Yet more Germans for my collection! (updated 2/9/21)

Post by Fire at Will » July 30th, 2021, 1:31 pm

A selection of my recently finished Plastic Soldier Company vehicles
Image

A variety of 1/72 sdkfz 250 Neu, these will be replacing some old 1/76 versions that will now either be sold or reused for an earlier period
Image

RIP Mike Yates, a member of Deeside Defenders, I bought these part-built sdkfz 251s from his collection sold off a couple of weeks ago. They will be a tangible memory of Mike.
Image

Finally, some Steyr 1500A heavy cars with an extra Mercedes version added in
Image

For the Mercedes conversion I used the left over parts from the PSC kit, with a donated PSC Mercedes truck front end bodged to fit and extra wheels cast with Greenstuff in Oyumaru molds from the originals. It was a lot more effort that I think it was worth.

This time the early war versions of the PSC heavy cars.

Left and right at the front are my conversion into a Mercedes version and the S&S radio car version.
Image

As I mention in an earlier post the Mercedes conversion is not worth the effort involved. Too much cutting and filing to fit.
Image

My last bits for July. A sdkfz 253 for Seelow 1945; The last PSC truck parts assembled into something recognisable; a pair of sdkfz 250/1 repainted for early war; and a Gaz truck of uncertain origin repurposed as a Civilian Ford AAA truck.

A very nice selection of vehicles Will, though a nightmare for the supply commander to provide all the spare parts for each type of vehicle to keep the forces rolling.

Thanks Alan, it was a pain to do, but turned out OK.
