Hanomag Skdfz 251/1

August 18, 2015 in Uncategorized

Hanomag Skdfz 251/1 halftrack. I did this one because I loved the first one I built and wanted to do another color. This is the later Dunkelgelb (Dark Yellow). This vehicle was on the Russian Front 1943.

  1. You did a great job on this one John. It cries out for a diorama. Well done!!!

  2. The weathered finish on this first class, very convincing.

  3. Thanks George. I always learn from my mistakes. Modeling is like life, you learn more from mistakes than from success. At first I overdid the weathering. I was so excited with the effects that I was making that I got carried away. I was very glad that I used an acrylic floor varnish to seal the base coat. I used paint thinner to take this back down to the base coat, and started the weathering over again. I try to make my models look like the real thing. I often spend hours researching a specific plane or vehicle so I can do a more realistic job.

  4. Again….some nice modeling. Keep on posting, John.

  5. Looks very good. I’m not an armor modeler, but the finish is very convincing.

    • You know Greg, I was only into planes until I did my first Armor build. Now I do about 75% armor and 25% planes. It is a bit different with the finishing and weathering on Armor being more time consuming, but I do not miss masking canopies. LOL

  6. I’m really impressed by the finish and weathering. No more words, let me enjoy it.

  7. 🙂 … Greetings … 🙂 :
