Kettenwagen- project S/F 1/35
« on: 23 Oct , 2010, 05:40 »
I will post here continuation of the work on the Kettenwagen tractor.
It is the S/F project. My vision on the Vehrmacht tractor vehicle based on the Kubelwagen car.
Latest addition is the tool box- scratch built to fit on top of the fender.

Flak 38 from Dragon.
I reworked the welds around the base of the gun, as DML located the injection pins there- right in the middle of the weld.
The seat was scratch built, as the kit one is to narrow, and has a funny shape.

the PE details really lift it, but the base model is pretty impressive, too

Not much PE used here- most of it is scratch built Wink. ;)







Now i will use some PE- im working on the shields. More pics soon.

Definitely LIKE! :o

Did you scratch build the barrel, kit supplied or aftermarket? 

Looking forward to watching your paint applications!

Cheers!

2 out of 3 shields are almost ready. The rivets were sanded down and i will replace them with the Archer ones.
The spent shell basket soldered from wire, and will be wraped with the nylon mesh.

Wow! Also, I should have said, the extra detail rather than PE - of course it's scratch!

Thanks guys! ;D

The Flak gun is now done, all the rivets were replaced by the Archer alternatives.





...and just for fun:

The whole gun is made of subasemblies for easier painting.
