Plastic Soldier Company 1/72 German SdKfz251 D - WIP

I am working on more 1/72 scale stuff with a World War icon that everybody surely loves.. the German halftrack.

This model from PSC is great all-round, relatively cheap as you get 3 vehicles plus crew and some weapon options like adding the Pak 36.

For this batch of models I will start off with a grey primer.

Followed by a base coat of Middlestone.

Then a wash of 60/40 Brown/Black wash.

Nest a drybrush with Middlestone to clean up. Also started on the crew.

I painted my camouflage in the same tried and tested method as all my other german models. The green was a 50/50 mix of Reflective Green and Middlestone as a base then a 70/30 mix of Reflective Green and Middlestone for the center of the camouflage. I then drybrushed the armour again to bring out the detail.

I wanted to paint the camouflage all green to add some difference to my other German Tanks, similar to these pictures below.

Then finished off the tracks and other bits

More work on the crew.

Stay tuned for the finished models.



  1. These look great. I think we both got bitten by the 1/72 bug at the same time. If you are ever in DC and would like to put those to use in one of our club games let me know.

    1. Thanks John, if DC is in the USA then I think it could be a problem as I am across the pond in London.
