I agree with Braun on the wheels, it makes it look sort of toyish. The rest looks good though. :D

From looking at the reference pictures in this thread, the front tires are skinny and the back are the same but there are 2 on each side.

EDIT: 1 more critique The hood part looks a little short. http://www.france1940.bigpondhosting.com/large%20images/Opel_Blitz_3t.jpg In that pic, from the nose to the windshield looks a little longer than what you have it.

those pictures I posted werent really reference pics because two of them are toys and the third is another model that isnt really correct in itself. Try to find either good historical pics or I bet Taranov can get some detailed blueprints to work off of in minutes. You have a good start there, but the key to a good model is historical accuracy in shape. You need to get the basic shape and angles perfect, details can be picked up in the skins. Your off to a great start, but I'd stress, especially for this mod, that you try and get as true to life as possible. It goes a long way in creating realism.

Ok, you're a machine tonight huh. One thing actually that I forgot to mention is circled in blue. There isn't really a step like that on the side going from door to front of the grill. blitza.jpg Another pic blitzsk1.jpg Seems in most pictures there's some kind of box under the carrage at the back of the cab. It also looks like the very bottom of the back of the cab curves in a bit. I guess it all depends on which model year you're modeling.
