Hello folks,

Could anybody of you tell me the right colour scheme for Romanian SdKfz. 251 Ausf.C, because I got finally Armourfasts Hanomags... cool.gif

Exactly the same as a German one but with Romanian number plates.

Posted by: Ursulescu October 16, 2010 06:17 pm
Including the German Cross, or did they use the King Michael Cross?

Posted by: Alexei2102 October 16, 2010 06:24 pm
Nope, German cross was erased.

Good to know. I'm trying out a new war game (New to me anyway) called "Rapid-fire". It uses 1/72nd scale figures. I'm going to field a romanian army using Hat figures and I'm trying to piece together my army.

Anyone know of any manufacturer that makes the Skoda R-2 tank in 1/72nd?

Posted by: King Arthur October 16, 2010 09:18 pm
I only know R2's (Pzkpfw 35(t) actually ) and R1's from Attack Hobby Kits in 1/72nd scale.

See links below: maybe can be converted to Tacam

There was also one like the above in the past from Esci/Ertl and Fujimi ( 1/76 scale )

Good luck!

By the way Mr Ursulescu,

I found also something else that might be interesting for you:

Have fun!

And so I need to use Panzergrau also for the Romanian SdKfz.'s

Posted by: Ursulescu October 18, 2010 06:55 pm
ThanX King Arthur. I wonder if anyone has those tanks in North America or Canada that I can get easier. I'm a bit leery about sending money into countries that are so far away.

Mr Urslescu,

You can always try on ebay and use Paypal for payment what is quite safe....

Just watched Vlad VS Sun Tzu. Glad Vlad won...but the Romanian weapons, especially the Kilij were just brutal!

I thought the Halbred would have been too "Clumsy" compaired to the face ripping Zuai, because the Halbred has to come out of a guy, thus slowing down the weapon....but I was wrong.

Is there any where they pit Vlad against other historical warriors?

To KameradSchnürschuh:

I found this on internet, maybe it can help you and maybe somebody can tell if it's correct.

The last 3 pictures and description is about a Romanian model.

@King Arthur

Thank you very much for this information, after the Italeris Fast Assembly SdKfz's 251/1 Ausf. D are released I will also do some of these in Romanian colour scheme... smile.gif

Ursulescu, Sorry I should have said to remove the German cross. I am glad to see a new RF player, do have a look at this forum, we play a game every summer with Colin Rumford umpiring.

This company makes figures and vehicles in the UK which you might find helpful,

And this one in the US, I use a mix of figures from both.

Posted by: King Arthur October 20, 2010 09:15 pm
Maybe you can can find here also some info:

These are modelling/background articles with tips and information and a lot of pictures... Not bad for a hobby site!

Posted by: Ursulescu October 20, 2010 09:42 pm
ThanX guys for the help! Being in Canada is not always good. I might be the only guy interested in Rapid Fire in a 1000 mile radius!

I fully agree.
That's why I left the country and returned to Europe. wink.gif

I possess a Rapid Fire Romanian Army.
I have 3 battalions of Infantry (in metal from 3 different manufacterers)
The Bulk of my R2's (10 of them) and R1's (only 1) are ostmodels along with my 47mm ATG, 50mm pak and Resita 75mm battery (2 guns).
The 251's are plastic (I have the recon battalion)
I use a mixture of Russian and opel Blitz for trucks to mount my infantry.
My Engineer battalion (Flamethrowers are awesome in Rapid fire) is mounted in Soviet Zis trucks.
TACAMs are also Ostmodels (3 of)
i have 1/2 a cavalry regiment also (metal)

I have designed my army so that it can play early war 1941 with R2's
then 42 with Pz IIIN and PzIVF-2 mediums companies
43- I have 38t's and a Stuart. Captured at Ozerika
44- Stug III's, TACAMs, PZIV's.

Good luck, they are good fun and competitive vs Soviets.
PzIV's and resita are able to take on any heavy armour they have.
please feel free to ask me any questions.

Ursulescu, You might be surpised, I know at least two Canadian Rf players !

