The Great LSM Twins Group Build ends July 3, 2024 ×

DRAGON Sd.Kfz.251/16 Ausf. C FLAMMPANZERWAGEN 1:35


Recommended Posts


Apologies I have been very remiss of posting the completed build of this unique halftrack. A really fun build and a typical Dragon offering. All the usual instruction frustrations and trying to fathom the correct build sequence. The challenge was also how to paint and weather an interior and exterior at the same time. Probably a little heavy on the weathering for some peoples tastes but these were workhorses. Also add the unburnt fuel coating every surface. Hopefully they picture will be of interest…..

The completion of your Halbkette, nearly skipped by me as time is a bit sparse at the moment, Phil. I really like what you did with painting and weathering and yes, these open topped vehicles can be a challenge to paint.

Cheers Rob

Thanks Rob. I did enjoy the build as this was my first half track, I have two others in the stash including the 18T Famo and trailer. The weathering this time actually included mud and grass from the Vallejo Environment range. What I like about these, they are also acrylic……

Really nice finish Phil. Weathering looks spot on to me, as you say these were worked hard so hardly going to pristine. 

Thanks Gus, much appreciated. I definitely use the mud and grass product again and it being acrylic it’s not a bother the clean up if you make a mistake……

Very nice!  Glad to see this one finished.

Thanks Gaz, it’s been finished for awhile but just didn’t get around to photographing it. Halftracks bring another level of complexity to to AFV builds, I did enjoy it………
