    Hi Al, it was purchased many years ago here in the UK. Back then they were fairly cheap and I think only about 3500. He keeps getting offers from people wanting to buy it, but he is keeping it. It lives just down the road from me.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Hi Ade. Your friends OT810 is really taking on the look of a real German SdKfz 251!! She's looking BL$$DY MARVELOUS!!! How long has he been busy with the alterations? Regards Thomas

    Hi Thomas, he has been working on t for at least 10 years. In fact, he "finished" it once, then discovered he had made a lot of mistakes, so he took the whole body to bits and started a fresh!

    Cheers, Ade.

    Sounds like quite the perfectionist then
    He done a fantastic job, I think most people would think its always been a Sdkfz 251D if they werent told otherwise.
    Thanks

    Hi Petr, the half track is still as "work in progress" I think. He needs to change them.

    Your groups one looks great!

    He had a specialist rubber company make the pads. These were bonded onto a metal plate which was then welded to the tracks.

    Cheers, Ade.

    thanks mate
    aha, we (or rather owner/driver) had few spare tracks ready for adding rubber shoes , but he decided to give up , to much hustle and mainly we run out of money
    he wants change front mg42 for pak40 in future,we'll see.
    cheers.petr

    here used to be one unconverted ot810 on czech auction site called Aukro - Aukce OnLine (circa half year ago) but that seller asked 500 000 czk , bit overkill . my mate, slovakian collector was interested,but communication with seller was pain in the arse so he gave up.most of tatras were sold abroad and they became bloody expensive here too.
    EDIT - you haven't mentioned where are you from.........
