Finished!: 15mm Battlefront Kubelwagons

Hi folks,

Attempting to get back into the swing of things and actually pick up a paintbrush again after a bit of a hiatus, I started small and decided to tackle the Kubelwagons as a small unit which wouldn't take too much effort.

Big shout out to Matt Varnish for getting me onto a paint and chat, which helped me get the ball rolling again.

These three vehicles are from Battlefront and will provide transport for observation/artillery spotter teams, command teams or set dressing.


All three have got SS markings in the form of SS registration plates. There's no decent flat surface on them for any other markings, so I've just mixed up the crew a bit.

As per my other SS models, the crew have a mix of camo patterns and a couple of the figures had some green stuff conversions to give their helmets SS style covers.


A nice little trio of vehicles, that got me motivated to start working on the StuGs. Those have now been blocked in and washed, with the next step being highlights.


Hopefully the StuG's will be finished off soon!

  1. Very nice collection. Re:

    Kubels never had national insignia applied. Apart from the rego, tactical signs and possibly a div marking, there was usually just a weight spec. stencilled on the doors.

    Cheers, Dave

    1. Thanks Dave - I'm no expert on German stuff, but you've made me realise I should have put division markings on them somewhere. I'll revisit when I come to look at my Radio Truck again.

  5. Good stuff Jamie. Small units like this are the perfect way to reignite that hobby mojo.
