Paint and Glue Miniatures Krupp Protze Kfz. 69 (L2 H43)

The Paint & Glue Miniatures Krupp Protze Kfz. 69 (L2 H43) is a very neat print that has excellent detail, and which models the rear tyre with its frame very accurately, and has good detail around the ammunition boxes. Print lines on the sloping front bonnet, the usual curse of printed models, are not too noticeable, and the windscreen is separate, so can be modelled up or down. Wheels are printed individually, which you either like, or don’t. It can be seen that printing separately enables better tyre detail. As usual, my battle-ready-get-it-on-the-table paint job does the model no favours.

It compares very favourably with the Butler’s and QRF Kfz. 70s and the QRF ’69, which lacks the rear wheel detail. The Kfz. 69 was most often seen towing the 3.7cm Pak, with the Kfz. 81 variant towing the 2cm FlaK 30 and 38 gun

  1. That looks great.

    An iconic truck of WW2 really.

    Cheers,

  2. Thanks Pete, all due to the model, rather than my painting skills.

    Regards, Chris.

  3. A nice model of the Kfz. 69 version there, Chris! 🙂 Sadly, I can remember converting two Matchbox 1:76th Kfz. 70s to 69s about 40 years ago! And you’ll be glad to know you have influenced me enough for me to be currently awaiting my first Paint & Glue models – it turns out Garry at Paint & Glue Miniatures was born only a few streets away from where I live now!

      I have to own up to gaining more satisfaction from bodging a conversion than a perfectly rendered off-the shelf model. Martyn Simpson was the one who led me down that particular path (see Men in Hats).

      He was making very rough balsa wood models of SdKfz 251s and Kugel wagens, http://www.fahrzeuge-der-wehrmacht.de/Bilder/Mercedes-Benz_260_TS_10-1.jpg , the sort of thing that no-one was making kits of at the time in the late 60’s early ’70s, and went on to become a teacher.

      Regards, Chris.
