Tamiya 1/35 Hanomac Sdkfz251/1 and 7.5Cm Antitank Gun


Recommended Posts

Thought I jump back in to armor and build a Hanomag Sdkfz251/1 towing a Tamiya 7.5Cm Antitank Gun (PAK40/L46) Will model a Afrika Korp scheme using Tamiya XF-60 Dark Yellow as a base with Tamiya XF-62 Olive Drab lines mounted on a sandy base!

While I'll always be a airplane guy I really love these Tamiya armor kits and enjoy building them.

Like this lit as it has an interior I can detail!

Painting the interior and drive wheels with Tamiya XF-60 Dark Yellow.

Painted the seats with Tamiya XF-52 Dark Earth to make them standout. Also drybrushed the interior with both XF-52 and XF-62.

Highlighted the dash by drybrushing with Tamiya XF-1 Flat Black.

In researching schemes I ran across several pictures that I believe were crew installed hanging rails welded to the upper body so decided to scratch build a pair for interest!

Left off with starting the drive section.

Since I'm modeling my Hanomag Sdkfz251/1 in a Afrika Korp scheme I decided to scratch build a sun shade frame over the open compartment.

I asked the following question on my "The Basement Air Force" Facebook group. "What would I use over this framework to simulate a canvas cover and how would I do that?" I received many kind replies opting to using tissue and water down glue to form a canvas canopy. So never one to shy away from a challenge or a new technique we'll see how it turns out once dried, painted, faded and weathered a bit, lol!!

 

Framework.

Tissue installed and painted with waterdown white glue.

Ralph,

 

You've become a model making machine and your work is really nice. I love logging in to see what you're up to. Keep up the good work.

 

Cheers,

Wayne

LOL thanks Wayne. Being retired allows me all the bench time I want between messing around the house, volunteering at our local hospital, traveling etc.With winter coming I'll have lots of free time so to catch up on my stash builds!!
