Nice build, Roman. Always nice to see AFVs in unusual markings.

Thanks for sharing

thanks, Jesper.


The kit is from AFV club with Lion Roar PE for fenders and stowage boxes.
I scratch build parts of the gun stand to make it closer to references. The painting and weathering was done according to war time photograph of captured Pakwagen (seen at Panzerwrecks book)



p.s. I bronze medal on Norwegian IPMS this year with it in "1/35 armored fighting vehicles" category.

Roman,

Nice build. I especially like the rust around the main gun.

Hi Roman. Very nice rendition of your reference. The worn away white wash on the gun shield looks excellent. Personally, Id take it a step further and add some colour (stowage and/or figures) to bring more life to the vehicle.

Roman,

Thanks, Kevin.


Frank, the idea was to make a vehicle as close as possible to the book image. As you can see the stowage boxes are empty and the other 25122 with open doors is also empty. There is no place in life for war machine after the war is over

Nice job Roman, I particularly like the weathering on the interior. Give it a feeling of having been heavily used before being taken out of combat service. This would look real good on a small base depicting the ground shown in the photo and a nameplate along the lines of "War Booty" or something like that.

Thanks, Jeremy, I will think about making a base (never done that before).
The interior is painted like that since it was not a factory made vehicle but a field conversion, so red primer shows the areas under the parts that were removed or were never painted (gun stand)
