1/72 Scale SdKfz 234 Puma

I am currently knocking up a few bits and pieces to use in a small Nuts! skirmish game and so the chance of some freebie die-cast WW2 vehicles previously included as part of a tank magazine series, was not to be missed. 

Here is the first, a 1/72 scale SdKfz Puma decked out in Waffen SS colours. The vehicles lack any great detail and what there is, is pretty generic, however, they are perfect for my meagre wargaming needs.

Here it is following some washes, dry brushing and basing; to be honest, I didn't spend a massive amount of time doing this and admit there are areas that could still be 'tarted-up' a bit, but think it is a great improvement on its previous guise.

I am continuing to struggle with productivity as many will be aware from my previous posts, but I am 'chipping away' at a few things slowly, which I will stick up in the near future.

I have a few other vehicles to complete including a T-34/76 and Tiger 1 (what else?) along with some more PSC infantry, but first I have the small matter of a week away in Rhodes to occupy me...;)

That's it for now, all the best!



  1. Lovely work as always Monty. Good luck in Rhodes, don't over indulge mate.

    Regards Paul

  2. Nice job - I really like the colour scheme and your weathering effects

  3. Thanks chaps, very kind; I try and make my WW2 stuff look dirty and grimy as much as possible... Don't worry, Paul I will be well-behaved as I have the good lady to keep me in check...:D

  4. I've always been quite partial to the Puma. I think you've done a great job reworking it!

  5. Thanks for your kind comments ;)
    As I said, the best thing was, they were freebies...which was nice.

  6. mmm, Rhodes eh? been there once myself. Anyway, great work on the Pumas Monty, sweet rides.

  7. Excellent rework, looks well used. Don't upset the locals in Rhodes as I'll be there in October


  8. Thanks Will, nice one...
    Regarding Rhodes...aaahhh...;)

  9. Nice work Monty!
    The weathering is very good!!
