View Full Version : SdKfz 251 Icons v1.0a
February 28th, 2008, 02:33 PM
Here is the next installment of my icons. The SdKfz 251 series of icons. This series covers just about all of the production 251s. If I missed any they probably didn't go into production. lol. If any one has some 251s they want added to this set. Let me know, please supply your materials and I will see what I can do.
!!!To get the most recent update for this set go to the top of the second page of this thread!!!

I think my only request would be for the SdKfz 251/20 (http://ww2armor.jexiste.fr/Mythicpanzers/English-Files/Vehicles/08-Halftracks/Sd.Kfz.251/Sd.Kfz.251_04.htm#SdKfz251twenty) with IR searchlight as an FO vehicle. Otherwise, they look awesome.

Great work (as usual) oragus.
1)For the 251/21 I think you could make the protruding part of the 3 barrels the same length because the left and the right ones are equipped with longer cut-out flash hiders. Not sure this is the case for all versions tough.
2)I would lengthen the 75 Pak 40(L46?) a bit on the 251/22.
If you want to make other versions you still have the Czech OT-810s.
We wait for the 250s now http://forum.shrapnelgames.com/images/smilies/wink.gif

What scale are these? Are these done in your reduced scale or are they corrections using the games scale?

Thank you Thatguy. I have thought about the IR variant to go with my IR Panthers. http://forum.shrapnelgames.com/images/smilies/happy.gif
Thanks for the input Pierre. I based the barrels off the reference material I scrapped up. All the ones I found had the 2 longer barrels. Same goes for the 22. All the materials I have its pretty close to them. http://forum.shrapnelgames.com/images/smilies/happy.gif As far as the Czech variant. I will have to put that on my to do list for MBT. http://forum.shrapnelgames.com/images/smilies/happy.gif Thanks again for you comments. http://forum.shrapnelgames.com/images/smilies/happy.gif I have the 250s done too. But a question for you. I have done the "neu" late design 250/1, should I do the other variants on that build also or the original design variants enough?
Reduced scale Monty? I have my private scale but its actually a bigger scale the 1 pixel = 5.5". I have actually started to pull away from that scale. Getting tired of monitoring 2 scales. lol
All the stuff I release on here are the 1 pixel = 6" scale, except airplanes and helos. They have their own scales I use....:)

In my opinion, with the current database, It would be useful to have the 250/8 and the 250/9 in the "neu" version.
March 1st, 2008, 06:03 PM
Ok, I built them. Now just have to camo them up. I will release the 250 set next week.

,,In my opinion, with the current database, It would be useful to have the 250/8 and the 250/9 in the "neu" version."
Agreed. Thanks for clarifying the scale. Man the old ones were big.
March 3rd, 2008, 03:11 PM
Yep they were, wait till you see the size difference with the 250s. http://forum.shrapnelgames.com/images/smilies/happy.gif

I did the Sdkfz 251/20. Now any request for camo pattern or does it matter?
March 3rd, 2008, 10:39 PM
I haven't seen enough pictures to suggest any camo pattern. I would think that whatever you think the best matches to the relevant Panther Gs would be. The vehicles were designed to operate in concert, so I would think that would be appropriate.
March 4th, 2008, 12:15 AM
Kinda what I was thinking too, but thought I would ask since you requested them. http://forum.shrapnelgames.com/images/smilies/happy.gif

So does this mean that my 252s will need minmizing as well? What other vehicles aren't to scale? Will these 251s work with the Tigers and so on or are they now too big as well? Incidentally, will you ever do a Tiger/Tiger II icon set?
March 4th, 2008, 11:33 AM
Don't worry about the SdKfz 252s. Those are part of my SdKfz 250 set. http://forum.shrapnelgames.com/images/smilies/laugh.gif.
You would have to talk to Don about what other vehicles he opted to go big on. But if I had to guess, I would say, yes, they would probably work with current Tigers and what not. I know the Pz IIIs are a bit big, because those are mine and I did those before I knew of the 1 pixel = 6" scale. Those are actually how I got my personal scale. I liked them so much I didn't want to shrink them...LOL. Those are actually 1 pixel = 5.5". But, those are in the works to get redone in the proper scale too.
Oh yeah, I have already built both of the Tigers with variants in my scale. But again, to be released here I have to rescale them. I could give you a sneak peek if you like via pm? I won't put them on here, because I don't want people to break them done and use them in their game if they are too big.
March 4th, 2008, 04:12 PM
I would love to see those Tigers. I won't pass them on or use them myself. As you said they are too big.
I have just about finished working on the SdKfz's now that you posted them. As I am rather low on single icon space I took the liberty of making the Mgs for some of your variants detachable.
The new scale has also inspired me to shrink some infantrymen. If you like I will send you a copy of my shrunken troops by PM. I've done the grey ones to start off with. They are based on my own variant of some icons done a while ago for SPWAW.
March 4th, 2008, 08:05 PM
Here is the offical release of the set with the SdKfz 251/20, the IR search light variant, included.
March 4th, 2008, 08:20 PM
Ok, will do.
Good idea. Those positions do rotate, but they don't rotate all around. That is what has stopped me from doing that idea myself.
Sure, I take a peak at your infantry.
March 5th, 2008, 10:43 AM
251/20 looks just as awesome as the rest, but this was to be expected.
March 5th, 2008, 11:11 AM
Thank you Thatguy. Glad you like them.
I did the SdKfz 251/20 in the same Pz.Rgt.24 11-44 scheme as the Panther G Uhu. I guess I should do the Marder II next with the Uhu equipment then, so that unit would be complete? lol
March 5th, 2008, 12:16 PM
Heh, well the Panther G Uhu is already in the stock OOB, so I think there's enough space to add in the 251/20 and Marder II Uhu and then add some "Nachtjager" formations. If you have the unit information I'd be happy to do that quickly.
March 5th, 2008, 12:22 PM
I do some where, but would have to track it down. Might take me a while, I have lots of books.
March 7th, 2008, 05:10 AM
Very Nice,oragus, excellent Detailing
Man I have some work ahead of me.
March 7th, 2008, 10:39 AM
Thank you PanzerBob, glad you like them.
Wait till you see the SdKfz 250s. http://forum.shrapnelgames.com/images/smilies/happy.gif
