Sdkfz 221 ... Finally

Actually, this has been done for a while. I just now got around to taking a photo. I had to look, I first made a post in March of last year showing this Black Tree Design Sdkfz 221 in all its multi-piece gory, I mean, glory.

To put it bluntly, this was a challenge. Lots (and lots) of glue, filler, sanding, priming, more filling, and finally it started to take shape. I wish I had some in progress pics, but there it is. In the end, it turned out not bad. I still think it's a bit large for 28mm or 1/56, checking in at 1/50 or so, but as long as it's not parked next to my Warlord resin pieces, it should be OK.

And, I have to say, this thing is HEAVY. That's a lot of thick metal there.

One of these days, I need to get an early war game going. I have plenty now for some small forays in Norway, or even some messing about in Belgium or France against the BEF.
