From ClintB - 15mm Sdkfz 222 (6 points)


Just a single 15mm vehicle in this post. Over the Christmas period a friend had his shed broken into and some wargames stuff nicked. As they just took his ww2 collection I have no idea if they just wanted some "Toys" to play with or just grabbed what was on top.

So this is a gift for him to start to rebuild a viable ww2 15mm force. The model is a Zvezda plastic kit so not such a very large financial outlay but It will get him started and the kits are not bad at all for the price, definitely cheaper than buying resin or metal tanks. So very good value for money.



I am not sure which forces he will now collect as he has mentioned both Russian and British. So I thought a German (who fought against both nations) armoured car might be a safe solution.


Nice painting Clint and such a good thing to do, helping out a fellow gamer like this. That'll be another 6 points on your tally.

  1. Ooh, one of my favourite armoured cars. Well done Clint! (I particularly like the muck on the wheels and undercarriage.)

  4. That's some good karma right there. Not only a new model, but a painted one to start things off for him. Very nice.

    1. Thanks Millsy. Graham is a reluctant painter as his sight is slowly fading. So lets just say his models are not painted to the highest standards.

    1. Thanks Ian. From what he has said it does sound like kids, not that that is any excuse.

    1. Thanks Barks. It is most likely Kids. That is not an excuse of course but one would hope adults would have better things to do.

    2. You could model a 15mm teenager with boxes in his hands going under the wheels...
