Kradschutzen

Brmm, brmm! Dakka, dakka!  Rommel's finest now have some hot new wheels to race around the desert.

Prepared and ready to paint, the riders with tabs were glued to some old slotta bases to make them easier to paint.

The motorbike and sidecar combos are Perry, whilst the other is a Warlord kit.  Have to honest here and say the Perry castings were less than stellar and were quite fiddly to build and position.

In the pic above the handle bars have yet to be eased into a better, more natural position.

Painting and basing was exactly the same as all my other DAK infantry and vehicles - have a look at the "Painting" tab above to find some links if you're interested in the paints, technique, etc.

Those look great Matt, well worth the toil in the end.

Very nice Matt, worth the effort.

Nice work Matt, I think the sidecar combo is iconic of the DAK.

Splendid, truly splendid!

Hard to make desert stuff look correct, with all the similarly colored tan bits. You've done a fantastic job of this.

Very well done Matt! I fully understand your difficulties with the Perry casts but you’ve still made them look the part.
