Waiting For The Bus

 Readers may recall that I had purchased the Roden Models Vomag with 8.8cm flak gun mount, here it is together with a couple of other additions to the 20mm WWII collection.

The Vomag is painted to represent one of the two that were in Budapest in 1945, I have recently learned that they had been refitted with gun shields. Perhaps this suggests they were used in a ground role? Either way this will most likely be used as set dressing or an aide memoir I have an off table 88 shot.

My other additions are a graveyard for Bikkelheim and a platoon HQ in greatcoats to go with my platoon in winter gear. The figures and the Vomag crew are from ABFigures, the grave stones and walls are from Anyscale Models, they also do the walls in 1/56th.

  4. That vehicle is fab, I spent a bit of time staring into it, even things like the dusty tyres just bring it to life.

  7. Splendid stuff Phil…
    I’m not that sure a shield would help much anyway…
    What they really need is a hiding place… it’s got target written all over it…😁

    All the best. Aly

  8. Very nice work Phil! Incidentally I‘m still considering if I‘ll get myself the Roden kit or if I 3D print the Vomag. Any thoughts on the Roden kit?

    1. Thank you Nick. The Roden kit is really good and nice and straight forward to build I didn't encounter any problems.
