Re: Replacement parts wish list

Good question. That last batch was mainly based on requests from the community.

I still have a number of partially finished items that I committed to complete by months end so there will be a bit more released over the coming days.

Re: Replacement parts wish list

Very cool Normandy, did you have to extend the body to make it a "middle" Horch?


Also, here are the MG rollbar and wheel covers I mentioned:

Re: Replacement parts wish list

When the Troop Car first came out ten years ago I came to the conclusion that it most closely resembled a Stoewer R200 which was a light PKW Kfz.1 so that's what I converted mine into. https://i.imgur.com/442STCs.jpg https://i.imgur.com/qtERZs0.jpg Actual Stoewer R200: https://i.pinimg.com/originals...

Re: Replacement parts wish list

The IJ to Kfz kit is in the store now:

I added an optional MG42 and connector that attaches to the roll bar. It's not realistic, but seemed like a pretty fun idea to me. :twisted:

Re: Replacement parts wish list

Thank you guys for the positive comments and suggestions. Two of these door panels will convert an Indiana Jones troop car into a German PKW. I plan to include a front and rear Notek light set with the kit. https://i.imgur.com/cNJTSITl.jpg https://i.imgur.com/deAMgGel.jpg https://i.imgur.com/kyWxGop...

Re: Replacement parts wish list

FoV version of the MG42 mount. Note that the FOV mount is slightly tighter than the 21C mount so they are _not_ interchangeble. For those of you that already ordered some, I marked 21C or FOV on the underside of the mounting bracket. https://i.imgur.com/ImiLJasl.jpg Kar98k with a sling (Thanks to Ed...

Re: Repainting and Marking 1/18 Jeeps?

I agree with Pickel, and if you like the ones on ebay from Peddinghaus, you can contact them directly and Ernst has been willing to scale them to 1:18 for me. It does cost more as a one - off request. The decals I used on the KDF kubelwagen were 1:16 on a 1:18 Beetle and I think they turned out well.

Russian re-enactment videos

I would love to see one of these live, but the videos are very good with some almost movie like elements. Very different from the US events where you can see large crowds of civilians, roped areas, etc breaking the immersion. Operation "Iskra" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VAGjeDeBIpQ The Russian ...

Re: Replacement parts wish list

Ok, I made the Kubel parts and the MG42 + Mount for the 21C Tiger. Questions: If I make the Kubel windshield from clear resin, you'd have to paint the non-glass parts. If I made it from standard resin, you would have to attach a clear peice of plastic after painting to add the glass. Which option so...

Great find CK! VQ appears to have one in tri-color camo as well.

No worries CK! In a way we are all in this together. :-)

The model seems finished and it looks great. I wonder if some would still be interested given the additional details like the metal barrel?
