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

1:35 Tamiya Sd. Kfz. 251/1 Ausf. D

Recommended Posts


A.MIG-1608 PLW Deep Brown followed by 1:1 X-22Clear Gloss:XF-86 Flat Clear "satin" for oil experiments.  Kit decal carrier film step visible - might disappear under flat coat.



Bought a set of Hobby Boss individual track links but gave up after trying to assemble three.  Kit rubber bands primed in generic dark grey-brown; pads painted black; edges drybrushed with Citadel Boltgun Metal; washed with assorted Vallejo colours.

A bit more...



Tamiya's rubber band tracks.  A tad too much tension.



So much so that it distorts the "connecting link".



AFV Club's rubber band tracks.  Different style and two links longer.



Vallejo washes.



Superglued to wheels.  Might still be able to tighten the sit around the last wheel.

Wow, that's a seriously attractive model you're building, Ralph. I too love the inner details you added! Good call on those AFV tracks. Silly thing is that I bought the single link tracks from AFV, looking a bit down my nose at the rubber bands..... :wallbash:

Tried AK Interactive's "Ultra Matte Varnish" for the first time.  Pics really taken to look for shiny spots/ decal carrier film... 



3:1 mix of varnish to AK thinner.  Sprayed well.  No tip clogging.  Shows promise...













Beading wire for the coiled steel rope, and some leftover 48th scale Tamiya AFV kit string and ends for the tow cable.
