänger. BTW a Robur with a Fieldkitchen was known as Verpflegungs Transport Einheit.
Today on 1st Weihnachtsfeiertag, I decided to start my LO 2002 model. It should be noted that it´s not shake-and-bake kit, but rather a zillion part 3D puzzle.
I start with cleaning the parts with detergent and then I cleaned the frame and the suspension springs. resin is VERY brittle so you have to be VERY careful not to cut of parts by accident.
When I was a little boy in Poland in the eighties the Robur trucks were very popular and a common sight on the streets. But I believe they were 4x2, not 4x4 (didn’t pay attention to that then!)
Once I was on a trip in DDR and saw a military Robur - what struck me then were the blackout plugs on the headlights. Maybe it would be cool to model these? They add visual interest to the “civilian-looking” truck.
Good luck with your build and have a nice day
the kit is the 4x4 configuration and the black driving lights or Nachtmarschanlage parts an be attached.
Balaton Model has another exciting kit to offer.
A Russian Excavator to fit on KrAZ 255 chassis.
Note that the KrAZ 255 Excavator is not a Balaton kit; it is produced by Gun Tower Models in Russia and Balaton is just a re-seller. Having said that, I have the Gun Tower AO-5015 Exavator from Gun Tower, and it is a well done kit, so I expect the KrAZ 255 conversion should be very good as well.
