In the early 1930s, the German firm Opel AG produced a light and fast truck called Blitz, capable of transporting a large quantity of material (3000 kg) despite its low weight. The German Army was seduced by the performance of the vehicle and it gave the first orders to Opel. Various versions were easily developed, and this truck fast became the primary carrier of the German Army.
The Opel Blitz used on most battlefields and showed great resistance to long distances and poor road conditions.
82,356 trucks were built between April 1937 and July 1944.
The Z scale model is about 27mm long, 10mm wide and 12mm high and weighs only 2 grammes. Available with a fixed or removable canopy. A fixed-bodied radio version is also available (Kfz.68).
