8 Rads - Gotta love ‘em #1

 So, one of the most popular builds I’ve done, in all scales, is by far the Sdkfz 234/2 ( commonly, but disputed, aka Puma), so with another queued up, I thought I’d have a play alongside for to get me back in the mood. 

So, here’s  a 234/4 as a work in progress. Build is proving more complex than originally thought, but it’s getting there! Won’t go into the extra details here,  Not sure how much more I will get done on this build over Christmas as I have a few paints to finish up, but this has worked as “pipe blocker” for me easing me into painting…

1/56 - 12.8cm K44 Heavy Anti-tank gun


Some serious anti-tank assets.... This a version of the German 12.8cm K44 L55. initial resin print from the extremely talented Richard Humble. The Pak is crewed by some converted Perry miniatures gun crew and an old school resin Bolt Action Sdkfz 7 with resin tilt by S and S models.
The inspiration for the vignette is late war eastern front, I have adopted a late war hard edge camo scheme and placed the position in the centre of a dirt road, you should be able to make out the pavements. The depiction of crew is deliberately ragged, with various items of uniform, camo and non-camo.
I deliberated on the size of base, I would have preferred slightly larger but as this is a gaming piece concessions have been made, all figures are removable.

I am trying to get all my IT/media back up and running, so will start uploading some of my recent work to my FLICKER account again, so more pictures here:

(For those that notice the details, scale 12.8cm ammo was not available at the time of build)

Tinkering with 234/3

Love the 8-Rad, have been working on a /2 and /3, pictures of the /3 here. Warlord kit with rubicon short 7.5cm, really like this little chap!

Will also be building/converting the /4 with pak 40 and  the /3 but with the schwebelafette turret, which should be the bees knees! Anyway, the “standard”/3 for now...

Tinkering with... Mobelwagen

 Struggling getting stuff out at the moment, lots of external pressures, very close are the following:

A) Churchill AVRE with SBG

B) LVT waterlined for Indochina

C) Kangaroos and crew

D) LVT4’s and crew 

This one has been sitting around for over a year, so having no painting mo-jo put some hours in to finish up. Both base kits are Rubicon, with the extra detail track set.
