Possible paint schemes for my SdKfz.251/22D...

I have only two references for this vehicle and neither mentions much, in the way of likely paint schemes for this vehicle. Can anyone help me determine the most likely, or typical paint scheme for my AFV Club kit? The instructions provided, show a variation of the three color scheme. Are there other references, or pictures out there? I guess I'm just looking for something a little different and would appreciate any help in this matter. I had done a search for SdKfz. 251/22Ds and came up with comparatively little. Thank you, for reading this. I look forward to responses and/or suggestions. Best regards, Dave

David,

You have two options,

The first is to make a factory made /22, which probably had a factory aplied camo scheme. (Members, please correct me if I'm wrong.)
The seond one is to make a /22 converted by the unit in the field from a Sdkfz 251/ 9 Stummel. (This was an official conversion.)You could then fe paint the halftrack in one scheme and the Pak in another.
There's an allocation list for the /22 in the forum, a search should turn it up.

Enjoy.

best regards,


Marc Brandes

I did another search and have seen some of that, to which you refer. I'm leaning toward a hard-edged scheme, with a plain dark yellow gun and shield. I appreciate your response and will keep my eye out for those /9 conversions you mention. Best regards, Dave

Hello David, there are quite a few pics of the Pakwagen in the Panzerwrecks book series, as well factory ones as conversions. Most of them indeed show a a very similar, almost identical, (factory) hard edged three color scheme.
even the converted ones are similar in scheme as the late war 251/9 were usually factory painted too...

Regards, Alfred.

based on Panzerwrecks book. It was a field conversion.

Hope that helps

a turret from a French tank? I think the number on the rear of the halftrack is '324'.

thank you for sharing,

I'm leaning toward a hard-edged, three-tone camo scheme. I think it would be fun to paint and look good. I appreciate your contribution. Best regards, Dave

I think it is a 251 with drilling. I can have a look into panzerwrecks book and I can also check if I have a high res images somewhere..
