So, we have the first part of the 1940ish PzDiv's Recce toys. First up is a m/c combo sporting a sizzling MG34; ideal for a snoop & scoot recce. Also pictured is an SdKfz 232 done up as an SdKfz 234 to confuse the enemy. Cunning, no? The remainder of the AufKlaBat is stuck in a convoy somewhere between here and Ebay. But the less said about that the better. Loose lips sink German ships as well.
The 234/232 is the trusty Italerai kit. A fairly simple and quick build apart from the 'look-at-me-&-I'll-snap' wheel mountings. Once again most of the extraneous matter has been left off the toy. Painted in Vallejo 'German Grey'; a wash with 'Dervlan Mud'; some mud splatter; based and flocked. The m/c combination is the Zvezda kit. Beautifully crafted but fiddly. The biker figure, despite my best efforts, does not have his hands on the handlebars. Still, it's a toy so it doesn't matter. YAY!!
