Revell 1/24 Büssing 8000 S13

by Michael Rieß

I was in the mood to build a civilian vehicle again. This time i selected the Büssing 8000 S13 truck from Revell in 1/24 scale. The quality of the kit is superb and it costs only 25€, so the kit is very beneficial.

I painted the model with Revell aqua acrylic paints only. Mig and Vallejo pigments were used for the weathering.

During the 50s tremendous effort, vigour and energy was invested in the reconstruction of the Federal Republic of Germany. Great progress was also made in the development of the motor industry, particularly in the field of commercial vehicles. These were the years of the mighty heavy-duty lorries with their long bonnets, but they were underpowered and recognizable by the characteristic harsh noise of their four stroke diesel engines. In addition to Mercedes-Benz, MAN, Krupp, Magirus-Deutz, Henschel, Kaelble and Faun the Büssing 8000 S13 was one of the best known and most imposing lorries of the period.
