"Kraz" 255 B / Renova / 1:25 [FERTIG]

After having finished the "Radomka" (Schiffahrt-Bauberichte)I took some time for choosing my next model. I can now announce that I just started the Kraz 255B from Renova in scale 1:25, available since a short time. I think that for the moment only the test build has been treated in this forum. First pictures of building of frame of this exciting model to be shown in a few days.

Mine is, believe it or not 000037, a very early one; I got it from www. kartonmodellbau.com, very reliable and very interesting prices.
With best regards.

Kraz 255 B 1:25

I promised to show you the first pictures of this new Renova model. Well, here they are. The first one is a general view of the chassis under construction:

And this one shows the first finished sub-assembly, the front bumper. Fit of the model is excellent as are the graphics. You want to know about details..? Model on picture contains already 40 bolts of 1mm. diameter each!

Then I added two huge fuel tanks at both sides, the first parts to be printed in that typical matt green army color. I must say I think they look rather authentic:

Hello Leif,
Thanks for your positive comment on my 1:25 "Kraz".
I am not a specialist in miltary vehicles; I usually build civil ships -my last one was the "Radomka" (see the thread). But what fascinates me in these recent issues like the "Kraz" is the incredible detail that they offer plus the enormous number of parts (in this case some 5600...) . I don't know if I will ever finish it. What's worse: another model is already waiting in the drawer: the 1:25 "Sd.Kfz. 9 "Famo" from Angraf. That one contains more then 7000 parts.... 8o

With best regards,
J.C. van den Bergh

jcvandenbergh, nice fuel tanks and when I see your reply to Leif - makes a smile on my face, since last week received "Famo" /would be my first "tracked"/ absolutely detailed model. Trust that next week will fully concentrate on KrAZ /on neighbour forum/

Hi there Nicolai,
Sure these diagrams will be useful! I already discovered on the drawings some "missing" parts that I will certainly add to my model (like cooling pipes etc.). So thanks for the great hint!

RE: Kraz 255 B 1:25

Between the fuel tanks I mounted the hoist. The cable can of course be used directly towards the back, but there is another way of using it as shown in my model: the cable is led trough the wheelblocks at the rear of the chassis, then all the way back forward along the chassis and finally through the front bumper. In that way the vehicle can pull itself in forward direction out of the mud. The cable itself was made from special white colored silk thread normally used for pearl chains and painted in the right color; it has the structure of a twisted steel cable.

jcvandenbergh, you are right and very nice done hoist with cable for self pulling out of "troubles" however there is one more option:

- put the cable thru the floor of shipping space /eg if needs to be something self loaded/

anyway as wrote already - very nice neat build
keep on doin´in this way

Work on the engine is well on its way, but far from beeing finished; starter motor, complete exhaust system, gear box and many other parts are still to be added, but many other parts are already there: injection system, air intakes and air filter between the engine heads, water pump, compressor, alternator and fan, oil filters etc. On two of the pictures I placed the engine on its location inside the chassis to give an idea of how it will look.

Sorry to have you kept waiting for new pictures. The reason is that some of the steps in building during the last few weeks were so horribly difficult that I should warn those who consider to start building the Kraz...
The front part of the gear box (where is touches the engine block) is an example of how complicated this model really is. Part 97 is nothing less then a nightmare (if you are building the model you will sure know what I am talking about!) The building instructions even warn you and a spare part is available for when things go wrong.
And then there is the exhaust system.... These pipes on my pictures look so innocent but in fact it is so difficult to get them right that I am still surprised I succeeded in mounting them properly. Coming from the 8 cylinders they go down like snakes between the chassis and the gear box, then meet at the underside of the car before finishing in the silencer. If the curves are not exactly correct nothing will fit...
Next step will be the distributor box - let's see what that step will bring us 8o

they were slightly twisted, my dear missy minny mouse...just enough not to touch the pulleys that are directly behind - but I just twisted them 0,01 mm. more and I did it just for you.

The robot like object on the picture by which I wish you all a wonderful 2006 is the finished distributor box.
The diagram beneath it explains how it functions(the front of the car is to the left): The short shaft (top left) comes from the engine + gear box and powers the whole unit. Beneath it is the drive shaft for the front train/front wheels. To the right there is the small shaft to make the hoist function and beneath it two large shafts driving the two pairs of rear wheels.
In that way the distributor box distributes the forces from the engine resulting in a 'six wheel drive' - vehicle.
On the second image, with the model turned over, you see the distributor box mounted inside the chassis with the gear box directly in front of it.

Hi Bernie,
One word about mounting the distributor box: in my model the two '"shafts'' on the sides of the box by which it is ''hung'' inside the chassis (=parts 114) were about 2 mm too long. It was the first correction I had to make in this very precise model. (You may not encounter this problem). Fixing the box with the parts 114 glued in place is tricky. And when you did something wrong with the exhaust pipes you will now be punished 8o. My suggestion: start fixing the box at the front side (=the small fork), and finish by the parts 114.

Hello JC - distributor box is in the frame.
Had not problems with lenght of parts 114 but with outlet pipes - did not follow properly drawing and had to adjust it. Now in the middle of front axle.
And You?

The same as you: in the middle of constructing front driving axle, steering knuckles, suspension and shock absorbers; amazed about the way the designer invented such a sturdy construction for these delicate parts. Still working with lots of joy on this beautiful but complex model. New pictures will follow soon after some days of absence for holidays.

p.s.: be carefull when positioning part 120 at this step: position must correspond with position of its "counterpart'' on distributor box!

No, I did not give of up building my 'Kraz'. I was just abroad for some time; and then, because I prefer to show you the progression of my model in complete steps, I had to finish the hundreds of parts that form together the front driving axle, steering knuckles, steering rod, suspensions blades, brake cylinders and shock absorbers.
Steering knuckles and rod are movable and work smoothly.
I photographed the complete unit before mounting it to the chassis. The first picture is a top view, still without the shock absorbers:
