Flak,

I am going to use the Voyager sets:

35045. Sd.Kfz.251 Ausf.D Basic Type (DRA)
35043. Sd.Kfz.251 Ausf.D w/75mm KwK37 (DRA)

Lot of bang for your buck or PE in this case . Has floor pan, resin tires, tools and seems a lot of PE for $16.75.

There's no sprue to cut them from, which means nothing gets in the way of the fun time you'll have filling and sanding all those pin marks! I took one look at those and said no thanks...
It's looking good so far Mike. Keep it up.

Hi Mike,

I think your wheels look great. As for the tracks, have you seen my sbs on Sherman MK tracks? It's inside my M-36 build. I think you'll see what I mean. Not to burst your bubble or anything but if you glued your outside wheels together, I would suggest trying to pull them apart asap as you won't be able to put them all on. What I mean is the inside one goes on first then the middle, or double wheel, THEN the outside wheel. Thats why they're called interleaved. If you haven't glued them together, then disregard my whole rambling.

Larry

While glueing the inner and outer wheels together may not have been a very good idea, hope is not all lost. One way to mount the wheels, may be to line up the wheels in the interleaved fashion, keeping the wheels together with tape along the wheel edges, laying them on the table with hub caps down. Then I think it would be possible to "thread" the suspension arms down into the wheels. Or maybe an easier way, is to put the vehicle on the side, and try to apply the taped-together wheels to the suspension. If the glue has set, I'd rather try this, than to try to pry them apart.

Keep us posted on developments!
