Arnhem 1944 - Sd.Kfz.250/5 Kampfgruppe Brinkmann

Posted by GumSmith on 25 Nov 2020, 15:00

Hi everxyone,
this is some round about 15 years old stuff. I built the base to show in another forum (modellbauforen.de) how i build forest for dioramas. I never planned to put the 250/5 on it, because it was planned for Arnhem-bridge diorama. But as i never realized that diorama and some day excellent 250-kits from MK72 were released this old Esci-based halftrack standing solo in my showcase.
And as the model was build with lots of sweat and tears, i didn`t want to waste it that way.
Only the hull was taken from Esci - kit, radio-set, front wheels and some other parts are from tracks n troops resine kit, tracks and wheels are from Al.by, and some scratch work was done. I built it after a photo from Arnhem road bridge when battle against 2nd Bataillon under Colonel Frost ended and SS-Pz.Aufkl.Abteilung 10 / battlegroup "Brinkmann" prepared to move over bridge to Elst.

Hi EvM,
i am old, but not debile...i can remember clearly.
GumSmith Figures - the company that doesn`t exists.
I made some masters out of Preiser figs and casted them in resine for private use. Long time ago. Once upon a time i built a lot of figs after Arnhem pics and casted them for me and some friends. Maybe at the weekend i can have a look if moulds still éxists or if there is any of that figs left. Don`t know.

A really TOP improvement to the original Esci kit.
I remember a discussion in a 1/35 forum about this the grey box on a b/w pic.

Pose of the figures are done with love as the details like the pipe.
Who don`t know GumSmith Figures. Well known for Experts, Professional, Insiders, born on the 29. of February, outlaws, Jedi knights and the Magnificent Seven.

The tree and the nature look - nature like. :-D

Beautiful work, I like this scene, the vehicle camouflage is just suitable for hiding in the shade, natural trees and soldiers

Ok,
i`ll take that topic. :mrgreen:

Some new pics after i added some details like crate and tools and a camo-net (which does not look really good, so i have to find a solution to this).
And after i made new photos i thought "Oh, some dust would be nice", so i took some pigments out - but i didn`t make new pics again.
