Sancar Buhur shares with us some images of his Famo. The model used is the Tamiya offering in 1/35th scale. In addition to the Tamiya Famo, Sancar also used Verlinden resin accessories.

In the same way that a 911 is not a Porsche?

But a 911 is built by one company: Porsche. No Renault 911s, or Ford 911s.

Other companies besides FAMO built the Sd.Kfz.9.

Gents, the Wehrmacht planned an entire series of half-tracks, and this was at the apex for towing power. There isn't a HanoMag, there's an Sd.Kfz.251.

Bill I agree with you, but when you say Famo most people know what you are talking about. It is a bit like a Porsche king tiger which is also not correct.

I'm not disagreeing with anyone; just having a bit of fun. It was actually educational for me to go and do some research to find the facts behind Bill's statement.

Wow, what a great FAMO. Looks just like an Sd.Kfz. 9.

Seriously, It is a beautiful build. Weathering is superb and the stowage looks realistic and really brings some life to the half track.

Brilliant Work. I would love to someday have half the level of artistic skill you display here. I especially like the detail work put into the cargo being carried in the rear of the vehicle. It is that extra time put in that makes the model so realistic. Also, a quick question, how did you get the seat of the vehicle to have the appearance of leather stretched over the frame and not just painted on?
