Italeri Sd.Kfz. 234/2 Puma in 1/72 Scale

Another personal favourite of mine the Puma armoured car. This one is from Italeri and a great little kit. I have previously built the Hasagewa version of the Puma, which is also a very nice kit. The Italeri one is not quite as detailed and slightly bigger in all dimensions, but matches up pretty well. Unfortunately the hatches on the Italeri kit are moulded shut so you would need to do some surgery in order to open them up. I did not change much just added the usual aerial. I particularly liked how easy it was to align the eight wheels on this model, its a good design. Overall it was a fun kit to build, but I still prefer the Hasagewa version.

I did a dunkelb base and a dark green camo. Some chips with a sponge in dark brown and black. Oh and a dirty brown wash. Here is the finished model next to my other Puma for comparison.

  1. That is really nice, Will (both Pumas actually)! 🙂 You probably have memories of lining up the suspension on the Airfix “German Armoured Car”! I have one of the old Matchbox Pumas for my Germans, with another converted to the short 75 support version!
