Non of the items here are posted with any form of political meaning, content or similar. Everything is displayed with an emphasis on historical correctness, unless stated otherwise. 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! Political correctness does not live here and I will not be held accountable for hurting any overly sensitive souls that can not handle history.
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.

"Rasputitsa" - Tamiya's Sd.Kfz 7/2 in the Russian spring mud

August 5, 2010
In order to break my modellinglow I started on an oldy: Tamiya's Sd.Kfz. 7/2 in order to try an idea I had for a long time; making a vehicle and crew, struggling through the Russian mud as spring sets in at the Eastern front.
I am using an old kit, just in case the whole thing goes wrong and ends up in the trashcan.
I wanted to "throw" the old kit together. Nothing fancy or complicated.... or so I thought.
Opening the ancient box (some of the sprues are from 1972!) I discovered I missed a few things; the Flakgun and one track. One of my friends sent me the gun and the missing trackissue was solved by cutting the one I had. I then glued this on top of the wheels and sunk the rest of the wheels in the mud.
But first I built the kit and added a small crew.
Here are some pictures;

The "tracks":

Just to do something different; a treegroup in the foreground:
