Wrecked!

I was looking through  a few old boxes the other day and found a bunch of Peter Pig's wrecked vehicles. Ninjasaurs Rex had bought them a long time ago and passed them over to me to paint, I promptly put them in a box and forgot all about them! I thought it was high time that I finish them and they didn't take very long to complete.

The first is this SDKFZ 251/C in a pretty bad way:



Next up is this Panzer IV F1:



And finally two Kubelwagens. These originally were joined together on one base, so I cut it in half to make two seperate wrecks.



Ninjasaurus admonished me for flocking the bases as they were supposed to be for Stalingrad, but the bases were already covered in foliage so it would have looked weird to paint them concrete grey, so Ya Boo Sucks to you.

Thanks for reading!

  1. Good stuff! I always think it is a real treat to find a box of stuff you'd forgotten about. Possibly even more satisfying than a planned buy! (But I'm probably weird - no comments required).

    Lovely job on them - there must have been a bit of grass near Stalingrad - musn't there?

    Anyway, your wrecks are nicer than a lot of my front line stuff. Great job.
