Randy,
That builds into a very nice little kit.



That's good to know Gary, thank you. I am looking forward to starting it. I wasn't sure what to build for an entry and then I thought of doing something basically "Last Ditch in Berlin" and so that is how I decided on that kit.

Thanks,
Randy

Thanks for your kind comments Gaz!.

More pics!

I am using another technic in this Phase: I am mixed painting with pre-weathering, why?, because I needed treat the tracks and background before of cover them with the side skirts. fine and medium marble powder + water + white gum (Resistol 800) and airbrushing with Vallejo-Model Air, Flat-brown #71026.





Regards!
Rodolfo

After a few days to contemplate how I'd proceed, I spent a few hours today adding the details needed for the hull. Here is where I am, now:

not to be too critical of your lovely looking half track,but the gunner's seat looks like it is on the wrong side of the gun mount,or is it just that I've had a bit too much medication.

Thank you Gazz, Stuart.
Stuart, the seats are two. What you see in the photos is for the loader. The gunner's seat is behind the cannon.
Soon I will show photos that give a good look at the machine.
Kind regards!

Hello!
Rodolfo, great work.
Gazz, I expect the Sturmtiger sequel. The beginning is promising.
My work progress. Sd.Kfz.251 / 17D is built and painted. The camouflage and the mark were made. Remains of the weathering.
Here are some photos.





Good luck to all ! And cheers!

Rodolfo! Awesome job! The figures came out well, too!

Kalin,
The 250/17 looks great! I've never seen one of these in a photo.

Changed my plans, I wan't to build something simpler:
