Sd.Kfz 3 “Maultier” (1/72)

If you want to win a battle, it is very important to have enough ammunition. Of course in a real combat, you also have to provide fuel, spare parts and many other things for your troops. In Battlegroup game, we only need to supply our tanks and combat vehicles with ammuniotion. 

This model kit was produced by ukrainian company Roden. Unfortunetly, it has some serious issues with parts matching  and in general it was quite difficult to achive acceptable end effect. But I didn`t gave up, and here it is Рthe german mule.

Track links in thins kit are poor and it is very difficult to glue them in one piece. I decided to tie them with a very thin wire. As track chassis isn`t straight and there is wire in tracks, I thought that I will make an exception and put this model on a muddy base (usually I don`t use bases in my models), and make it look like it is hardly driving through rough terrain.

Miniature is painted with Tamiya acrylics. Weathering was made with Pactra, AK Effects, Wilder textured earth and of course oil paints (washes).
