Some early WW2 German vehicles

Post by Fire-at-Will » 29 Oct 2018, 14:48

A nice collection of vehicles from First to Fight to add to my Early War Germans. At the rear variants on the sdkfz 251 Ausf A L to R 251/6; 251/4; 251/1 Front row a pair of kfz70 Krupp Boxer trucks then an sdkfz 247, sdkfz 221 and sdkfz 223.

Generally nice kits, but the assembly instructions are not clear and it is worth checking with pictures of the vehicles to make sure where all the pieces fit.

just need to add some crewmen/passengers and find the steering wheel that disappeared somewhere in the carpet!
What's the point of doing one period, when you can do them all.......... In life most people specialise so gradually they know more and more about less and less so eventually they know everything about nothing. I work on a broad front so eventually I'll know nothing about everything.

Na Bad, I reckon the steering wheel is lost and gone forever.
Anything bigger than 6 is TOOOO big.

Very nice models. The Hinchliffe 251 A was the first 251 I owned. That was a nice model too and being metal was heavy.

Cheers Fred.

Wow, that 247 is a super-rare beastie. Production run of 10! Just goes to show they'll make a kit of absolutely anything that served in the Wehrmacht.

Or even anything that didn’t like all the kits of the paper Panzers you can buy, including such ludicrous designs as the Ratte!

Cheers Fred.

Vehicle colours are Humbrol 106 ocean grey (it's lighter than it is supposed to be but looks right to me given the scale effect) they dry-brushed dust. Seating is Coat d'Armes leather

First To Fight, (FTF), have made the Polish version of the Krupp Boxer truck. The Poles only had about six for trials and evaluation purposes, so I suppose it works both ways when it comes to modelling vehicles that didn't see 'real' service.
