Zvezda Sd.Kfz. 251s

These little (not so little in real life I assume) APCs were used by the German army. Produced by Zvezda in their Art of Tactic range, scale is 1/100. The details are more than ideal with the MGs on top, exhaust pipes (or fire extinguishers? looks like that on the box art) near the front wheels and so on.

Assembly took no more than 15 minutes per model (including one broken front axis and pegs breaking on the track part which required some gluing); then a black undercoat, dark grey basecoat and the standard two sessions of drybrushing. I was more careful with weathering this time and it has obviously paid off.

Bases are cardboard as I've underestimated the number of my forces and had ordered too few MDF bases. Things like that happen to all of us. 


  1. Looking good! A wargames army can never have too many Hanomags...

  2. cool stuff! I like this. don't you just love these half-tracks.

  3. Beautiful weary battle veterans here for viewing. Nice work, Sir.

  4. Realy nice halftracks! Fire extinguisher near the front reels? And I always thought that's the exhaust.
