Sd.Kfz.232 by enc86 Sd.Kfz.232 by enc86
my pretty much finished German Sd.Kfz.232. i say pretty much because some pastels and random stuff might be added once i get it on the diorama base. overall this was a pretty fun and very detailed kit. this was allso my first time painting with Tamiya acrylics.

The Model: this is a 1/35 Tamiya Sd.Kfz.232 "afrika-Korps" kit. it was build straight from box and painted with Tamiya acrylics, witch was a first for me. this is allso the first model i have done that i tried to do historically accurate and like the box art. over all i am happy with he end result but i feel i could of done much better.

i am not sure about the diorama i am going to build to go along with this, but my idea is quite out there and i don't quite no if ill be able to pull it off. Monday ill start test and see what i come up with.

German armored car from the 40's. lol crazy looking huh. but it was a real thing.

ah, looks like it has a turret but that antenne looking thing makes me think the turret wouldnt move
Reply
:iconenc86:
enc86 Featured By Owner Jun 3, 2012
it has a turret, and they designed it so it would move while keeping the antenna straight. its hard to tell, but when i built it you could see how they designed it. its very delicate but the models turret would move as well.

ohhhh i think i see it now

enc86 Featured By Owner Jun 3, 2012
yea its kinda hard to enplane, but there are three "arms" that come off the turret. they connect to a part that allows the turret to move but keeps the antenna in place.
lol anyways the German engineers were crazy. i am working on a Sd.kfz 222 right now, witch is kinda like a smaller 4 wheeled version of This thing.

yah i noticed the three 'arms'
Reply
:iconenc86:
enc86 Featured By Owner Jun 3, 2012
yup, very weird.
lol the antenna and "arms" were by far the trickiest part of the build. it seemed like if i breathed wrong, it would make it all uneven. spent a ton of time getting that thing right.

Yes, I was in awe when I saw this on the history channel, it's huge! He probably felt the same way at Krojanty.
