The interior set looks real nice. But it does look like it's based of interior shots of Kubinka's Befehls Stupa which is an early 1.Series Stupa. Tristar is the only one who makes this version.

To use it in DML, you would have to discard the ducting tubes and discard one set of radios for a non Befehls version.

Hi Laz- I'm being lazy..
Where can one see these interior shots-
also which ducting tubes- those grey one in the front aft of the drivers spot? . Seems that it is maybe a good kit for both Tristar and DML kits- with a minor exclusion to make it right? Also, the only game in town at this point. Still can't see how the guys would enter and exit that top hatch and fire the MG- doesn't seem to be any place to plant their feet?

There are pics of the Kubinka Stupa in both Trojca books (more pics in the older softcover). The two ducting tubes are attached to the underside of the roof and serve to extract fumes from the gun and expel them through the two outlets on the back of the superstructure. The were found to be ineffective and was replaced with a ventilator during the Vienna re-fit.

That's the million dollar question. Griffon has a large box with two ammo boxes on top of at the rear of the compartment. I am not convinced this is correct. I have only seen one photo of this are and it was a partial shot. I also have not seen any photos that show seats for the loader and commander.

Hi James,

Thanks a lot for the link!
