Honved...1/48 Krupp Protze with 3,7cm Pak, Hungarian Army

April 26, 2021 · in Armor · · 8 · 1.7K


Next one finished. One of my dad´s excursions to the armour world.
To avoid the usual single grey look, I searched for something different. Came across the 1/35 Bronco kit wich included a 3-tone prewar and a 3-tone scheme. Proposed that to my dad and he chose the Hungarian one. Brought the paint instructions to 1/48 size, printed them and cut out the Hungarian licence plates and the unit insignia on the vehicle rear and glued them onto the model.
Painted with XF-58 Olive Green, XF-78 Wooden Deck Tan and XF-64 Red Brown.

  1. Very nice job, given the scale, at first sight I thought it was 1/72 scale!

  2. I also thought this was a scale smaller. Well done.

  3. Amazing job, Reinhard!

  4. Very nice. Now I have to make my Matchbox 1/76 model !
    Im inspired by the level of detailing of your “Protze”

  5. Where did you find such a large bottom of extra thin? 😀 Incredible detail!

  6. Very nice Reinhard, amazing paint detailing.

  7. Thank you for sharing this interesting variation for the Protze! I will most certainly bookmark it for future use.

  8. That’s really interesting. Your dad did a great job on this. All of the 1/48 armor you guys are posting is tempting me.
