TKS Nebelwerfer for Dust

I was looking through the Plastics mountain a while ago and found some forgotten 1/35 plastics kits that could be useful for Dust Warfare. Suitably Dustified of course.
The first was a TKS, the polish tankette, from Mirage Hobby. It is, as I mentioned, in 1/35 scale and Dust is 1/48. But looking at it I thought it would pass as a modified 1947 vehicle. My thought is that the German industry uses whatever assets they’ve got and the Polish factories are churning out modified tankettes to help the war effort.
Anyway, I built the kit with some small modifications. I had to re-position the exhaust and remove some items from the back of the tankette as they were in the way of the Nebelwerfer 42 that I borrowed from a Lothar medium walker.
In-game the gun will probably represent a 30mm gun or something like that. I haven’t decided yet.

An easy little conversion project and I’m very happy with how it turned out. More stuff for Dust and one less kit in the mountain. Win-win.

  1. Reminds me of that Bren Carrier panzerschreck conversion the Germans used in Normandy.

    1. Yes, that one is very cool.
      Do you recognize the Nebelwefer? Slightly different colour now :-)

  2. That is a brilliant use of mixed miniatures! I am suitably inspired to say the least.

  3. Very neat "Dustification" of this plastic kit - I'm sure it will prove efficient on the gaming table as Nebelwerfers have a tendency to come in handy if the enemy is too persistent! "Feuer Frei"!
