Sd.Kfz. 11 with naval drilling (field modification) Budapest

Hi Friends!

I have found this picture in a hungarian book. It shows an sdkfz 11 wich has lost some reason it's 2cm flak gun, and hasa "naval" drilling as a replacement.
I'm quite at the begining of the building process. lots off filling and sanding still on the way.
I'm using the Dragon sdkfz drilling as a base, and for the conversion the Leadwarrior set. The drilling gun will be also the Leadwarrior set because it is lot more better than the dragon one, and thay are also the 20 mm type wich I wanted to build.
I have used some steal plates for the extra stowage box at the back. You can see it on the original photo that there is a big box on the back I thin it is for the drilling ammo boxes.
It seams that the vehicle overall has some hard edge camo but that box on the back has some soft edge different type camo!




first progress - note the compartment roof wich is incorrect on the leadwarrior kit:


after the correction. (many thanks to Fred Carbon who sent me original photos showing this vehicle from the top):








All comments wellcomed!

Aron

Could this be a field modification (?) Great start for your first vBench. This is one interesting vehicle and looking forward to follow your progress.

Hi Aron!

Welcome in the vBench topic!
I really like that you join in to this group, and I hope you'll show a lot of interesting model from your real workbench in the future

Well, as you know, this special halftruck will be my favorite all of your works, because I LOVE DRILLINGs! (BTW,what a great idea!)
And my other favorite is the figure
Keep biulding!

Good luck,
your friend,
