Tamiya 251/1 Halftrack, 1/35

February 26, 2022 · in Armor · · 9 · 1.3K

One of 's classic kits - the 251/1. Finished this one a few years back and finally posting the finished model. I had a few spare benches and stowage bins but needed to scratch build a few more to replace the kit supplied interior benches. For tracks, I used AFV Club single piece tracks, much nicer detail than the Tamiya originals. I also found a pair of MG34's with good detail hiding in the spare parts box and used those. This one was fun to see how a little extra work can really help bring this old dog kit to life!

  1. VERY nice job on this ancient mutt; a good coat of paint sure makes even the old stuff look excellent

  2. Great job indeed, Curt!

  3. Looks like it was operated in Belarus during the Russian spring rains. Great weathering.

  4. Great result, Curt @CRCsquad
    Especially the weathering looks amazing.

  5. Nicely done, and don't you just love the classic Tamiya box art?
