Sd.ah.116 trailer

Good day once again.

After some extensive work on this "shelf queen" I can call this piece done. The sd.ah.116 trailer is a Tamiya item that has a lot of detail , with a load of extras such as chains ,come alongs , ramps , chocks and other assorted goodies for hauling your piece to the front line or towing it back to the shop for maintenance. It has possible steering , working platform , articulating bogies, and a multitude of options for situating it in a diorama.



I chose to have this carrying the sturm panzer Sd.Kfz. 166 behind the Famo. Heavily  weathered, dusty, dirty ,  grease , rust and oxidation on the panzer grey paintwork and wood surfaces was carried out during  many hours of many painting sessions.


 Extensive use of acrylics , oils and pigments were utilized.
 






 Famo spade and ramps. All end markers were masked and painted.
 
 
Scratch build refinement such as the tarp frame { well the hell did Franz put the tarp ? }. All lights wired{ non working }



Front end dropped to show articulation .








 The two monsters together.
 



 Load out for the front. Attachment of Sd Kfz 166 and group of riders next in line for this build.
 

Hope you like it , and feel free to leave some feedback.
 
Cheers
