Nice find and even better conversion! Didnt know the germans got that creative in the desert. Sort of an uparmed 251/10.

Thank you. Both sides in the desert way became creative, but more so the Axis.

Nice work - I'd never seen that one, wonder how well it worked.  8) 8) 8)

Thank you very much. I'm sure it would have worked - look how quickly they rearmed the M3 halftracks with a variety of heavy weapons they captured from the US after Kasserine Pass.

I've been slowly painting up some new models for my Mediterranean collection. These two models are from Shapeway.

Rommel's funnies are the unusual vehicles that fought in the Western Desert. The Pz SFL.II -7.5 cm Kanone L/41 auf Zugkraftwagen 5t (HKP 902) is one of these vehicles. Two arrived in the desert and did their duty.

The other model is the Fiat 3000 Mod 21. Fought in a number of campaigns, but this one is for Sicily as part of Group Mobile H.













Bespoke Perry Miniatures DAK crew were used with some re-modification to make them fit into the fighting compartment.

My thanks to Lorenzo Bovi from Sicily for assisting in the registration number and positioning for the Fiat 3000.

As always, thanks ever so much for looking.

Really nice work. That half-track is a weird beast, it's pedigree must be interesting. Nice paint jobs - I love the green on the Fiat.

as always nice job Helen ...

Dans les situations critiques, quand on parle avec un calibre bien en pogne, personne ne conteste plus. Y'a des statistiques l-dessus.