Posted by: Ursulescu October 22, 2010 08:42 pm
In Calgary, or in High River, Alberta?

That would be nice!

Is there any way someone kindhearted enough on this site could send me a R2 tank model or an IAR 80/81 in 1/72nd scale?

Posted by: King Arthur October 24, 2010 06:11 pm
Mr Ursulescu,

One of the people in this forum site is a modelshop owner from Bucharest.
I met him one time when I was in Bucharest for hollidays and he's a nice person and also interested in Dacian and WW2 models and era.
In this site his nickname is: Olaf the Viking
This is the link to his shop:

The site is in Romanian but the peolpel speak also english so you can contact them by e-mail

Good luck!

Posted by: King Arthur October 24, 2010 06:22 pm
Maybe this can be of interest also for Rapid Fire enthousiasts:

They have some !free! downloadable scenario's ...

Posted by: Ursulescu October 25, 2010 10:14 am
ThanX King Arthur!

I will try to get in contact with the hobbyshop owner, however I'm not sure about the shipping of models from one counrty to another. It's a long way to go for a kit...more than 1/2 way around the world from Alberta to Romania! However, considering CDN dollar to ROM Lei, I should get a really good price on them. I just hope CDN Customs doesn't heap a big fee on it!

What I need to find is someone who imports AModel (And the other Russian/Czech/Eastern Europe made stuff) into Canada or the USA. Let that guy deal with international shipping, loss of items, customs, etc that go into dealing with people overseas. Once the items are here, on my continent, it's easier for me to have them shipped across country at wholesale prices and bring them into my store and charge my retail.

So far, in my internet searching, I've only been able to find AModel through European sources, be it from the Ukrane or England, as an example. I haven't found anything over here, say in Illinois or Ontario... which is what I need to find.

Sadly, there isn't a convienent "Wholesaller's list", like a telephone book of wholesalers I can open up and look at. Most wholesalers are quite secretive. They find can't find them. Also, some hobby shops will tell you their wholesallers, others will not. It's taken me 6 years to get mine, and I know I still don't have enough.

But if I did get some of this stuff from AModel, I'm pretty sure I'd be exclusive in selling it. However, the question is : Do I have a large enough clientel to sell it to?

(Sorry guys. I hate to sound like a pain. It's just a gamble to get products. It's nice to know that something's a "Sure thing" before diving into it.)

Posted by: Ursulescu October 25, 2010 11:11 am
@ King Arthur - I just sent him an E-mail, but I checked him out and his last post here was in 2008. His site also deals in Romanian Lei, which according to the money converter, is outdated currency. (It would be nice though...if I remember correctly, 21 Lei is = to $0.07 Cdn, which means I could buy his store out for $500! rolleyes.gif )

Also, not speaking Romanian, I sure hope I can deal with this guy. I can only "Translate" @ 50% of the web page, maily by clicking on pictures and figuring it out from there. (Stock and Stoc is the same, for example)

I also wonder how long it would take for somethign to come from there to here? 1 month- 2 months?

However, he sure has a lot of models in his inventory! It will be nice if this all works out!

Posted by: King Arthur October 25, 2010 01:26 pm
Mr. Ursulescu,

It is true that some sites say Lei instead of RON ,the RON is the new Lei.
Some people still use the old money and also convert the new prices to the old Lei prices to sse how expensive something is...
So when you put ROn in your currency converter it will be like this:

€ 1 -> 4.27 Ron
CD$ 1 -> 3 RON
CD$ 1 -> € 0.70

So i'm sorry, you cannot buy his whole shop for $500 ... smile.gif

Why don't you send e-mails to A-models and the other ones to see if they have an agent in Canada or USA ? Or maybe you can become an agent....

Posted by: Ursulescu October 25, 2010 04:56 pm
I was thinking of that. they are listed in Finescale Modler magazine, so they must have some credentials.

Yeah, too bad I couldn't buy the shop for $500!

Posted by: Ursulescu October 27, 2010 04:22 pm
ThanX for the links King Arthur! The pictures will help me out when I'm looking on the model kit shelf to build my army. I can put a "Face" to the name of the vehicle.
