Tamiya Sd.Kfz.251/1 Ausf.D WIP

Is it bad there’s only one complete word in that title?? Here’s my German halftrack WIP/weekend (well, last weekend) build.

You did all that in one weekend? Did you sleep?

It’s AMMO by Mig’s Rottbraun with a few drops of Dunkelgelb

That’s one I will get!
Thanks
Fine job

Looks very interesting, the camouflage looks interesting as well.
The decals look good to.
Did you plan to do some weathering on the model as well?
Also, what scale is the model?
And what was your overall experience with this kit?
I’m wanting to build German WW II half-tracks to.
Have ordered the Sd. Kfz. 9 FAMO from Tamiya, but want to build more of these type of vehicle.
Keep up your nice builds.

It is typical Tamiya quality…no fit issues. Tracks are “rubber band” type so the detail is lacking, but overall a good kit. I did some more weathering yesterday (light chipping/scratches, AMMO and AK pigments) but don’t have any pics yet.

Is this a straight OOB build Tom ? If so it gets my vote on that count as well. Sometimes I think you can get carried away on buying aftermarket bits and going crazy when in actual fact, the base kit is very presentable in its own right. I recently got the Dragon kit but the Ausf.C and thats going to be OOB.
Well done on another great build.

Yeah John, straight out of the box. Well, 99.9%…the MP 40s on the side walls are from Tamiya’s German Weapons kit.

Been a bit. Knocked out some figures (all Tamiya) to go with a mythical diorama I’m thinking about.

Everything looks really good! I really like your figures. What sort of paints did you use on them?

I primed them with Mr Paint Flat Black then used Vallejo Model Color for almost all, especially the camouflage. Applied Citadel Agrax Eathahade for a wash and used Tamiya’s weathering set A for the overall dust/dirt look

:+1: your figures and their camo smocks are great

Agree with al the above points about the camo and painting … a very nice detail is the 5 o’clock shadow on some of the faces, nice touch :+1:
