Nice job on the SdKfz 234. You just added a scope to the turret, if I'm not mistaken.
Love the camo scheme and the extra foliage to break up the profile.
Nice, nice work. Like the camo scheme...doesn't get in the way of the added foliage, etc. Great detailing.
Whosoever conquers others has force.
Whosoever conquers himself is strong.
the MG is also from DT. My point being that it only takes a little bit to make out standard vehicles fit in with the DT setting. what would be great is if there were some way of getting 'bits'.

I totally agree, and have come close to buying a second box set just to use for parts.
Can i ask what brand foliage that is and where you got it from? I also use a lot of regular vehicles in my armies and add in little DT bits to make them fit. I like the paint scheme. Once i get time ill post some of my conversions as well.
The foliage is 'The Army Painter' brand and it's 'Ivy'. I just clip off small sections and soak em in watered down wood glue for a couple minutes then place em. It dries shiney so after I seal the model with Testor's Dullcote I go back and dry brush a lighter green oveer it. Hope that helps, and I look forward to seeing your conversion work. Have been thinking of doing some E series or other conversion too, too much other stuff on deck right now.
Thanks for the reply. Ill check it out. I really like the effect you gave to that puma. I have done now one standard and one converted to the 75mmpak40. im awaiting my 20mm turret like you have from quarter kit over in france. should have it soon.
This is what im looking to add some foliage to:
not sure if this better image.
Looking great, good useage of the MG gunner on your 251. How did you do the PAK75 conversion on the 234 body? Is it a kit or did you shoehorn it in and scratch build the rest? Looks good. I plan on doing a couple more 234s now that Tamiya has em in 1/48.
I get all my conversion kits from Quarter Kit over in France. Great guys and they have a lot of cool stuff. Its euros though so it can get a little pricey. Its under gasoline kit range or conversions in the category section. If you order mention my name I have been trying to get them extra business as they have some really great items. they sell dust to but again its in euros.
Forgot to say thanks for the compliments. I dont have much time to paint to great detail so i try to at least get to game play grade paint jobs. Ill try and budget mote time to get the little extras added on soon like more battle damage, etc. I think the ivy though is a nice quick solution you are using and very effective for what it is. Thanks for sharing.
