Swastikas and SS-runes are a part of military history, as are David's stars, rising suns, stars & stripes, hamer & scyths etc. If you have a problem with that, please feel free to leave!

If you are interested in building scalemodels, study actual military history and the like however, you're most welcome to stay, browse, read and/or comment.

The contents of this blog are mine; the models I built, the ideas I used etc. If you want to use these, I'd appreciate it if you asked permission first and use the contents as they are intended; the making and depicting of scalemodels.
The reference pictures I use were dug up on the internet and I use and share them only as such; a reference. Whenever possible I will state the source, but unfortunately I have no idea where I found many of them anymore. The vast majority of the military images have been "living" on my harddrive for years.

40K spacemarine halftrack

august 16, 2009
you read it correctly, I am building a 40K Space Marine halftrack.
I got a bit tired of 1/35 armor and a friend of mine, for whom I built the 4-wheel, M113-based, urban combat vehicle, wanted to have a vehicle, looking like a German halftrack. He had some specific parts he wanted to use, like the metal hood, the twin guns, the visionslits and the figures, but other then that I could go bananas on it.
So, I got busy..... and a bit carried away....
I used plastic card for the main body, tons of putty, loads of German 1/35 parts and a lot of other 40K bits and pieces.
This is how far I got so far.

Some more in progress shots;
The front with added mudguards;

The turret with gunner;

the bottom;

Overall shots;

I need to do a lot more, like adding a seat, footpedels/controls and ammobins for the gunner, sand down more filler and add some more bits and pieces.... and off course: Paint!!

It has been quite a while, but I made some progress again!
While I had the airbrush out to do some work on another build, I basically sprayed this one in between. It didn't quite go as planned, because I had a lot of overspray, so I had to correct that by hand. I deliberately made the edges of the green look rough.
In the meantime I have added more details, both on the exterior and the interior. I'll show those when painted.

While I was spraypainting my Sd.Kfz.251/22 I did this one too, while the other was drying.
The basics were simple; a green over sandyellow base. In the meantime a handfull of other details have been added to the vehicle too.
Painting is proving to get more and more difficult, with lots of overspray and clogging and such. I think my airbrush is starting to fall apart.

Then I did the other detailpainting by hand and I added decals. The next step were pinwashes and a first medium brown wash.

The whole thing needed a base, too.
The idea was to achieve an apocalyptic look; dark, debris- and remainsfilled, with both the halftrack and the previously built wheeld vehicle.
