I present three dioramas (or are they vignettes) featuring Sd. Kfz. 9 FAMO Halftracks in 1/72 scale. The first is a Planet Models resin kit with Black Dog accessories. The figures are mainly from Preiser set 72505, augmented with others from one of their Luftwaffe sets. The crew has taken a break for lunch in the shade of a tree. The dog is painted to resemble one of my own.
This scene is the Revell FAMO towing an Italeri sFH 18 Field Howitzer, both very nice kits. The cargo is mainly Value Gear in the bed and Black Dog tarps on the fenders. Figures are a mix of Preiser and modified artillerymen from the Italeri kit. Value Gear here: http://valuegeardetails.com/UniversalStowage72.html
I have recently developed an affinity for tank transporters (like I needed another rabbit hole to climb in) so there will likely be more like this scene in the future. This is the Trumpeter FAMO and transport trailer with a Zvezda Panzer IV. Figures are from the CMK set designed for the FAMO and a few from Caesar, Value Gear stowage in the bed again. I like the casual poses, particularly the bored guy on the back of the trailer.
This is the Zvezda Panzer IV Ausf. H in 1/72 scale, kit number 5017 released in 2018. I replaced the hull Schürzen with sheet plastic and I added Zimmerit made with Mr. Surfacer 500. A nice kit and loads of camo schemes to choose from. Decals are from Kagero Top Colors 32 and depict a Panzer IV from the 116th Panzer Division in Normandy, August 1944. I found the mixed camo patterns of the hull Schürzen and the rest of the vehicle interesting.
