SDKFZ 250/3 IGEL 21st Panzer Division

SDKFZ 250/3 IGEL 21st Panzer Division

A work in progress for my Africa Korps troops



























Driver/passenger seats, dash, steering column, radios plus many other parts from Panzerwerks.

Small antenna mount, tool brackets, track from Fields of Armor.

Rifles, machinegun, mp-40 and tripod from Dragon.

Rifle bolts covers from Soldier Story.

No radio rack yet, she is just a work in progress.

Looking very nice. It's easy to see this is going to be a real beauty when it's done. The details are all very sharp and well thought out.

Re: SDKFZ 250/3 IGEL 21st Panzer Division

Hammer, any way I can persuade you to take some detailed pic's of those Soldier Story K98 Bolt Covers with measurements? Have yet to find any, was thinking I might try fabricating myself if not to difficult?

Re: SDKFZ 250/3 IGEL 21st Panzer Division

I can do that, probably this upcoming three day weekend.

Should also have some more work in progress pics of the half-track.

Re: SDKFZ 250/3 IGEL 21st Panzer Division

Hammer,
I'm starting on mine again, but I'm having problems with the fenders. Mine sag a little. How did you support yours to keep them from sagging?

Re: SDKFZ 250/3 IGEL 21st Panzer Division

I got two figures in there by shorting their legs quite a bit.
They are permanently mounted in there. Once I am done it would be impossible to get them in there or fix them if they moved or shifted at a later date.

They are now both a permanent driver and a radio operator. The hats are from the 21st century DAK figure.

Finished mounting the frame antenna, some other details and put in the passenger seat cushion. Hopefully get more done this long weekend coming up.
