SdKfz 251 D

  • move
Another gem that ran around on the Militracks event both on the 2010 and 2011 edition. A really brilliantly restored version of the SdKfz 251 D. Restauration was done by the Crompton Military Vehicle Collection. Who really do their homework and get them back pretty much to factory fresh conditions. But more impressive. They ride them like they did 70 years back. On the last edition I had the joy to have a ride in the back of this vehicle through a 1,5 km ride through a forest and it was a brilliant experience. And I was allowed to photograph the vehicle inside and out. Of which I cannot thank the kind people of the Crompton Collection enough.

Started modelling when I was about 7 or 8 years old had a little break in between (school, girls partying) and eventually returned when finding this site in 2002. Main interest WW2 German army, wheeled vehicles and radio and communication troops or every other thing that manages to catch my interest...

Ola Darren Thanks a lot for putting the walkaround online. Again I hope it is of some use to members of the modelling community.

Thanks, thanks, and......uh.... oh yea, TANKS ALOT! Your photo's are very logical. Some walkarounds are like: 1) Ok here are the front, back, and left view. You don't need the right, because that would make sense. 2) Here is a detail shot really far away. Ok, now here is an uber close shot of a random castle nut. 3) Let me take crooked shots of everything because it is cool looking. Robert, your work contained none of the above and my brain appreciates that.

Ola Guys @ Tony Glad you like the pics Hope it is usefull for you @ Mark Glad you like the pics as well. I always try to photograph following the same pattern with my walkarounds. Starting off with a full shot of the vehicle. And then going from the front of the vehicle all the way around, right back left. And then whenever possible interior and enginebay. What you say with random castle nut you are right about that I can get annoyed when it is not directly visible where a certain detail needs to be. When I do something like that I always try to make an overall shot showing where they are in the vehicle. Glad to give your brain a rest

Great pics! This is a very late production D-model (1945), with the single engine cover hinged at the back and a seperate cover for the radiator. I too saw this vehicle up close a few times over the last few years. Greetz David
