As a scale modeler it's neat to see real, near-real, and faked armor in these reenactments. Gives me plenty of ideas for modeling. And the troops with gear from the war helps me modify existing figures to be more life like. Thanks for these great images you've posted!

The reason that i believe this is a re-enactment photo and not an actual war photo is because three of the sdkfz halftracks in the picture have armored roofs over their personnel rear transport compartment, which none of the german sdkfz's in the Second world war ever had.

These must be Czechoslovakian OT-180's, (German halftracks sent to czechoslovakia after the war by russia, Czechoslovakia added armored roofing over the original german design of a top open personnel compartment) which are largely used in reenactments since they have to be, considering reenactors usually don't have a choice since original sdkfz halftracks are no longer in existence, or are scarce/unobtainable.

Since halftrack were made in Czechoslovakia, there was no need to send them in form Russia..

talking about the halftracks the russians captured in germany and then some sent to Czechoslovakia where they were modified with roofs/etc like the rest... thus why original/unmodified/accurate sdkfz 251's are near impossible to come by, especially for reenactor's.

"OT-810 - Czechoslovakian produced version, made by Praga and Tatra. This version had an air cooled diesel engine, and an armored roof over the troop compartment."
OT 810 were newly made, not refurbished used vehicles.

Yea... talking about the captured sdkfz halftracks distributed by russia to fellow soviet countries, some of which ended up being converted/modified and with near to none of those thousands of halftracks surviving today.

Once again: OT-810 is derived from "halftrack" but its different, e.g. motor section is longer because of bigger engine and even side plates are bit different.
But, because there is lack of halftracks and enough of useable OT-810, its quite often used as sdkfz substitute in re-encatment.

Yea... didn't say every last sdkfz captured was sent to soviet czech, yet some were, with whatever remaining leftovers all being destroyed/or scrapped for soviet industry.

"quite often used as sdkfz substitute in re-encatment" yes, just as i stated in original comment.

Nope, OT-810 is post war product based on knowledge from building them for Germans during the war.
Soviets didnt send them to Czechoslovakia, there were the factories where they were made. So after war Czechs made new version with some improvements.
