Here is my complete 1/35 Dragon Sd.kfz 234/1

6 PZ.Division, Austria 1945

Besides some infantry gear from the sparebox, its straight out of the box

Paints:
Dunkelgelb, Olivengrün and Chokoladenbraun are from WEM

Wheel wash is Valejo and life colour mix

I used Mud brown, Ligtht dirt and Dark dirt from Flory models

I also used MIG's "oil & grease"

Varnish is Modelmaster

Decals from the kit, helped with DACO's decal solution

This is without a doubt the best armour kit I have ever build, the fit is above the scale, I used a little Mr Surface 500 two small places, thats it.
Ok I admit that the instructions are at time challenging, but use your common sense and you will be all right.
Dragon has exelled this time, the fit is so good that sometimes I ruinded the fit when painting the items,
I look forward to starting my SD.kfz 234/2.

Not much is know about this family of vehicles, only a few book are written, and since only the Sd.kfz 234/3 and Sd.kfz 234/4 have survived
the war, detail on this subtype are even more scarce

There for I have made a couple of "leadership" decisions, I have plaved several 20 MM magazines in the turret, ready for use, I have places extra
kit inside the vehicle, Being an ex recce soldier myself, we offen left extra gear on the vehicle when dismounted
