Attack Models 1/72 German Field Kitchen w/Table & Accessories Build Review

Skill Level Intermediate MSRP (USD) $19.98

Background

Attack has given us a nice little kit of the Hf. 14 field kitchen with table and food accessories. This field kitchen was an essential item in the support of the Wehrmacht soldier and has fantastic diorama potential. Combine this kit with Preiser figures, German soft skins and AFVs and you will have the basis of a superb diorama.

Construction

Field Kitchen

The construction is a straight forward build. If you have any experience building resin kits you will find the kit easy to complete. I did encounter a problem removing the brake assembly from the sprue. I should have removed it using a hot knife since it is very fragile. Instead I tried to remove it using an Xacto knife. I ended up scratch building a replacement from Evergreen strip. The main and smaller cooking containers can be modeled open or closed. I chose to model only the main container in the open position.

Painting

The kit was painted in standard Panzergrau. No decals are included in the kit but none are needed. The table was painted a desert tan color and then artists oils were used to simulate the wood grain. The field kitchen was finally weathered with Bragdon and Tamiya weathering pastels.

Conclusions

The Attack kit builds up into a great replica of the original. This kit would be a valuable addition to any 1/72 scale armor modeler’s collection who is seeking to build dioramas.
