Dragon - SdKfz 250/3 GREIF

I've been out for a while but I have something new (and something older almost finished) and I thought I'd show you what's on the bench right now

I got the Dragon Sdkfz 250/3 for a nice reduced price and I've been working on it (very slowly ).
I'm using the Aber PE set for it and some touches of my own





The gun rack was a nightmare to build, and there are ejector marks everywhere on the inside.
With these pictures I just spotted another one

The figures are from Alpine (the painted one) and the other one included on the kit (Gen Rommel). The general figure is surprisingly good. I had put it aside but then I looked and can be made to look very good.

ALL opinions /suggestions welcome

amba,
What's the address you see on the address bar?
(I have hotlink protection on the server, but planet armor can ask pictures from my server).

edit: I just retouched the config on the server - www.planetarmor.com had permission but planerarmor.com did not. Hope it's solved.

That looks very good! Are those the old wheels- the latest new releases have a better set- and the 250/8 has a better drive sprocket too. Nice website too.

Hi James

Thanks
They are the kit wheels (released in 2000). I'm having second thoughts about them. The Aber set includes the bolts that hold the rubber pads on the sprocket but the road wheels are too "flat" for my taste. On top of that the outer ones seems a bit too wide for the tracks
I guess I'll have to check for some replacements (isn't this hobby a money pit? )

Here are some pics from the recent 250/8- the front wheels are different, having slices for the tire alla the 88mm. The drive sprocket is way nicer than the previous incarnations.

Wow. Way better detail than this set.
Geez, after so much time spent on this kit I even might consider getting that one to cannibalize OMG

Hi Antonio,

I can't see the pictures, end even when I go to your website I still get red x's. When I try to go to the pics directly e.g. http://www.pirespreto.com/images/static/250/250-3_1.jpg
I get:

Forbidden

You don't have permission to access /images/static/250/250-3_1.jpg on this server.

Additionally, a 404 Not Found error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.


I also tried with safari instead of IE but still same thing...

Hi amba,
Asking for the pic directly on the address bar of any browser should give the 403 error. This is done for avoiding the display of pictures on pages I don't want them to be displayed and to annoy to the fullest extent those that just copy pictures from sites and use them on theirs without permission. I can't avoid that they do but I try to annoy them the most I can.
However I can authorize some sites (like planet armor) to show those pics on their pages.
But the server needs to receive the referrer info on the request...
What this means is that if you have a personal firewall or some other utility that enforces privacy by not sending User Agent, Referrer, etc etc, then the server just assumes that is a view from a non authorized page and just send a forbidden error.
If you say that you can't even see the pics when browsing my server that's probably what happens. Your config is somehow blocking the sending of info to the server on the HTTP request. I can see some 403 errors on the log because of a missing referrer.
I do this to avoid image crawlers to "suck" load and bandwidth from the server and to avoid some "smart" people to use many pictures that I took during the years (especially RC) to display them on their pages without crediting the owner.
Sorry for the IT "off topic". But since we are in the season of joy and brotherly love I'll disconnect that feature for a while
You should be able to see them now.
