A Parade Of Finished 1/72 Scale Halftracks!

Recommended Posts

Greetings gentlemen!


For awhile now I've been working on seven German halftracks of the SdKfz 251 variety. I can finally declare them finished! Here they are for your perusal. I have them in two posts since there is a limit to how many pics fit on a post.



I'll start out with my Dragon 1/72 scale German SdKfz 251 Ausf C. This was the standard APC for the Germans; at least in their fully mechanized units:






Next is my Dragon 1/72 scale German SdKfz 251/2 Ausf C (riveted) with mortar:






Another Ausf C, this is the Dragon 1/72 scale German SdKfz 251/7 Ausf C Pioneer Panzerwagen:






Another Ausf C, this time it is the Dragon 1/72 scale German SdKfz 251/2 Ausf C with the rockets:






This last Ausf C is the ancient ESCI 1/72 scale German SdKfz 251/1 with the rockets:







More in the next Post.....

In this next post, these last two halftracks are Ausf D's. This first one is the Dragon 1/72 scale German SdKfz 251/7 Ausf D with the 2.8cm sPzB 41 Anti Tank gun:






This last one is the Dragon 1/72 scale German SdKfz 251/2 Ausf D with the rockets:






That is all of them completed. Here is the final pic of the whole 'family'!




Just for fun, here are a couple of comparison pics for you to see. This first one shows my first 1/72 scale ESCI SdKfz 251 halftrack with the rockets on the left and my latest one on the right. The one on the left was built when I was 10.




Quite the difference in finish there. My next pic shows a different comparison: the ancient ESCI kit and the new state-of-the-art Dragon model:




Man that really shows the differences that technology has brought!


Anyway, my German Army has now taken delivery of these. I do hope you like them. As always, thank you for looking and comments are welcome.

"I just love a parade. . ." Very very nice work. Great info on the newer improved kits. You've got quite a collection going. Thanks for sharing the images. :smiley32:




Thanks Mike! I'm glad you like them all. It was a pleasure to share these with you. I'm very happy to be done with them.

Thanks Keith! Yeah, I thought I'd throw that in there. I also like the comparison between the ESCI and the Dragon kit too. It's amazing sometimes, seeing the differences in what we used to accept as state-of-the-art and what is currently state-of-the-art, especially when building it.
