On the Small Side..

Updated: Dec 27, 2019

Hobby Frank here! Occasionally I get to do a build for a customer, these are Walther's HO scale Heavy Forklifts actually manufactured by Kibri. The kit is decent for the size... yes being HO scale makes them kinda on the small side. The quality is typical of their kits had no real issues except the windows; left unpainted they would work but and some primer and color and they are too large to fit inside. The issue is easily remedied by cutting out separate windows from clear stock and adding them to the model. The paint was Testors JD yellow the lift was left unpainted since it can be set to any height desired and paint would have made it sticky. The forks and other details were Tamiya Gunmetal. All in all the customer was pleased and that's most important!!
