German Artillery (yes, I know, yet more German models!)

I like building models of artillery. I especially like it when these models can be displayed with a full crew. I have four different pieces of artillery, one British (My 25 Pounder mentioned in a previous post) and 3 German. One of the German guns I have already posted about (My FLAK 37 88mm Anti-Tank Gun). Of the other two, unforunately only one has a full crew. The one that has a crew is myPAK 40/L46 75mm Anti-Tank Gun and is displayed with its crew on a cardboard base. The one that doesn't have a crew is a 20mm FLAK 38 Anti-Aircraft Gun. This is on my shelves shown being towed by a Krupp Protze 6x4 Truck.

I was going to do a seperate post about the Krupp Protze, but now that I have posted a picture of it here, I've decided not to. This is another good Support Vehicle model that I built. Again, it's got some nice detailing underneath, showing its powertrain and suspension. The next Support/Transport Vehicle that I would like to build is Tamiya's U.S. 'Deuce and a Half' 2 1/2 tonne truck. I will post about it if and when I am able to get hold of one.
