Flaktracks: Finale!

Except for a couple of figures I will be adding at a future date (just got some new Caesar figs in just the uniforms I need!) these builds are done. Recall that the vehicles are the Sd. Kfz. 251/10 from Dragon, the 2 cm Schwebelafette is from Modelltrans and the MG 15/20 Drilling is from CMK. Paints used were from Lifecolors and Model Master. The tarps and sheets were shoebox tissue paper coated with white glue and the wire was from a standard electrical cable. Hope you enjoy!

I'll be taking a beak from model making for a few days and then it's on to the group Recon build - see you there!

Remarkable!

Excellent work Kevin, these look really good. Nice to see the Sd.Kfz.251/17 and Sd.Kfz.251/21 like this giving us a nice comparison.
So, will you be doing the 251 aircraft mount version after the group Recon build? happy.gif

Cheers
Stefan

Very nice work...

Hello Kevin,

Two very nicely finished models, well done, excellent work. I like the white sheets hanging from the Drilling conversion, very unusual and really well done, especially the ragged, muddy bottoms. Both models have very good winter whitewash finishes, both different and interesting. Lots to look at and study, plenty of inspiration, I have dug out all my 251's and started them, don't know what I am doing with them yet, but this gives me ideas.

All the best,

Paul

One reason I did this project was to experiment with whitewashing effects - my first attempt and it turned out really well, in my humble opinion! Would love to see you do a Sd. Kfz. 251 variant or two...

Very nicely done Kevin. I particularly like the drilling, especially the top shot. Just the right combination of color and whitwash

Regards,
Mark

As I mentioned to Paul, this was done partly to experiment with whitewashing techniques and patterns. As always, I let actual wartime photos be my guide! Looking forward to your Flaktracks finish... wink.gif

I wanted to capture that vaguely menacing look and I think I have succeeded to an extent. Thanks for your comments.
