fantastic, a very beautiful (little) conversion of the standard kit. A very nice job is done with an old kit! I like the old kits in 1/32, i build several.

Just finished Trumpeter's 1/35 Russian 2S3 Akatsiya self propelled artillery. Nice kit, but did not come with pioneer tools (had to raid the spare parts box), periscopes (scratch built), unditching log (scratch built), or tow cables (scratch built).

Nice indeed. Did you enjoy building it ?

Sergey Nikitin
Looks great!
What color did you use?
Not very similar to 4BO or earlier protective color
28. April, 12:58
George Bacon
Oliver, I enjoyed the build very much, with one exception. The tracks were much more difficult than they needed to be. Lots of clean-up and each track requires two pins on either side. Took me 3 days just to do the tracks!
28. April, 13:11
Rui S
Very nice work. Great subtle weathering
I understand you. The tracks on my T26, mad me lose my mojo for a long time After cleaning all of them for One side only :(
28. April, 13:28
Neuling
Very careful paintwork and weathering!
28. April, 14:33
Jean-Michel Tilquin
I agree with all the above. Eye-catching little model!
28. April, 14:36
George Bacon
Thanks Mates! I'd look at buying other versions from Hobbyboss, if the tracks were "length and link". Otherwise, it will be a few years before I forget the trauma of doing their tracks....
28. April, 16:34
George Bacon
Sergey Nikitin, the color was a mix of Tamiya acrylic paints: olive green and yellow with a touch of flat blue...

Great model and great finish I like the scheme - I assume this is north Africa yellow/olive over German grey - newly arrived vehicle shipped from Europe? Can you share the spec/name of the top colour? Thanks George I have PzIII Ausf. J on the bench, would like to try this :)
22. April, 03:49
Thomas Kirschbaum
looks good!
22. April, 06:13
George Bacon
Thanks Tom! The "Afrika yellow" paint was mixed from Tamiya acrylics base colors (yellow, black, red and lots of white). I don't know the proportions; just added color until I got what I wanted. The panzer grey (Tamiya right from the bottle) was added on top using spongy foam and dry-brush techniques.
22. April, 13:37
Tom
Ah, got it, thanks George! Great technique and application, works perfectly.

Well made, no question about it. But I didn't know something like that existed in WWII?
It has tracks but they don't tough the ground?

Brian Eberle
This was a real and produced vehicle. Ingenious design concept to maximize performance for on and off road mobility. Completely avoids the timeless argument of which is better - wheels or tracks? How about both!

Historical records indicate that a total of 140 units were built with the new designation RK-7 (Räder-Kettenfahrgestell), although they were named as Sd.Kfz. 254 by the Wehrmacht.

The vehicle featured a wheel-cum-track layout and a diesel motor. The wheels were lowered when it was used on roads and retracted for tracked movement cross-country.

I wonder how reliable and effective the design proved to be. The low production numbers may tell.

Great build on an interesting vehicle.
1. March, 13:03
George Bacon
Thanks mates! And, thanks Brian for your excellent explanation of the real machine. A "Google" search for "Saurer 254" will find photos of the original beast, for all who are interested...
1. March, 15:17
Olivier
The maintenance was probably the main issue. I understand that a small number was converted into a recovery vehicle : kfzderwehrmacht.de/Homepage_..d_kfz__254_m__inst__kw_.html
