View Full Version : German Utility Halftrack Icons v1.1
April 23rd, 2008, 02:24 PM
Ok fellas, by request, the utility vehicles are on the way. I know I said I would put them in one big release, but there are just too many for that. So, I will break them down a bit for you. This set covers one of my favorite utility vehicles Germany had; the SdKfz. 7. This set includes the SdKfz. 7-1s and 7-2s. If I missed any other variant, by all means let me know and present your resources and I will add it in.
***Scroll down for the latest update to this set!***
PS. The SdKfz. 6, 8, 9, 10, and 11 are coming soon.

Here is the German utility halftrack icons. I decided to go ahead and wrap them all up in one .zip file after all. This set has the SdKfz. 6, revised SdKfz. 7s, SdKfz. 8s, SdKfz. 9s, and the SdKfz. 11s. The SdKfz. 10s are still to come. That set is a bit bigger than the rest and I am still working on it. When I get done with them I will add them to this set. If I missed any feel free to let me know, and as always make sure you present your sources and I will work on getting them into the set if they are not too crazy...LOL.

Glad you like them. Yes they are, 18 ton halftrack is a monster. http://forum.shrapnelgames.com/images/smilies/happy.gif Wait till you see the little SdKfz. 10s next to the "Famo". lol

Ok, I have added the SdKfz. 10s to this set. It includes the SdKfz. 10/4 & 5, plus the ATG mounted variants. That should do it for the German utility halftracks. If I missed any please let me know and supply your sources.

Again, thanks for what you're doing for us. I'm sure it takes a lot of time not only to make them but in research too. BTW the SdKfz 2 is missing...lol...it's a german utility halftrack too http://forum.shrapnelgames.com/images/smilies/wink.gif

LOL, the Kettenkrad? You know how small that is? I don't even know if I can model that thing to scale, and have it actually look like what its supposed to look like? I left it alone because if I try to model that, I would have to model all the bicycle units, and motorcycle units too. LOL Oh and then I would have to redo all the infantry models too... LOL. Not likely. An infanty guy would only be 4 pixels wide. That is saying the average person is about 2' wide at the shoulders. I think I will pass on that one...lol. But who knows, maybe down the road.

I didnít talk about the Kettenkrad seriously but I have had the same thoughts about the infantry size and not only for the bicycles and motorcycles. The problem is similar with the artillery pieces. Good examples are the towed AA guns witch are double the size of the self-propelled variant.
Don't know who does these icons but the infantry accompanying the pack mules (icons 748,749,750 and 751) seems to be of the smaller size. A difficult problem to solve anyway.
