Hummel Motorized Howitzer
My Hummel. Due to the Blitzkreig stratagy employed by the Wermchat a more mobile breed of artillery was needed. The Hummel was created without any armor on top, but in the days it was built the Luffwafe ruled the air and attack from above was rare. The Hummel had a poor amo capacity of 18 rounds, so a amo carrier version was devised. The Hummel remained in service untill the end of the war. This is one of my best creations, the tread design is accurate, if not quite presice. Please enjoy and comment. =)

Quoting Tom Simon Your rendition is nicely proportioned, and I want to call it cute, though that is inappropriate for a weapon of war. The real thing was designed in 1942 on the Pz IV chasis with Pz III drive train elements. The Luftwaffe was not quite obliterated over Britain, they just failed to guarantee the success of a planned invasion of Britain. Finally, SP guns and tank destroyers do not skimp on armor because they are not expected to need protection from air attack (Tigers were quite vulnerable to that as well), but because they are not expected to operate close to enemy infantry. I'll end how I started, the point of MOC, your LEGO rendition is fine.
The Lufftwaffe was not completely destroyed after the Battle of Britian, but its hardly an arguable point that by D-Day and the liberation of Paris their ability to prevent air attacks on their own units was severly damaged, enough so that air strikes made up a large part of the units that were knocked out. I never implied that they skimped on armor because of never being expected to be hit from above, just that that was one of the side effects of this design. But I'm being cold, I greatly appreciate your comment and feedback, especially on my narratives and introductions, I try to compose them well. You have a point, these SPGs were never meant to be less than a few hundred meters from the front, but I find it surprising that the Germans hand't figured out by the time the built the Tiger that tanks were going to be upclose with infantry. Like I said thanks for your comment. =)

Quoting Ruben Riojas Real nice, you nailed the hull and cannon perfectly.
Thanks, I think this is one of my better creations (considering its my 2nd most popular I would guess so), looking at it now, I wish I had taken a shot of the side from a lower angle. Unfortunately it was destroyed, so... =)

This is Tom Thompson Builder of the KUBELWAGEN.Thx for your comments and I will try to improve on my presentations. The purpose of the listing was to show the KUBELWAGEN and the work and detail that went into it. It was not to show a historical correct depiction of the Eagles"s Nest. The background was simply done to enhance and give a fitting background to the KUBELWAGEN!!!This I believe was accomplished. L@@K again and rate and tell me what you think of the KUBELWAGEN and I suggest you look at all the Kubelwagens done on MOC to evaluate my effort. I am VERY familiar with the 101st Airborn and "Band of Brothers". As you know it was the German General in his farewell speach to his troops that created the term " Band of Brothers" ( Not the Americans) I have in fact been to the Eagle's Nest in Germany (Lived in Germany for 3 years) many times and I know what it looks like so what I did was strictly a supporting effort to embelish the KUBELWAGEN. I think you missed this KEY part. After all let us not forget this is Legos and it is suppose to be fun and NOT 100 % historically correct. LIGHTEN UP and ENJOY this for what it Really is. THX TT What is your attachment to the 101st Airborn??? Also if you look closely you will see that there is a Bikini Girl in the back of the American Jeep and this was done in JEST as I am sure this did not take place in Bavaria!! THX Again TT

Quoting General Qua-cor Peala i used to take mine out side but to bright. So i went to $ store and bought poster board.
I'm starting to take mine inside now, next to some bay windows with all artificial lights turned off and at dusk so the sun comes into the widows. Its way better, I also put paper behind my MOC when I photograph. To see the results check out my Stalingrad MOC! =)

This is pretty good! I think this is the best you can do with the rubber-tracks that you have. Hopefully you can get hold of some technic tracks one day ;-) Keep building!

Quoting Landkreuzer P.1000 Ratte its good and all but it was built on the chassis of a tiger or konig tiger and the german luftwaffe was almost exterminated during the battle of brittain because of poor decisions made by goering.
Thanks for commeting! The chassis may be that of a Panzer VI or a King Tiger but the running gear design is different. This may not make mcuh sense but there is more to a chassis than running gear, i.e. suspension, the hull, engine compartment ect. And allthought the Luffwafe was vanquished, at the time the designs were drawn up(early WWII, when the invasion of mainland Europe was in progress) they still ruled the sky. =)
