1/18th Scale Kublewagon Cover

Post by pickelhaube » Mon Feb 04, 2019 4:21 pm

I know that the Hun had made one years ago but here is my rendition.

I think it to be a little more accurate .

I hope that there are enough kubles out there for these to go onto.

I am thinking $25-$30 painted panzer gray or field grey ( dark green )

Let me know if there is interest.

I´ll take one like we arranged with our deal and I would be interested in one for the minichamps Version. If this is possible.

Will ask some more german collectors if there is more interested if you want me to do so.

Thanks Guys !

The molds have been made and they are coming out great !

They will be painted ready to mount on your Kubel.

They look good as is , but if you want to make them pop just a little dry brushing is all that is needed.

Taking orders now and they fit perfectly in a small Priority box .

$25 plus $7.75 for Priority shipping.

Here are the first2 production tops.

This weekend I installed Pickelhaube’s Kubelwagen cover on one of my XD Kubelwagens. Mine is the field gray color, which contrasts with the Panzer gray color of the vehicle. Installation was very simple: you unscrew the Kubelwagen’s chassis and then push out the folded cover and install Picklehaube’s cover. I used a couple of the original “midget” Kubelwagen driver figures, but had to dremel out some of the inside of the cover so the figures would fit. That said, I really like how it looks! Thanks Picklehaube for making it :D

Tman, that looks awesome! Thanks for sharing!

I didn't need to unscrew the chassis on mine, the job was done just by pulling the folder cover up with my hand.

Thanks! I did try pulling the folded cover up first, but mine was in tight, so I unscrewed the vehicle and tapped it out with a screwdriver. What I really like about Picklehaube’s piece is that the Kubelwagen model doesn’t need any significant modifications to install the it... If I want to, I can simply remove the cover and push the stock folded cover part back in place 8)

That's right my friend, put Pickel's Kubel cover on and off it's a very easy task.
