Souvenirs

  • move
This is a build of a New Connection conversion kit for AFV Club’s 1/35 Sd,Kfz 11. Only the chassis of the donor kit is used the rest is a multi-media conversion for an unbuilt proto-type with a mounted 10.5cm artillery piece. Scenario is that British Soldiers find a long abandoned proto-type vehicle in an industrial area somewhere in Germany 1945, and pick up a water filled Steel helmet as a souvenir. Base is scratch built, figures by Wolf.
A bit of a departure for me as I rarely build Axis stuff these days.

The water looks , well...like water falling out of a helmet. So many great little details to look at in this one. Matt

Excellent build! Great to see a not so well known halftrack starring in a dio like this one! Too bad you used the tarp like this though, as I think it obscures the view of the halftrack. The rest of this dio is of a very high level.

Paul, Very nicely done! I probably missed it, but who makes the figures? Darryl

Hi Paul, Really great work on the figures, base and vehicle. I like the setting and story line, the figure placement is really good and the experimental vehicle very well done. Only observation would be the tarp. I like the shape and layout over the gun and vehicle, but the base of it looks a bit thick and the texture a bit smooth. it also looks quite clean given the state of the vehicle. The stone wall has a really good colour to it, just need a wee smart frame to finish it off. Great stuff. Al

Hi Guys Thanks again to all those who commented. Al you're right about the tarp. It was my first try with Magic sculpt i liked the way it's own weight made it drape more realisticly than I've managed with tissue or foil, but i think i got it too thick when folded. A bit more practice needed. Cheers paul

Good work, especially armored car! However I would paint figures more carefully and contrastly. Yours faithfully, Dmitry.
