This finely crafted 1:56 scale resin model of a 1930s American Studebaker Sedan is a reflection of the era's automotive design, suitably sized for 28mm wargaming. It echoes the historical period with precision and embodies the character of a vehicle that would have been repurposed during World War II. It's an interesting piece for those keen on the requisitioned vehicles used by German forces, providing a piece of history for collections and gaming.  Remember, this model arrives unpainted, allowing you the joy of personalising it to your own taste.

1:56 for 28mm WW2 Era American automobile. Ideal for use as a WW2 requisitioned vehicle. Now in use as a staff car by the Germans.

Dimensions: Length 84mm, Width 36mm, Height 35mm.

The idea for this came from photos in a book on WW2 German vehicles. Page 190 of 'Cars of the Wehrmacht' ISBN 0-88740-687-4. An excellent photo record of hundreds of commandeered vehicles put into service by the Germans during WW2. 5 piece quick kit. Assembly required.

The ‘IN ACTION’ images of this model are included here in order to give you some ideas for setting the scene on your own model railway or wargaming table. Many of the other items in the photographs are also produced by me and are available here from this site. The majority of the painting and detailing work was done using mainly acrylic paints due to their fast drying time. The process is to wash the resin model in warm soapy water to remove any traces of the silicone mould release agent. This will aid good paint adhesion. Next I recommend a primer, but I don’t bother unless the model will be subject to a lot of handling. After applying the main colours I then use a dark wash to increase the contrast and once dry a quick ‘dry brush’ with a lighter shade to pick up the raised details. Finally a spray or brush matt varnish for protection."- Stuart
