Sd.Kfz. 251/9

by Andrew Judson


Description

Here is AFV Club's 1/35 scale Sd.Kfz. 251/9 half-track equipped with the short-barrel 75mm gun.

I have wanted to build this kit for some time now, but with all the stuff l have, have never gotten around to it, until l was recently commissioned to build one.

The kit was built out of the box apart from the tracks, which are the AFV Club separate link set. They are an improvement over the rubber ones, but are tricky to put together as they are delicate.

Every thing went together well, but l did experience some minor problems when joining the top to the bottom, and aligning the stowage shelves on the side.

 

 

Once completely assembled, the painting began. I used acrylics through an Aztek A470 air brush and oils mixed with thinners for pin washes.

Colors used were Desert Sand as the base, and Red Brown and Olive Green in a late war camouflage scheme.

Once basic painting was complete l then applied the decals, Pin wash and finally a light dusting with Mig Pigments.

The vehicle you see is depicting one used by the 20th Pz-Div on the Eastern Front in the summer of 1944.

I really enjoyed building this kit and hope you enjoy looking at it.
